American COVID Diary Quarantine Day 8

March 22, 2020 Tara Eveland 1 min read

Today is day 8 in the American quarantine in my home. The kids are becoming restless. Last night my 4 year old started asking me questions about going places.

He asked to go to about every place he usually goes in his schedule, when getting to the end he asked the most logical of all, “Mom, tomorrow can we go see our friends?” “No baby, we can’t right now”, he was visibly upset, and then he said something that broke my heart. “Everything isn’t closed, you just don’t want us to go anywhere”.

How do I even begin to tackle why he thinks that? What are we going to tell these young kids when this continues? This is America. Right? I mean, the last I checked we are on a fast downward slope… but this new and ever changing America (and world) is something I’m just not sure how to navigate for my children right now.

In world news, it’s still getting worse by the day. I’m going to try to update the numbers at least once a week. It’s totally terrifying to see them continue to rise, even though the world has all but completely shut down.
