This has been one of the craziest weeks of my life. Hunkering down at home. Attempting to do a little schoolwork and keep a semblance of a schedule in play. Trying to work with several new “coworkers” around (aka. tween/teen who turn every room they enter into a disaster area). There’s plenty of humorous posts on social media to remind me we’re not in this alone.
Yet still. It’s hard, isn’t it? Social distancing stinks.
My daughter Annie has had an especially difficult time adjusting to the “new normal.” FaceTime with friends and phone calls with grandma just don’t quite fill the social hole in her very extroverted heart. She misses school. She misses playdates. She really misses her friends.
My guess is many of you have an Annie or two in your house too. Kids miss their conversations and banter with peers just as much as we adults do. So I figured one small way we could help our kids stay connected (and help them practice those writing skills!) would be to send notecards to friends and relatives. You might have to explain what a postage stamp is and teach them how to write an address again, but wouldn’t it be sweet for your friend, or grandma, or favorite aunt to receive a little note in their mailbox?
To help with this project, I designed some little cards, featuring happy little llamas. And of course, I added cheesy little llama sayings like “Sending You A Whole Llama Love” and “Love You a Llama.” (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)
I mean, who doesn’t love a llama, right? And we could all use something lighthearted to keep us smiling these days.
