I made a functioning violin with a tissue box and empty roll towel paper. Cut a whole the size of diameter of roll, on the tall top of tissue box and push in roll. Put a few rubber bands around the length of the box and strum a tune!

When your kid who fights you every day about going to playgroup randomly says, “I want Morah.”

When you’ve got pretzels all over your bedroom after you just cleaned for Pesach. So you vacuum on Monday, then a repeat on Tuesday so you vacuum again till Wednesday...

When your printer runs out of ink from all the 100s of coloring sheets you printed.

When you homeschool ends 30 minutes after you started because your student wasn’t listening and your left talking to the walls...

I have lots more.

When the little ones start crying and you finally figure out that they're upset because they were actually listening along to the sad story on Wonderwords or Pirchei or whatever Hotline (I lose track!) that older dd called. You know, the hotline that she calls all the time anyway and the younger kids totally tune out or ignore.

(Anonymous because I've shared this with tons of people in real life cuz the little ones are LITTLE.)

When your autistic kid who will usually happily spend his entire life on a computer alone starts begging you to let him out so he can see actual people.


LOL I have so many memes about my autistic child that I can't share with anyone.

"He's always practiced social distancing! He'll probably be the one who will never get covid!"
