Which Siri do you use (I noticed you said “he”)? I use the Australian male. Bummer about the road rash, I hope you heal quickly.

I also use the Aussie man. I feel no need to boss a woman around and his accent Is cute.

How does it feel having Lucas back in preschool?

It's awesome. Lukas didn't seem particularly unhappy while he was stuck at home with his boring moms but he is now deliriously happy being able to go to Tot Lot again. He loves it there so much that I was really hoping he'd at least get a few more weeks with them and a real goodbye before heading to kindergarten (or not).

As far as the safety factor, it feels safe to us. Cases are low right now in Cambridge and people are still cautious. If the Y, taking care of the kids of essential workers, was able to do so in NYC without any outbreaks, we can for sure do it. We have many of the same precautions as the Y used. The main worry is the teachers infecting each other, and they take masks & distancing seriously.

Those are great precautions. It gives me hope! Glad Lukas got to go back to a place that means so much.

Yes, it's really great! As soon as we're done with hand washing and I hand over his bag of stuff, he runs off to his classroom without a goodbye!

It is a bit of a bummer that we don't get to go inside and hang with the kids at pick up and drop off, but I think that's a worthwhile precaution (protecting the adults from each other). The bigger bummer is that the kids don't get to sit in a teacher's lap for a story or get a hug or really any other kind of contact. One of the other moms is a virologist who is pretty upset at those kinds of rules, and her son is especially confused as to why he can't get hugs, like he's done something wrong. I felt like she validated some of my thoughts about schools for little kids, that the socialization is way more important than the risks, especially if you can protect the adults from each other.

The director is predicting that the guidelines from the Commonwealth will loosen over time as things prove safe, but by then Lukas may already be off to hybrid or virtual kindergarten or whatever they do.

So good to hear! T is supposed to start preschool in Sept sometime. Will cross that bridge when it gets closer, but feels like my comfort depends a lot on how SF is doing with testing and percent positive, etc.

Yeah...the no hugs/laps seems hard :(
