Staying connected with daycare families is a daily occurrence: either through text, phone calls, or emails. It is also exciting to exchange photos. Knowing that someone is thinking about you is an uplifting feeling. At the risk of sounding demanding, sometimes we expect more. This past week, this young man and his mother paid a visit.

He came with a specially made batch of homemade sugar cookies. To his excitement, I returned the gesture with a busy bag with a variety of open-ended materials and a belated birthday gift. Social distancing is providing physical safety at the expense of emotional hardship.
