Having a baby is difficult enough, but never in the world I would have thought of raising a child during a pandemic…

It is just making it even more difficult… If we could pause the newborn stage until this mess is over it would be fine, but now that my little guy is 7 months old, introducing the world to him is very difficult… His growing needs to explore is making things challenging… The weather is extremely warm out, so we can’t go for walks…

How can we satisfy his need to explore? There is so much toys you can buy, so many time you can read a book in a day and the space in our house is very limited… pilling tons of toys is not an option. PLUS, too many toy is like not having enough…

I want to show him so much, I want to teach him so much, but how can I do that when we’re confined between the same 4 walls day in and day out…

I planned to take swim lessons with him, but it’s not going to happen until who knows when… The earlyON centres are closed… how can I offer human contact, other than us, to my child? Video calls isn’t really showing the world to him…

It makes me sad to think that things may not become normal for a long time… This is definitely not how I pictured his first year of life to be and how I would spend time with him… I had better stories cut out in my head… it’s very disappointing.
