You did it! You made it to Friday! Except... it doesn't really hold the same thrill now that every day looks more or less the same, does it? Hang in there, Mama! You've got this.
Welcome to day four!
A Lesson for the Kids:
Anyone up for a family date night? Today, try bringing the whole (immediate) family into the kitchen. Use your favorite spaghetti recipe and have the kids measure ingredients. To add an extra layer of challenge: double it! Make the kids figure out how to double a fraction. Boom: mini math lesson tied in with a vital life-skill: making good Italian food.
Throw on Lady and the Tramp while you eat. I promise it's allowed! There are no rules right now. Nobody knows what's happening. We're in uncharted waters here, Mama. A movie with dinner? The kids will love it. And, better yet, be occupied for a blissful one hour and 16 minutes.
Looks for Mom:

I am a firm believer that a shimmery dress makes everything better. Kids having a meltdown because they've been cooped up? Shimmery dress! Grading a homeschool assignment? Shimmery dress! Just ran out of wine? Shimmery... wait. No, that won't help.
If dresses aren't you're thing, don't worry! We also have a shimmery blazer! Need a parent-teacher conference? Throw this on, plop in front of a mirror, and go over every detail as to why your students refuse to listen to you.
Have you ever felt like you need eight hands? Well, adding a stretchy belt might be your newest "mom trick." Tuck extra pencils, some wipes, and a small bottle of Purell right into that belt. Mamas, I'm only half kidding.
As soon as this quarantine lifts, you're bound to spend hours upon hours outside. Beaches? Theme parks? All of the things. You'll need to have a trusty pair of shades ready to go!
More gold! More shimmer! Why not? Homeschool like a boss in this surprisingly soft blazer that looks just as good with leggings as slacks.
These boots were made for... sanitizing every surface in your home? Sure! Why not?
Is the CDC yelling at you to stop touching your face? Yes, they are. Don't worry! We are here to help with that seemingly impossible task. A new headband may not solve all your problems, but it will help this one.
What's a shimmery gold outfit without the earrings to match? We don't want to find out, that's for sure!
