Sometimes it’s nice to just share a family update and see how everyone is doing. So I did a little interview with each of my boys to see what they missed since being quarantined, what was their favorite thing about being quarantined, and a few other little questions. Here’s our family update!
A little family update from us
Almost two weeks into quarantine, how is everyone feeling? I have been working hard to make our home life calm and happy, and I wanted to see how the boys have been feeling with all of this. So I did a little kid interview and wanted to share our family update.
There are so many cute, affordable kids clothes at Walmart right now
Also, in these pictures, the boys are wearing some cute tees from Walmart. If your kiddos are in need of new clothes, but budgets are tight, they have so many cute and good quality pieces between $5 and $10.
Sanny LOVES this flip sequins TIGER TEE that’s under $8 and his super COMFY SHORTS ($12 for a 3-pack!), Fos loves his NASA shirts THAT CAME IN A 2-PACK for less than $8 each, and B flipped over his STAR WARS TEE that’s only $10.
I also found myself this cute SHORT SLEEVE HENLEY TEE (perfect for warmer weather) for only $8!
An interview with my kids about our time in quarantine
What do you miss most since being in quarantine?
B (age 9): “I miss my friends, and I really miss being at school. I love school.”
F (age 7): “I miss going to school and seeing my friends.”
S (age 4): “I miss going to the movie theater all the time.” (HA! We have been to like 3 movies in the theater ever with him — I guess they stood out?)
What has been your favorite thing about quarantine so far?
B (age 9): “I love going on long walks, runs, or bike rides every morning with my family, especially since my dad is working from home and can come with us.”
F (age 7): “I love doing math worksheets at home!”
S (age 4): “I love that my brothers are home and we get to watch movies!” (I’m sensing a theme here)
What is something you’d like to do or learn while we’re in quarantine?
B (age 9): “I want to do a really big project. I don’t know what, but something really big and fun. Maybe a science experiment or building something.”
F (age 7): “I want to write a book and draw pictures for it.”
S (age 4): “…….I don’t know.” (His life is basically no different now than it was before)
What’s the first thing you want to do when quarantine is over?
B (age 9): “See my friends!”
F (age 7): “Invite my best friend over and do a LEGO Masters challenge together. B can invite a friend too and we’ll have teams of two and you (Mom) can be the host and give us our challenge. We will have two hours to complete the challenge and it will be epic!”
S (age 4): “Go to a restaurant. Sonic.”
How can you try to stay healthy right now?
B (age 9): “Listen to what health professionals are telling us to do, and wash my hands for at least 20 seconds every time. Plus we need to stay home.”
F (age 7): “Stay home, wash your hands, and don’t cough on people.” Solid advice 😉
S (age 4): “Wash my hands every day!”
Who’s your favorite person in the whole world? (I had to…)
B (age 9): “A tie between Mom and Dad.” (the ultimate people pleaser)
F (age 7): “Mom.”
S (age 4): “Mommy!”
Overall, we’re doing really well. We’re getting outside for fresh air every morning, and since having Philip home with us I’ve felt really safe and happy.
I’ve had moments of heaviness when things feel hard and overwhelming, but I’m feeling grateful to have all of my boys home with me all day and trying to savor this time that I will never have again.
We hope you’re hanging in there! This is an uncertain and tricky time, with jobs being lost, kids being home all day, and lots of unknowns for the immediate future. But we’re grateful for your love and support for our family and we are praying for all of you!
