I used to love September and looked forward to the beginning of school. Fall temperatures and back to a normal routine made me so happy as a Mom because by then (pre-pandemic), I’d be getting weary of the summer freedom frenzy and the heat. I needed to take back the reins so that I could be more productive and the kids could get back on a decent schedule.
But this summer wasn’t normal for any of us. And schools are opening, but it’s not going to be like it was last year at this time. I feel badly for the college kids because each university has a different set of rules these days and they keep changing it up. My kids will be online in September so they’re not living in a dorm, nor commuting. I’d rather have them here, than worrying about the lack of social distancing at college and the what if’s that would probably be keeping me up at night. Such is the new normal for now.
How are you doing?
What’s your kids’ school schedule look like?
Are they going back to school in a classroom? In a dorm? Or are they online?
How do you feel about it?
What are your kids saying about it?
Being a single parent isn’t easy and dealing with the pandemic and quarantine has added more stress than ever. But so far we’re surviving here.
How are you? I’m listening…and I’m here for you!
