I can’t get my work done. I have ended up being awake and working until 5am or after for the past two nights. When I try to work, one or both of the girls throws a fit. I try to make a video for my students, someone yells, cries, or talks in the loudest possible voice. I try to type things up, someone needs my laptop, throws a fit, or starts leaning over and banging all the keys. Teachers who are at home trying to take care of their biological kids while also trying to prep, create, and teach their non-biological kiddos/students are having trouble. We are NOT OK

Housework piles up. If we clean then school work piles up. If we pause to take care of our own children, we feel neglectful of our students. If we leave our own children to their own devices, the mom guilt is outrageous. I am sure other essential workers are feeling the same things now as well’ Check on your friends. If you are one of those people, I support you. Let me know if you need a chat.

Stay Safe.

  1. My dear friend, you are doing the best you can in very trying circumstances. I know from chatting with you that you got through that bad day and that you are having a better time now. Please don’t think you have no one to turn to and I will always be here for you.
    Enjoy your weekend.
