Yesterday we had our first outing (besides the ones we just stay in the car) in over 2 months. We really needed it. The past few weeks has been really hitting the boys and I hard. We’ve had meltdowns, outbursts, out of normal behavior, and tears countless times. Last week was the hardest. I broke down and cried a few days in a row because of how the boys were acting, how I knew it was from the pandemic, how (as much as they love each other) they were getting on each other’s nerves sometimes, and how I was feeling the same way: overwhelmed, sad, tired, and missing normalcy. Having a newborn and husband that works so much limits our activities. I was feeling sad to see that Sunday was set to rain all day, but I’m so grateful it didn’t and gave us this beautiful day. I can’t explain how happy I felt to see the boys faces lit up with pure excitement! We spent the beautiful day soaking up the sun and water and maintained our social distancing. It wasn’t back to normal, but just the right taste of normalcy that we needed.
