This was a looooooong week.
Our kiddo was exposed to COVID at daycare and we had to quarantine for 10 days... while working full-time. It was not great.
Early on in the week, we made the decision that screen time rules would go out the window. Our kiddo was thrilled that she got to watch her two favorite movies on repeat all week. I have now heard The Secret Life of Pets and The Secret Life of Pets 2 nearly a dozen times each.
Part of my mom guilt rages at this but - you know what - it's fine.
We are now two years into this pandemic and weeks like this are just about survival. There's only so much you can do when you have to work and have a kid who can't yet fully entertain themselves. It was much better for everyone's productivity and mental health to just let her happily watch and provide running commentary on the "doggies!"
What rules do you break to make it through rough weeks?
