It’s been a day!

Slice of Life Day 15

I am participating in the twowritingteacher.org Slice of Life Challenge where I write each day for the month of March. This year my three-year old daughter (now 4 year-old) and I are writing collaboratively. Feel free to follow along our month-long writing journey!

*Today we found out our schools and daycares were shutting down but teachers still had to report to work on Monday. Needless to say it has been a stressful day trying to figure out what we can do with our daughter when we don’t have any family nearby. Please excuse my post being a little bit late and without Marlowe writing. She wrote today but I haven’t had time to capture it on here. I felt more in the mood for a poem*

 

Year to year

things change

Sometimes

month to month

When it becomes

week to week

it is overwhelming

Lately

 day to day

Today

minute to minute

If overwhelming is taken

then what word do we use?

inundated?

swamped?

drowning?

 

All I can do is…

BREATHE

  1. I can feel how tense you are because I feel that way too. I called an ice cream shop Isabelle asked my mom to take her to. When I asked if they were open for sit-down customers, she said, “for the moment.” Literally, an hour later our Governor announced that he was shutting down all non-essential businesses. So, I get it. Things are changing rapidly.

    I’m sorry you have to go in and find care for Marlowe so quickly. I cannot even imagine!

    • Thanks for your kind words Stacey! As soon as we figured out a plan in the morning, Marlowe immediately threw up! haha! I wished she threw up last night before I frantically figured everything out! So it made the decision easy, my husband and I each took a half day to be with her! Funny how everything happens at the same time. We just have to find the humour in it to get through!
