    Love the patching of pillows from the last post and also those pins- so lovely and practical! I know you took recommendations for posts a while ago, but now that some of us parents are going back to the office or school, I’ve realized my kids have slipped out of the habit of helping with chores. But we def need a team effort now more than ever! I have an almost 7 year old and a 3 year old. Just curious, do your kids do daily chores? What chores have you found appropriate for their ages? Do you ask them to do chores right after school or are they too tired? A post or even some simple suggestions would be so appreciated!

    That New Yorker article was so funny! My favorite part: “You know those videos in which perfectly manicured moms use multicolored batter to make fun cartoon-character pancakes for their delighted children? You don’t know how to do that. Sandwiches”. Ha! 🙂

    The Double Shift episode, linked regarding processing what has happened, oh my goodness. I feel seen. I cried. I work with older boomers and they have had no understanding what parenting has been like in this pandemic. I have a frontline worker as my partner. We will be processing for the foreseeable future. Thank you for these links.
