Alright guys, week one down – how is everyone doing? If I’m being honest, not too much has changed for me other than not having our usual childcare scenario, being less busy on email and not running errands.
Usually in this scenario without childcare, I would feel overwhelmed and stressed. However because my email is slower than usual, I’ve actually been able to use that free time to get organized and spent more one-on-one time with Hudson. And it’s been really nice! After spending so much time with him during his colicky weeks, now that he’s happy it is a joy to spend this extra time with him. Working from with a crying baby? Not easy. Working from home with a happy baby? Challenging but definitely more do-able.
I’ve chosen to choose gratitude over anxiety. Grateful that we have a home, backyard and neighborhood with fresh air to spend this “social distancing” time in. I’m grateful that I have a happy little baby boy to make the days fly by. Grateful that I get to be the one to get him up from every nap, soak up every smile and kiss. We’re grateful that we can afford to stock our pantry and refrigerator and that the grocery stores have plenty of food. Grateful for all of our healthcare employees, grocery store employees, police force, delivery men and women and so on who are putting themselves at risk so we can all stay home.
I shared some of my top activities for staying in this week in this post, but I’d love to hear your favorite thing you did this week! I love seeing how everyone is really coming together to help and share positivity right now. It’s what I hope I’ll remember from this unusual time in history.
