I know the past few days have been overwhelming for everyone.
It seems like all the news is happening all at once. It's a lot to digest.
I have to admit, I was taken aback when the Ontario government announced it would extend the March Break by two weeks.
Then with the news that my child's daycare was also closing for three weeks, I -- like most parents in the city -- thought to myself "What am I going to do with my kid for three weeks?"
Parents can attest, it is not easy to keep a bored five-year-old from robbing you of your sanity. But instead of focusing on the negative, I think we should look at this extra long March Break as an opportunity to regroup and spend some quality time with our kids.
I don't know about you, but I haven't spent this much time with my son since I returned to work almost five years ago.
It's going to be fun ... right?!
