What I’ve Learned From 48 hrs. of Social Distancing

Lessons from a mom who like everyone else is just tryna make it out here!

Hey y’all! We made it through day two of social distancing! How are you feeling? I hope you and your kids and your family are still hanging in there! I am going to keep this post brief because we all have a lot going on. But I wanted to share a few lessons that I have learned since being home for the majority of the last 48hrs. Social distancing is a little more intense than I imagined it would be. But there have been some good things happening in my house as a result!

Lesson #1

I really like to socialize. Like way more than I thought. I like to categorize myself as an introvert but I honestly I’m already mourning the loss of play dates, meet-ups and our usual errands. Thank goodness for social media! I have loved connecting with new and old friends!

Lesson #2

I’m not really good at setting a schedule. I was really determined to set a schedule for how our day was going to run! I even shared on IG that I would post a sample schedule. Well guess what? We are just going with the flow! I am used to staying at home with my son as I work part-time. But we usually spend most of our time exploring

Lesson #3

It is a privilege to work in healthcare. No matter what happens in the world. I will still be able to go to work and take care of others. I have the gift of witnessing new life and working with women and their brand new babies! So despite the appeal that working from home has, I am thankful that I can go to work and witness the miracle of life.

Lesson #4

Spending time with my spouse during the day is AH-Mazin! I thought it would be hard for the 3 of us to share 1,000 sq.ft. all-day-long but honestly its really refreshing to see my hubby all day long!
