They dont know the covid-19 adapted life we live.
They wake up and play and enjoy their summer just as they should
They go to stores. They enjoyed vacation. they see family
They do not know of the riots and germs that have turned our happy life into a sheltered situation
We keep our children happy and unaware because they should not carry that weight on their shoulders
They do not need the stress of the world on them
My oldest asks daily when he can return to school and friends
I get excited for him. We buy new backpacks and school supplies..
He doesn't need to know that kindergarten isnt going to be the same as it was for the children before him
He needs to know itll be fun and he will learn and play just as he should
I fear not the tragedies in the world around me. Instead I fear the impact it has on the happiness and innocence of my children.
My children will continue to enjoy their adolescence because they simply do not know
