My little hero

My hero is you George Archie.

The coronavirus pandemic is difficult for me to understand and wrap my head around. Each week I find myself asking questions, trying to understand it. How we can navigate this time as a family. Keeping you safe. Protecting our family. As a young person I am sure you have many questions. Some you have asked. I’m sure there are more. Many thoughts. You are brilliant. I am so proud of how you have handled this situation. Of how you have adapted. Taking it in your stride, trusting Mummy and Daddy. You have found a new routine. A new ‘temporary’ normal.

I find myself feeling really sad some days. Sad that you are missing out on so much. Routine, School, sports, finishing your Cross Country races that you worked so hard for. Finishing the football league, your sports presentation. I’m sad that you aren’t able to hug Nanny and Grandad, run around with your friends on the playground or roll down the hills at Trentham Gardens. And then you look at me, and I can see that you are OK. You keep on smiling despite all of this.

I’m so proud of you – for learning to ride your bike on the road. For joining in with #pewithjoe each morning. Making me join you as you know I need it as much as you. Understanding when I can’t, or when we have to take a call and leave you with your work. Reminding us each week to clap for the carers. You have worked so hard during this period, never moaning when we have had to carry on with School work through the holidays. My hero is you George Archie.

So much has changed for you. I know how much you miss playing football, training with your team mates, winning matches, losing matches, scoring goals. I know how much you miss watching football with Daddy. Not once have you complained, you have adapted. I salute you. For being so brave. For staying indoors. For never asking if we can travel or visit your favourite places. For enjoying the simple things. For respecting social distancing. And being so understanding. I appreciate that you don’t really understand but still you have respected the rules.

My hero is you George Archie.
