Babysitting is the highlight of my day
April 14, 2020
Quarantine for me has been quite honestly unbearable. Having to stay inside and not being allowed to see anyone but family is driving me insane and the loads of school work isn’t making it any easier. The only thing that is getting me through this hard time are the days that I babysit. Babysitting is really nice for me because it gives me a chance to get out of my daily routine of waking up at 10 am, doing e-learning, then going back to sleep.
When I babysit I usually get up at 7 am so I have enough time to shower, eat breakfast, get some coffee, and be at their house by around 8 am. Then when I get there, I start to work on e-learning while the kids finish eating breakfast and get ready for the rest of the day. The kids usually finish their e-learning around 12 pm so they eat lunch while I finish up whatever I’m working on.
For the rest of the day, I try to hang out with them. We usually go outside to play or we play a game on the Switch, which they usually enjoy. Their parents get home around 3:30 pm and then I go home.
In all honesty, the rest of my day is pretty boring. I usually finish my e-learning, then go outside and play with my dogs. After that, I eat dinner and just relax for the rest of the night.
Quarantine has been a really difficult time for myself and others. What makes it even more difficult is seeing other people hanging out and disregarding the shelter-in-place order. It is so important to just stay at home during this uncertain time, no matter how hard it is. The truth is: if you want to have a summer, stay at home.
