The hours have turned into days; the days have turned into weeks. We’re stuck at home, and sometimes it feels like the life force is sucked out of us. Whether you have teenagers and are trying to figure out how to keep them at home away from friends, kids you are trying to homeschool, or babies who don’t understand why they can’t play at the park, this time is HARD. It’s overwhelming, and it’s stressful. Mama, we’re all feeling it! And we’re all together in figuring out ways to help our little ones feel safe and loved through this all.
At the end of the day, that’s the most important thing: that our babies feel calm and loved through all this uncertainty. We can make this time beautiful, something that they remember with fondness and joy. It doesn’t have to be expensive. It doesn’t have to be hard. We can find ways to make this awful, scary time a time of love and joy. Amid the uncertainty, amid the fear, amid the darkness.
Make your home a haven during isolation by trying a few things:
This routine can help you and your family feel confident in what will happen during the day. You can talk to your kids about what crafts they want to do, research hikes for your family to go on, and more. This will help everyone feel more in control and excited about the days ahead.
As a mama, you are exactly what your kids need. They need YOU. We have been given a unique opportunity here. And it’s hard and it’s scary, but we can make the best of a difficult situation. By showing our families extra loving and truly turning our home into a haven during this storm, we will get closer. And we’ll remember the beautiful and amazing things that happened for us during this time.
We’re all a little afraid. We’re all unsure. And that’s OK. What we can do is focus on the things we can control, and that’s the way our babies feel and the way our homes feel. So turn in, worry about your little family, and know that you are the best thing in the world to them, always.
