Do you guys remember it? It’s almost hard to. Life before COVID was so different.
I would give anything to be the woman in this picture pushing this cart again. It was taken on February 15, 2020 and I can remember this moment so vividly. Charlotte and I were leaving Wegmans and I had bought her this balloon to try and keep her entertained. She was at the age where getting through the store was a struggle. I remember it was after Valentine’s Day and I grabbed the balloon thinking it would be on sale but it wasn’t. What I would give to have a dumb trivial annoyance like that again!
Two days before the Wegmans trip, Charlotte and I were flying back from house hunting in Florida and Charlotte was leaning over our seat on the plane playing with the little boy sitting behind her. What I would give to see her be carefree and playing like this again! No masks on this flight. No open middle seats. No fear. Just strangers on a plane letting their kids play with each other. What I would give to be that parent without worry again!
If we somehow make it back to the normal we once knew, I promise to never take these moments for granted. I think we can all appreciate that!
I miss the memories from life before COVID.
