Well even if it has been 7 months since the last blog, its not been as long as the time before 🤷🏼♀️
Today is my 3rd day back in the studio with my kids in school. I have thought about this blog since Tuesday morning when I dropped them off but really didn’t know how to put it all into words. There is so much uncertainty/confusion/fear right now as a parent.
This should feel “normal” going into the studio after dropping off my kids to school but it doesn’t. I normally feel a little sad on a normal 1st day of school from missing them after being with them all summer, seeing how grown up they are walking into school and hoping they will be safe from danger. This is a different type of sad. Its fear and sadness all rolled up into a big ball of worry. What if they will contract the virus and get sick. Possibly have it and not know it and pass it on to others. What science isn’t sure of is if they will have life long repercussions from the virus.
Everyone has their own opinions and reasons to send them or not send them and there is truly not a plan that will be perfect for each family, it would just be nice if our county provided parents with sufficient options for our kids this school year. A lot of true colors have really shown from people since March 13th 2020.
While 2020 had a lot of challenges and fearful moments, it had some great ones. We tried to make the best of it getting many things accomplished with our extra time at home and soak up the extra time with our kids. Like Reg always says “we only have a few summers left with them before they move out to college.”
Thanks for reading my ramblings, this blog wasn’t that planned out, just wanted to get my worries on paper and tell you that it’s okay to not know how to feel right now.
Give yourself some grace… and along with that grace, follow the guidelines, stay home, wear a mask OVER your nose, wash your hands for at least 20 seconds, and stay socially distant!
