Working From Home Mom Pins Up Perfect Note To Her Children
Working from home mom speaks for parents across the country
Working from home mom life is not what anyone imagined a few short weeks ago.
As one brilliant post put it, “Our employers expect us to work. Our children’s schools expect us to teach. And our children expect us to entertain them.”
Of course, it’s not just moms who are facing this challenge.
Dads–I feel you, too.
This note caught my attention because it just so gets to the point.
- In the wash
- I don’t know what’s for dinner
- In your bedroom
- Piece of fruit
Of course, the heading says it all, “Mum is in a meeting 9:30-11. Do not enter!”
I also love this Facebook post talking about the 5 different types of coronavirus moms. As if we all weren’t comparing ourselves to each other before all this started!
• The Kates she described as “well-educated, professional mothers” who learned about COVID-19 on their morning commutes and had a contingency plan for childcare in place before they ever canceled schools.
• The Chelseas are stay-at-home moms with multiple children. “Calm and rational,” they have their homes already stocked with enough food and other essentials to last several weeks.
• The Margarets just realized yesterday that this might mean she has to “stay at home with her children for weeks on end without any adult conversation.” These women are afraid for their mental stability. “Disney Plus, wine and grocery delivery services will be her only hope.”
• The Lilys are homeschoolers who also work part time and are using the virus to promote “self-empowerment” and her business on social media, “currently googling how to make organic hand sanitizer for her non-vaccinated, vegetarian children,” the blogger wrote.
• And then she described The Stacys, who “don’t “give a s**t about the threat of COVID-19 and will continue on with life as if everything were normal.”
