It’s the last week of this pandemic school year and I am filled with so many mixed emotions. I thought I’d be thrilled and relieved that this crazy remote learning is over (hopefully). I did not expect to find myself feeling nostalgic about all the great things that this unique remote school year brought into our lives. Don’t get me wrong, I can’t wait for Lulu to get back to school full time in August. And we definitely all feel a little bit stir crazy with three of us learning and working from home (thank goodness for Booboo still attending in-person preschool!).

Being a working mom when the kids are sick is a huge challenge. To be honest, it was one of my biggest worries when I was going back to work after being a stay at home mom for three years. When your kid is unwell, it is a million times harder to find alternatives to staying home. And of course with two kids, we get double the illnesses.
