Staying home with my kids is different than I expected. What I expected was a vague thing: crafts, stories, outside play and a clean house.
Instead, I continue to struggle with chaos. My 3 year old hates crafts. Our books spend most of their time on the floor where the 1 year old put them.
So I am learning to celebrate small victories. My cautious 3 year old dressed himself with very specific coaching and ten full minutes of our morning. My 1 year old is singing a song while holding a pillow like a cello because he has seen people play instruments.
Daily life will likely not be what I want it to be, but I will try to celebrate what I can.
