The little mister was in a really good mood yesterday. Compensating first the fact that he’s losing all his hair! He’s also plumped up quite a bit and is now over 10 pounds!

Throwing around my doctorate in education for a sec: I want all you parents to know that *literally no human beings ever in history* have been asked to educate kids & do adult work simultaneously the way you are now. The scientific term for what you're facing is "batshit insane."

Once upon a time, there was a man in a parachute, floating slowly to the ground. It was a frightening time. He had not intended to be falling to the ground from a great height. But here he was. "Good thing you have that parachute," he was told. "Don't take it off."

A family friend who lived through WWII in Japan just reminded me that seeing images of empty shelves in the grocery store can be very triggering for those who have lived through times of extreme scarcity. This includes folks who have come from areas of conflict. 1/6

We’re now officially mobile! Nowhere to go, given that we’re on self-quarantine to keep safe, but at least he can wander the apartment with me.

I keep insisting on having the best education minister. Maybe one with a background in education, or who at least attended public schools. So far no luck. 🤷🏾‍♂️ The irony of questioning the qualification of teachers for their jobs! 😂
