Hey, anyone have any good ideas during this time, maybe some fun things to do with the kids and partner? I work from home already and I don't go out much, so this quarantine hasn't affected me in the ways it's affected other parents.
Any other dads or partners share this same situation? Maybe it's a different situation? Has anyone had to go into the office and now is working from home full time - is it hard for anyone or maybe work has become easier?
Since the kids are home, we've had a lot of time to spend together. I've been spending time with my son doing some coding and gaming. Since he's getting older we're able to connect on a deeper level, which is amazing. My oldest daughter is a bit younger than my son and we still enjoy spending time together. She's all about watching movies and playing games, we also squeeze in a game or 7 of UNO 😆. Seems like a new game every time, hah. My youngest daughter is almost 9 months old and it's amazing to see her grow and develop. She's getting so big and time is just flying by.
Hopefully everyone is doing ok!
I read something that parents were creating at home "movie theaters" where you go to the dollar store buy a bunch of cheap candies then set up a "concession stand" and give the kids fake money they can buy candy and drinks. Then you set up a movie in the living room. Make it a whole experience. That would be a fun family night and a great way to have fun with kids.

That does sound like fun. Reminds of what they do in school with the mini concession stands on movie nights 🍿. I think the kids would like to pretend to purchase treats and popcorn. You could even print out fake money, I'm sure they would really like that.
I feel like I can’t make a mistake as a mom without feeling guilty
Maintaining friendships feels like a full time job lately. Sometimes I question if having friends is worth it sometimes.
i'm so tired of friendships that feel like a game. if you are my friend, be consistent.
