A Daily Schedule for Parents During These Strange Days

Mar 17, 2020

2020 is off to a wild start.

If you’re not in self-isolation yet, you may be soon. You’ll hear things like “flatten the curve” and “social distancing.” If your throat is dry and you cough, people may glare. A lot of people are on edge. Heck, I am on edge.

But now that you’re indoors, it is time to smooth out the edges a little bit. I could give you a million craft and recipe ideas, and I think you’d be happy. But sometimes it’s not that there’s a lack of options, it’s that there’s a lack of a schedule.

And as you probably know, kids like a bit of a routine. So, here’s a guide inspired by Jessica McHale Photography's schedule! Maybe this will fit your life perfectly (I hope), but it will probably require a few tweaks here and there. Whatever your needs, I hope this gets your brain thinking about how to schedule your upcoming days.
