What's a girl to do now?
Updated: May 23, 2020
The whole point of this blog, when I started a few months back (months? it feels like another lifetime ago), was to group together ideas and source new ones from others in the same position I was. At that time I was working full time with 2 kids in school and all the activities that they were interested in.
But now that has changed. No job. No school. No activities.
So, now we have to change. We are living in unprecedented times. There is no road map. I do know this. We all have the abilities to adapt to this temporary change. We have all the tools because we already have to adapt on the fly constantly. We can be the teacher and the coach and the parent all in one right now. Because we have to be. Our kids need us to be.
You won't get a chance like this again. Spring clean the house. Spend time teaching the kids (who cares that you aren't a teacher?!) Do the workouts with them (who cares that you don't know how to coach?!) This is the time to do all those things that you never had time to do before. Do them as a family, whatever family looks like to you. I think you will be surprised in the things that kids will participate in when given the chance to do things alongside mom or dad. Live right now like no one is watching.
