We are living through a historic time, and I want to make sure I document as much as possible during lockdown in my Stuck at Home Quarantine Journal!
Stuck at Home Quarantine Journal: Home School First Day Findings During Lockdown
First thing might be the most important. Get dressed. Even though you cannot go anywhere right now due to lockdown, shuttering, or whatever you call it–get dressed. Brush your hair.
Because as you make your way across the living room, in your night gown older than your first born (who is now in college), you will hear giggles because a bunch of 14-year-olds just saw you.
Zoom meetings. Virtual classroom. Mom fail number 1. First Day. Not even an hour went by.
Set up a lunch menu. For the love of all that is Holy DO NOT ASK THEM WHAT THEY WANT FOR LUNCH.
I had 2 in tears, and one in the fetal position. My left eye hasn’t stopped twitching since noon.
Pretty sure it was teachers that led the revolution to legalize marijuana. I know my mind could use some medicinal calming after learning rhyming with the 5-year-old, all about the Arctic fox with the 9-year-old, and teaching the 14-year-old how to simplify equations with fractions and negative exponents. Did you remember negative exponents were even a thing?
I learned my 5-year-old thinks the flap in front of his boxer briefs is still a pocket. So, if you ever come over and he offers you anything and he says “it was in my pocket”, politely say no.
Tonight’s agenda: make supper and have everyone enjoy at least one part, and then attempt to get through a family art class without tears, and without body parts being glued to furniture… or other people’s body parts.
