COVID-19 for us has been a life-altering moment for most of us. As difficult and painful as the current situation has been, we all have had valuable lessons to learn from this pandemic. As parents, our protective instincts take over. Where we would have allowed certain transgressions in our everyday ‘normal’ lives, at a sudden looming armageddon, we become knights in shining armor to protect our little ones.
We are so used to living in the fast track lane, that slowing down was not considered an option. It was seen as a punishment. Humanity is given a time-out and put in the naughty corner indefinitely. I was trying to get the time to run as fast as I could. The truth is, time ran its own sweet languorous course, I was left exasperated, exhausted.
