I'd imagine there will be a lot of parents losing their minds in the coming weeks as they have been relieved of their work duties for the time being and the kids are home from school or day care. For those of us who stay home home full time anyway, no big change. Saw this in my news feed this morning. Some advice from a SAHD for those doing it now on a temporary basis:

Pfft. Noob. Every little snowflake out there with a kid in preschool is out of their godforsaken mind over if they're worried about academics in fricking preschool.

True. But some good tips, especially #7. We will be making the most out of our cable and Netflix subscriptions! Screen time recommendations be damned!

I just got through Prime's show "The Hunters" with Al Pacino. I highly recommend a hard pass on this series. It's crap. It's rated at 3-1/2 stars and IMO that's being highly generous.

Our new young neighbors celebrated their twins' second birthday in the yard yesterday. They've had friends and family "visit" from the curb or at the end of the driveway and it gave me an idea...

Easter is this Sunday and we're essentially half a family; one kid is out of the house, as are three surviving grandparents. The other day I delivered an Easter basket for the displaced kid but my mother is getting antsy. My wife suggested we invite my mother and celebrate with us in the yard (at a distance.) What do you guys think?

As long as it's at a distance and no one needs to use the bathroom in your house.

Yesterday was a windows open , screen door open type of day. One of the ladies we know from the STEM group we visit said some crazy SOB charged in on her family and she had to chase them with the shotgun.

I wish I'd known about this when my mentally challenged son wasn't as tall as I am!
