Parents, you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.

Or just as likely, we’ve got questions and you’ve got answers.

Does the pandemic have you like this?

Feeling like you took a basketball to the face?




You're not alone.

But do you know what makes everything better?

Your mama.

Your father.

Your siblings.

Your kids.

Your friends.

Lean into and on those close to you during this time.

Maybe don't reaaaaaalllyyyy lean on them, the experts would say, but you know what I mean.

Family makes everything better --

being with 'em,

texting with 'em,


talking with 'em.

And so does fresh air and cheez-its.

I'm letting my monkeys lean in and on me as much as they need these next few weeks, and if you need that same attention, know that this and many virtual communities are here for you to do just that.

Sending everyone prayers and positive thoughts that we and those we love stay safe, happy, and sane in the coming days, weeks, and months.
