I think about people on the front lines and parents both working full-time jobs on top of this homeschooling saga and feel guilty even bringing my hard to the table. But you guys, this is hard for everyone. And everyone else's hard doesn't make yours any less hard.
What was your favorite thing about me today, mommy? This has become our new routine, one she won’t let me forget. Every night, as I tuck her in, I tell her. Every night, she asks.
What if we met people where they're at rather than where we want them to be? What if we used this time of being home with our family, this time of putting schedules and pickups and activities on hold, to really learn each other better?
When you wake up tomorrow, you can try to be kinder and love harder. You can try to not watch TV (or eat chocolate or scroll Facebook) even if you slipped today.
What if we teach our kids to be confident in who they are by the way we live our lives?
