Mom is 2 weeks post second dose. Mom and kids took full advantage yesterday.
They literally, leaned in.
#iamgrateful and #iamthankful for the opportunity.
I shared this in a comment below but just sharing this made me think: it’s amazing how adjusted and acclimated we’ve become to COVID protocols.
It only became apparent yesterday. When we saw some normalcy returning. Like hugs.
Our instincts were to distance, mask, etc.
We had to actively focus on giving hugs, breaking instincts, to take advantage of being around mom post vaccine.
It’s a powerful reminder of the impact the past year has had on our kids. 20-25% of Jaanu’s life has been behind COVID protocols. 1/3-1/2 of his conscious life.
It’s like me having lived this way for almost 25 years, or everything post college.
I’m floored by this reality they have.
