Sometimes you have to throw away your responsibilities for the day, and live in the moment.
This COVID transition has been hard. Olivia loved her school, I loved my job, we finally had a set routine.
Then it happened, the shut downs.
At first it was very difficult. Not going to lie. Olivia woke up at 6 am everyday for about a month ready to go to school. She didn’t quite understand why it wasn’t safe for her to go.
Eventually she got used to our new routine.
We’re thriving at home, I’ve been able to spend a lot of quality time that I really missed out on that year of working full time. I’m able to be very hands on, help guide and fuel her interests, doing lots of fun and messy crafts. And overall we’ve been able to just slow down.
She still has days every once in a while when she asks about her teachers. And you can tell that it makes her feel down. She’s very in tune with her emotions, she’ll tell you if she’s feeling sad, happy, tired and, even frustrated.
Yesterday was one of those days.
So we had our breakfast, threw out the todo list and spent all morning at the park (we were the Only ones at the playground, I was so nervous about that, but’s that’s another story for another day) and then went to Chick-fil-A for lunch.
Sometimes you just have to throw away your responsibilities for the day, and that’s ok. ❤️
