Hello, everyone! This outlet to speak with you and let you get to know us is feeling a lot more “normal” since so many of us are working through our social distancing and quarantine / isolations right now.
All three of us have now been home for two straight work weeks. We are so lucky to have jobs that allow us to work from our homes, and we have pretty well incorporated trading off for free play and learning time with Alex. We are also spending a lot of time doing video chats with family and friends to get some child-to-child interaction. But Alex has taken to ending all of his virtual conversations with, “I miss you!” And truly, we do miss being in physical contact with our local and distance loved ones.
Other fun things we've been working on now that we have nearly unlimited family time are different plays on hairstyles for Alex! Typically we see his barber every 2-3 weeks, but now we're stuck with all salons and barbershops shut down; so I tried some simple, entry-level protective styles! This photo is from the morning after, we're going to need a satin pillowcase if we decide to venture into cornrows or dreds!
We hope that you are safe, healthy, and have a supportive outlet!
