I’m having coffee in bed. There is absolutely no reason for me to get up. My teens aren’t going to starve to death if I don’t get up. Only reason to get up however is to make coffee but since I had to pee anyway…
I have coffee now. In bed. 🙂☕
I had a thought about Mother’s Day.
How many moms in lockdown wants to spend time with the kids on Mother’s Day?
Everyday has been Mother’s Day for the past 14 months… haha 🙃
It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday and I’m getting vaccinated at noon that day. Afterwards we’ll head into my mom’s town and spend some time with her. That’s the plan. Unless I have a seizure and pass out…Ugh.
I bumped into a neighborhood mom on my walk yesterday. She was with her youngest of three boys. He is in maybe grade two or three at most. It was early afternoon and they were taking a walk to one of the many pebble beaches in my area. She looked worn out. She said the child was getting headache-y from all the online screen time so she told the teacher she would excuse him from class to take him outside for a walk.
Another write-off school year. And there’s no end in sight.
Although the shutting of schools certainly did not stop the spread of covid either – the exact opposite happened.
So anyway, Mother’s Day is coming up and I think many moms, especially those who are homeschooling their younger children, probably want nothing more than to have all of the children leave the house and leave her alone. That would be the perfect gift for those moms: solitude in an empty house for 6 hours.
Which isn’t going to happen in lockdown. Where are they going to go?
I see you and I feel you if you’re one of those moms. Happy Mother’s Day to you and me on Sunday.
