Reasons to be Grateful: People are nice to my son

I’m sorry to have been quiet for that last couple of months, I have started back at work and am experiencing the lockdown child care crunch that will be familiar to many parents.

This won’t be a long post, but I wanted to share this picture of my son. He likes to stand in on the window sill in our front room and bang on the window as people pass by. Obviously he is still too little to stand up there on his own so I am often sitting there with him, just behind the curtain. I don’t think passers by can see me, but they do see him and they frequently wave. This makes him very happy, and he bangs on the window a bit more and shouts.

Parenting a young child during lockdown hasn’t been easy. There aren’t many places I can take him at the moment and he seldom sees anyone other than me and my partner. Hopefully all this will change soon, and he can get on with making friends and meeting people outside. In the mean time I am really grateful to the people who wave at him. It makes his morning or his afternoon to get a wave.

Thank you for reading. I also make art and films. You can see my films at my YouTube channel here. You can see things with my designs on at my shop here. Could even treat yourself if you wanted to. Just saying. If buying art is not your thing, but you would like to support what you see I also have a Patreon Page here.

  1. Bless your boy. There were already many reasons to worry being a parent, then Covid-19 came along and doubled our worries.
    I was worried sick my 3 year old would become to shy to play with other kids once she started in pre-school a few weeks ago. Shes also spent the last year with just me and her dad. But I was actually surprised at how quickly shes gotten into the swing of things again. She’s loving pre-school.
    Its amazing how resilient they are at this age.

    • That’s really helpful to hear. At the moment he’s a confident little boy and I think he would benefit from spending time with other babies. I’m looking forward to being able to make some play dates for him 🙂 thank you for the follow. Have followed back 🙂
