Very very sad to listen and watch. He looks like such a cute little kids. And ur right its not normal for kids to be home so long and have no one to play with. I am happy some starts are allowing day camps now in small groups. If they are scared that’s what they should do do small groups so your less likely to catch the virus. It is one thing to stay home for 3 weeks another thing 3 months. And ur right it was probably covid. Very very sad may God bless your family. And help comfort you.

Please read about of viral load effects severity of this virus. The reason less people are dying from covid is because we’ve been social distancing.

I’m sorry about the sun. Mental health is incredibly important. Let’s all show how to love and support each other from a distance, when needed.
We all need to slow the fuck down, value our plants and value our neighbors
