Have you ever wondered what your kids will say about their experience through this quarantine? What will be their story? How will you as a parent fit into it? Do you ever think about it?
Because at some point, life will resume and probably ease into some form of the fast-pace we were at before all this Coronavirus hit. It may still take time, but I am not looking forward to that frenetic pace. So while my college kids have been home, I’ve been enjoying it.
I want to ask my kids when it’s all over. I mean, we’ve already had conversations about it and how they’re feeling throughout the experience. I’ve experienced first-hand the frustration of being a mom of kids who want to go out and see their friends and girlfriends and been told ‘no’ by me because it’s not safe. As you may recall it didn’t go well, but we worked through it.
I always like to find the silver lining. For me, it’s been that we’ve worked through a lot together. Because there’s no place to go really since we’re at home so it’s either work through the feelings or be uncomfortable together. I’ve had enough of walking on eggshells in my life, so I am one who likes to talk it out. And so far, it’s worked for us. Bumpy at times, but it’s worked for us.
How about you? How’s it going in your home? How are you and your kids doing? How are your relationships? Are they withering or blossoming? I hope my post finds you in a good place. I’m thinking of you.
