It’s a big day in our house today. Our eldest kid goes back to pre-school.

Sure, we’re nervous—there’s still a lot of COVID-19 cases—but locally, things are much better than the national picture. Our nerves were totally and rightfully put down the priority list as our kid jumped out of bed this morning and sang “I’m going back to pre-school” over-and-over. She’s struggled through this third lockdown.

To all the other parents who have homeschooled or have had to juggle childcare and demanding jobs: you’re amazing and as you’ll no doubt, understandably, be nervous today—try to enjoy it, too.
