20 COVID-19 Memes to make you smile

COVID-19 and being in lockdown in no laughing matter, but like fellow blogger, Liesl quoted in her #LieslMidweekMoments post: … “South Africans are like those kids at the back of the class always making jokes of everything.” This is so true and indeed we are a strange nation. I am not referring here to our immense cultural diversity, but rather our curious “never say die” mentality.

The benefits of Laughing Therapy is widely published and practised and so we decided to share some of our top picks relating to parenting, lockdown, and human behaviour.

If you have more to share feel free to post them in comments under the Facebook post right at the bottom of this blog.

Kids, discipline and routine

I was so chuffed with my morning routine and how well it worked until I spoke to my sister who now has a teen in the house. The star chart I suggested below just didn’t cut it. Fortunately, Tybott and his mom reached me and I could happily recommend this parenting style to my sister. Oh, and remember you can download our daily planner HERE.

#TanyasTales #Saturday This week, I thought I would share some tips on how we manage to both work and play with the little ones. Routine really DOES HELP to manage expectations for both adults and kids. I have to confess it took about an hour of planning (no kids near) to get hubby's schedule going. With these COVID19 related changes, I have decided to embrace this quieter time and try my 8-13 routine again. I will update you on what IS working at this stage. My kids are aged 5 and 7 if you want to see if your kids can perhaps relate. 1) We start early. 5am Meditation - My Hubby and I get up at 5, shower, then we read Bible, chat, reflect and pray together. #RULE- kids are only allowed in once the door is open. We are diligent in opening it at 6am. 2) 6am - 8am Morning Routine. Hubby goes off to do his work and we cuddle for a while and then start the day. Kids start their morning routine. They get rewarded with a STAR chart for doing these 7 things before 8am. 50 STARS = a new book. They need to do this independently: have breakfast (at the table) brush teeth & hair get dressed make the bed unpack the dishwasher pack snack for 10.45am I exercise and then reward them immediately 3) Free Play 8am-9.45 + I work. they get their own snacks and eat it. 4) 10 - 10:45 Illustrator lessons for kids online. My friend told me about the illustration lessons someone from Durbanville offers every day at 10am. Inbox me for the Facebook LIVE link, they do amazing drawings! 5) 10.45 Tea and Chat time. By now I take a 15-20 minute break to give feedback on their drawings, snack together and perhaps play a game of Rummy. Then they go outside to play ball or build whatever they feel like building & I have another hour to work. Thereafter we all lunch together and play for a while. 100% time IN. I may have more tips for the afternoon. We stick to 19.30 storytime and bedtime at 20:00 so hubby and I can have some quality time together before we are off to bed. I have not implemented Tracey's "Idea of the day" yet. We have a daily planner available on the blog. Again you can inbox me for the printable. It helps A LOT! Stay strong, stay safe, reflect often.

Work from home

Technology made it possible for us to work from home, and so we are very happy to be able to still contribute to society. Working from home should be no issue, well unless you have kids!

Shopping before lockdown memes

I'm not even sure if this is a joke. Seriously? What is it with all the toilet paper? Maybe it is just a physical manifestation of the "poo-poo" people are in! (on a more serious note there is an interesting psychological theory behind it. Because it is a large item it as a knock-on effect, one person sees a large purchase (say 18 rolls), then the next feel the urge to buy more, the next sees the shelve emptying and before you know it, you have 144 rolls that won't even fit in your car!
