April was by far one of the most challenging months I have ever lived through as a parent. From having to cancel my daughter’s 5th birthday to attempting to do school at home and not being able to see friends, there have been a lot of ups and downs. I’ve been surviving on way too much caffeine, music to block out background noise while I work, books to escape reality, frequent texting and video chats with family and friends, and the occasional glass of wine.
Some days are worse than others, but I’m happy to say that most days fall on the better end of the spectrum. Thankfully, my husband has been home to take some of the mental load off of me, and Alexis has been a real trooper.
As we head into the unofficial start of summer, we’re all faced with uncertainty. Will everyone be able to return to work? Will there be Memorial Day and 4th of July celebrations? What about summer camps and family vacations? I don’t have the answers to those questions, but I can assure you that Wiregrass Parents will be here to help you navigate whatever the future holds.
You may have noticed last month that we changed things up with our distribution. With so many places being closed to the public, we migrated the bulk of our distribution to direct mail. We targeted some of the biggest family neighborhoods in Dothan and Enterprise. If you weren’t on that mailing route, don’t worry! You can still get a copy of the May issue. at the downtown and Westgate branches of the Dothan-Houston County Library System, Enterprise Public Library, Daleville Public Library, and Ozark-Dale County Library. All you have to do is request a copy when you reserve your books.
