A few weeks ago, my girls started school and my little guy went to school and started kindergarten. This is their third week at school.
My girls had to get used to going to school again. My little guy had getting used to being at school all together. I had to get into the routine of making lunches, taking to the bus, pick ups from the bus, and everything that comes with having kids at school.
On top of that there are the concerns involved with this COVID going on. Making sure my kids have masks and wear them at school, when needed. Wearing masks at the bus. Making sure they have hand sanitizer. Just a few things to make sure they have as well.
Thankfully, the last few weeks have gone well for the most part. They have been pretty good about getting up, going to school and such. I was worried about being able to focus on lunches and such, but it has been going fairly well for me and I’m happy about how it has been going.
Sure, there have been mornings when one of my kids didn’t want to go to school, which I can understand. They have been off for 6 months. My son isn’t used to school. And I can remember not wanting to go to school some days, when I was a kid. So, I can understand and relate. However, they haven’t given me too much issue with going, especially once we got to the bus.
I know it’s hard, but at the end of the day, they have to and should go to school, unless they’re really sick with fever or something, or have an appointment. I wouldn’t be doing them any favour by letting them stay home whenever they wanted. As hard as it is, I know it’s for the best. I know we’ll get through this.
