Analysis | We’ve been cooped up with our families for almost a year. This is the result.

Toys are neatly lined up in the Elkridge, Md., backyard of Amy Phillips in April 2020. Phillips, a mental health counselor, and her husband, a government contractor, worked from home with their four kids. They had to let their nanny go before the lockdown and it's been chaos ever since. (Toni L. Sandys/The Washington Post)
