3/16/2020 – Day One of Quarantine

March 17, 2020 | new | No Comments

I am “lucky” enough to work for a company that is allowing us to work from home during this madness, so I don’t have to worry about finances on top of everything else.

Here’s what my day looked like:

8:00am – Start work

8:30am – Littles wake up. They’re hungry. Didn’t I just feed them yesterday???

8:45am – “Mommy, are you done working yet?” “No, I just started.” “Oh. Ok.”

9:00am – “Can I watch TV?” “Sure, but be quiet while mommy’s working, ok?”

9:15am – “Are you done working NOW??” “Still no.” “Fine.” *storms off

10:00am – “I’m hungry.” (AGAIN?!?)

11:00am – “I’m bored.” *tells older child to read to the younger one

Noon – “I’m hungry.” (OMG!!!)

1:00pm – “I’m bored. Can I play on your laptop??” “Ugh. Here’s a video about giraffes. Learn something.” “OOOH I like giraffes!”

2:00pm – “Aren’t you done working yet??” “Still no.” *rolls eyes

3:00pm – “Can I watch you work?” “Sure, but I don’t know why… this is boring.”

3:05pm – “I’m bored.” “Told you so.”

3:10pm – “Can I use my play-doh?” “Only if your brother helps you get set up.”

3:12pm – “Bubba won’t help me.” “Well, then you need to find something else to do.”

3:13pm – “I don’t know what to do.” “Ugh. Here’s some educational worksheets I printed for you.” “Yay!!”

3:45pm – “I’m hungry”

Do you see why moms always look like they’ve escaped from a mental facility????

I'm a working mom with 2 littles: my daughter is 5 and my son is 13. They are my whole life, but I often wonder if they will also be the death of me. We live with their dad and grandpa, and have 2 cats, 2 ferrets, and a gecko.
We're just trying to scrape by in this thing called life, and hopefully provide a few laughs in the meantime.
