With all the things going on with the virus, it’s an understatement to say it has been a weird month. The past week in particular has been so strange and alarming. Sometimes I’m frozen and feel myself succumbing to the paranoia and panic that has seemed to grip the globe. At the same time, I want to keep living our lives.
It feels strange to post like normal with everything going on and all of us laying low right now. I was even doing some online shopping and thinking about how unimportant a new blouse seems in comparison to the news. I think this is the case, but you probably come here to escape from all the craziness going on in the world. So I’m going to keep my chin up and try my best to bring you content that makes both of us happy.
Sidney is what keeps me upbeat and positive when it seems like the world is crumbling. I know that she needs me to be a happy and upbeat mom, but the truth is that I need her as much as she needs me. She’s my sunshine when everything feels bleak and unknown. Her sweet smile makes me feel so much better. I’m making it a priority to make her laugh more, by dancing around to her favorite songs and reading her favorite books with even more animation. Some day we will look back and tell her about the craziness that happened in the first year of her life.
Dan, Jake and Elwood are pretty awesome, too. It’s only a matter of time until Dan will have to work from home, and we will all be able to give each other lots of extra love. Extra pets and baby cuddles make everyone happy, right? I think we could all use a little extra love right now. Stay safe, friends!
How are you laying low these next two weeks? Let me know in a comment below!
