Parenting during a pandemic is 100% total and complete exhaustion. I also have a special needs child, so this is just beyond anything. It’s hard, and laborious, but also, I’m grateful. We are able to go through the trenches together. I’ve always valued time with my children. I’ve watched their bond grow. I’ve been thankful for every moment. I’m here for them, watching them struggle and grow. It forced us all to slow down, and that has been a gift.
Also, I’m tired. It will be amazing when it is once again safe to be in society.
