COVID and Parenting, Send Soup

In a way, I think it made it easier when I myself got sick, too, because then I could just lie down and stay stoned on NyQuil while the hours rolled on by, instead of being fully conscious of the filthy house and all the parenting and lost productivity. Getting sick was inevitable, obviously. I couldn’t quarantine myself from my sick kids when they needed mama snuggles, so instead, I got sneezed and coughed on about a million times, and one kid huffed directly onto my cheek, ‘MOM, DOES MY NOSE BREATH FEEL HOT TO YOU, TOO? IT FEELS REAL HOT COMING OUT OF ME.”
