A dispatch from Erin Davis, mom to Asa, 4.
MiniBury: In one word, describe how you’re feeling today.
MiniBury: When are you doing the bulk of your work?
Erin: Very early morning, before 7 a.m.
MiniBury: What is your kid’s relationship with screens these days?
Erin: He watches about the same as before tho we’ve had a few super lazy days in bed with the iPad.
MiniBury: Tell us about a non-screen activity that your kid has enjoyed lately.
Erin: The HOSE! pouring water, making rivers, puddles, dams. It’s a “waste” of water but he loves it.
MiniBury: Has your family celebrated a special occasion during isolation (a birthday, holiday, etc)? How did you make it special?
Erin: We celebrated over zoom a cousin’s birthday. We all wore birthday hats and each household made a cake.
MiniBury: What has been the hardest part of this new, stay-at-home way of life?
Erin: No privacy, personal space
MiniBury: Any small victories lately?
Erin: It’s really a challenge but I’m grateful when we are able to connect within a conflict situation. Right now A is up past his bedtime and refusing to cooperate. But he called me over to point out Venus twinkling through the window. We do love each other even though it’s hard to be alone together all the time.
MiniBury: What song do you have on repeat these days?
Erin: All I listen to are bachelor podcasts and the news.
MiniBury: What are you watching these days?
Erin: Besides Super Wings? Tiger King and the Kardashians.
MiniBury: What’s your favorite thing you’ve cooked, eaten or imbibed in the last month?
Erin: Despite all the Instagram inspo, I have no interest in cooking. I’ve been trying to drink more water?!?!?!!?? Grateful for every Champlain Orchards Empire apple.
