Dara TX, USA

As a mom obsessed with post-it notes, calendars, and routine life looks like a mess right now, but a beautiful mess might I add. The first week or so was really rough trying to juggle the demands of a 3-year-old and the needs of all my clients. But through this mess, I have found the beauty in time with my son, self-care, and just slowing down. As long as I keep positive and brightness in my house, little darkness from what’s going on can come in! Follow your child’s interest, allow them to teach you things, and create positive memories that they can look back on not all the negative surrounded by this hard time.

Yoga! Get your kids in the kitchen, making fun snacks or helping with dinner. Play with them but also teach them to be independent! Snack limit: 3!!!!

Stay positive!

I’m a single mom juggling co-parenting, home school, toddler entertainment, and a full-time job, now working from home. Trying to balance it all while being grateful for my family’s health and safety. I don’t know the answer but I do know, we’re in a crisis and need to give ourselves grace. We’re in this together and will get through this one day at a time!

Boundaries - workspace vs personal space - what are your personal and professional boundaries? It’s been so helpful to set those and practice them consciously. If I block an hour off my work calendar to help with home school, I focus on homeschool and don’t look at emails, etc.

As an Instructional Coach, I usually work from home once a week; however, with the current crisis, I am working from home every day. I also have my 2-year-old son at home from daycare because sending him out into the world while I am less at risk would be very selfish and not befitting as a mom. My husband, his dad, still goes to work but for most of the day, he is here with us.

It is extremely difficult to try to complete tasks for my job each day while balancing being a mom and wife during the pandemic. I believe that I started to have mini anxiety attacks, so I knew what had to be done. First, and foremost, all of the negativity that I was following on social media had to be deleted. I know that the media has a job to do, but I had to unfollow them due to seeing the majority of the articles focusing on the negative. I started to read the Book of Promises and continued to listen to Steven Furtick's sermons on Facebook. Doing those things definitely helped to ease my anxiety level.

Additionally, in-between time, I introduced my son to fun websites and activities to keep him entertained as well as Amazon shop. I also brainstorm ways to support Cliqq and continue our tradition of having family time on the weekends.

You really want to speak, think, read, and just do positive things that will enhance others as well as yourself.

Stay safe, and let's be encouraged.

Basically, doing all of the things mentioned earlier and sticking to schedules. I am not a fan of going outside but have found that if we give him a little outside time in our backyard, it calms him and makes him happy. If he is happy, our job is easy. 😆

Life for us hasn't changed much since February 4th. That is the day our little preemie came home from the hospital. Given she is at higher risk for RSV, we made the decision to self-isolate for her and only leave the house for her appointments, which were every couple of days at the start. From March 12 we have not left the house. We spend the day watching TV, playing with FX's farm animals and drums (his faves at the moment), cooking and just being together as a family. We stay home to keep our babies safe.

FX is still too young to realize we are stuck at home. As long as we are with him and he has his dogs, nothing else matters.

Stay safe everyone! God bless!

A lot more learning, games, and exercises suitable for her 6 months and a lot more time to read to her which I enjoy.

 

 

Desiree Jones – CA, USA

My life along with my children have come to a halt! Work for me is closed. I’m a self-employed Nail Technician for the past 20 years. School is closed and will most likely not open until the new school year in August. Soccer has been put on hold. My daughter is on a travel team and spring league was just about to start. I must add that SOCCER IS LIFE and I’m having total withdrawals! I’ve worked since I was 17 and even after having my children I have only taken off 3 weeks of work and was back soon after due to being self-employed. I will admit this slower pace has been kind of nice and it has given me a lot of quality time with my 17-month-old daughter but it has also made me realize how much I love working.

I have definitely spent a lot more time in the kitchen than I thought I would. I have taken this opportunity to spend quality time baking and cooking with my teenage daughter.

Through all of this, I’m just grateful that my family and I are safe and healthy. I just pray that this will all be over soon and that it doesn’t affect too many families!
