I know it’s an overwhelming time for many during this COVID-19 phase of the year. Especially rooting for people with multiple school aged kids to have to homeschool for now.
I myself have a kinder kid, a 2 year old in early ed, and a 7 month baby. Of course my husband, thankfully, is able to work cut hours to keep our bellies appropriately full.
Yes, our structured days all went out the window after day 3 of our original spring break. I held on to a couple of things that are absolutely essential to getting back to normal after all this is over. Meal times, nap times, and bedtimes. Honestly as long as we don’t drive each other crazy who cares what the in-between parts of the day are or even what order. My oldest does have school work online, another thanks, which she gets done when she is in her best spirit. Same for my toddler, that girls gets her learning in right before nap time. And my baby, well, he learns all day. 🤩
NAP TIME I will tell you is simply THE BEST FRIEND in my day. They all nap at the same time. I may not always be able to nap as well with them, but I can at least lay, rest, and/or read for that time. I can’t imagine not being able to have a few minutes of silence, to clear my mind of to-do’s and the news, and to check in with loved ones a bit. I think everyone is and wants to do their best at this time. I surely do.
I’ll tell you that for me personally- NAP TIME is what gets me through my today’s.
