Day 10 | “Do Not Go Past The Line” Well, looks like the kid can spell no problem. And comprehension? Yep, he’s nailed that one too. All this talk about #socialdistancing and he’s turned the tables. Camp Mom reporting that I’m still alive. The snarkiness has begun. Will I survive quarantine? Stay tuned...😳
Day 9 | Making sure we appreciate this slower pace is making this #socialdistancing a bit easier. The local Cherry Blossom Festival always happens in March and every year we have these big intentions on checking it out and making a day of it. But when we check our calendar, we are already planned out and we never are able to make it. Yesterday, we finally made it to check out the cherry blossoms for the first time. No crowd, easy parking and a close up, unobstructed view of these beautiful trees. Mother Nature sure has her way of soothing your soul and reassuring you that this too, shall pass. Be well, friends. ❤️
Day 7, Things we have learned in quarantine: We are better cookie eaters than we are cookie decorators. 😳 We leave the cookie making and decorating to the pros @greatdanebakingco #cookiesandquarantine We love that our community is supporting our local small businesses during this time. They need our help and we are here and able to help! Friends, are there any local businesses that you are supporting? If you’re in the OC area, tag your favorite small business below and we can add them to our list! Happy Sunday, be well friends. #supportsmallbusiness #supportlocalbusinesses #socialdistancing #lovewhereyoulive #greatdanebakery
TGIF friends, we have made it through our first week of Camp Mom. Needless to say, I deserve this weekend. 💁🏻♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today's virtual spirit week theme is SPORTS APPAREL. We figured we'd highlight all the sports we won't be playing during our time off. 😝In hindsight, I should have really embraced giving my weekends away to Little League...LOL. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On a separate note, I'm thinking of calling these last few photos the Garage Series 🤔 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To all my creative friends, are you finding that you're doing other things to keep creative during these times of isolation? If so, what have you been doing? 💡 #socialdistancing
Camp Mom, Day 4. Current mood 🙌🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you were following my IG/FB Stories yesterday, I'm sad to report the nap DID NOT happen, he went the entire day at full-speed. Can't stop, won't stop...apparently. 😬 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are having a slower than usual morning, but hey, that's okay. We are embracing it all and going with the flow. We are still learning and growing, just in different ways. We'll all be okay, let's remember to stay strong! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our wonderful school is doing a virtual spirit week - today's theme: Yay for Spring! We managed to grab this before the rain started coming down. Not sure if he was dancing for rain here or dancing for no rain? Want to join us? Tag me in your Stories, we'd love to see your Spring spirit. ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On another note...any favorite rainy day activities? I'd love to get some more ideas.
Camp Mom, Day 3 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Reporting in...Mama is still alive and kicking. I am a tad more caffeinated than usual these days, I am drinking straight from the pot (don't judge). With the stress of possible lockdown and information flying past our heads so quickly, you can't keep up, I've been dealing with a bit of insomnia (obvi). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My favorite part of the day at Camp Mom is getting that fresh air while we can! We've opted for the beach lately...super close and lots of space for #socialdistancing - fresh air, sounds of crashing waves, and endless exploring space. It's a balm to all the noise in my head and great for attempting to get a nap out of my energetic almost 7-year-old. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 90 minutes of walking the beach with his favorite, furry friend (not ours, we borrowed him) I heard, Maaaahhhmmmmm, I'm tired. I want to go home... OMG is he going to take a nap!? 🤞🏼I'll post the rest of our day on Stories so stay tuned to see if this elusive nap will happen. Naps are like unicorns in our house. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Friends, how are you doing? ❤️
I’ve stayed away from posting because I’m trying to come to a place where I can begin to comprehend what is going on in our world right now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m now a homeschooling parent and to be honest, I am completely up to the challenge. My clients and all events on my calendar have either been rescheduled or canceled, needless to say I am currently not working. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Grateful and scared. These are my mixed feelings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am forever grateful that my flexible career allows me to be 100% available for my kiddo especially now, while school is closed indefinitely. The small business owner side of me is fearful of this unknown (I have never NOT worked) and am holding onto all the positive vibes that this too shall pass and business will be back to normal soon. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Besides all of that, I just want to put a reminder out into the universe...please, PLEASE remember to be kind to one another. We are all experiencing this together and we are all impacted in some way. These are those times where we need to come together as a community. So please stay home, stay healthy (mentally and physically), check in with each other, be kind and wash those hands! Make sure to take this opportunity to get those extra hugs and cuddles (or elbow high fives), slow down and take it all in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sending good vibes and much love into the universe for us all. ❤️
