This one’s for the little guys and girls, the little hero’s that we have forgotten to thank.
The children. COVID-19 will forever be part of their childhood growing up and something we did not go through when we were growing up. We forget that their world has changed just as much as ours, and just as suddenly. Children have been indoors since the start of lockdown, no more friends or playdates, no more school lunches or aftercare, no more casual clothes days or cake sale days.
After reading this beautiful message Mira Rajput Kapoor posted on her Instagram page MUMbox would like to also give a shout out to the kids.
She wrote with the post:
“Love them. Hug them. Ask them how they feel and let them cry if they’re not okay. Kiss them. Paint with them and let their clothes and the walls get dirty. Watch their favourite cartoon with them. Snuggle up with them. Give them extra ketchup if they ask for it that day. And when you’re tired after doing the dishes and cooking dinner and they say “Mumma can you play with me” remember this time isn’t forever.
Little hands. Big hearts
