What Are the Hardest, Best, and Most Surprising Parts of Parenting in Quarantine?
The hardest part of parenting during quarantine is having patience and navigating the uncertainty. We are with our kids 24/7 and trying to manage every little detail of their day when we are used to school and office hours. Taking those 2 minutes to myself to take a few deep breaths before getting back to my kids has been helpful.
The best part of parenting during quarantine has been all of this time I've gotten to spend with my kids and my family. I was able to take a step back, slow down and really appreciate and cherish these moments with my girls at this age. I'm so grateful for this time.
The most surprising thing has been the attachment the kids have developed to Brandon and I during this time. Sleep time has become more difficult, leaving us for time with the grandparents or anything else has been really difficult as well. I'm slowly trying to figure out how I'm going to wean them off spending 24/7 with us.
