Parents, you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.

Or just as likely, we’ve got questions and you’ve got answers.

Is it over yet?

Covid?

'Cause I'm over it.

I'm so done with social distancing,

and dying for

more hugs,

more awkward, unmasked, impromptu convos with those I know and those I don’t,

more concerts,

more meals...INSIDE,

more vacations,

more playdates,

more events to attend,

a return for my kids to their brick and mortar,

a return for my loves to things they love, like dance and baseball and other group activities.

But Covid is not over yet.

And so,

I guess,

slightly reluctantly but consciously willingly,

I'll remember that

it's not over just because I'm over it.

There's a light at the end of the tunnel, but until I can see it, I've got to continue to make some of my own -- every day -- and be grateful I've got four humans in my life who make that so gosh darn easy when I sit down and really think about it.
