It’s such a whirlwind to even type this, but as we are only on day 2 of being home, I can feel myself getting a little cra- cra and only can imagine what next week will bring.
If you want to have a little bit of peace of mind scroll through this list and grab a few items to have on hand. We have no idea how long all of us will be home with our children. For me I like to have a few backups, especially if we aren’t able to leave our homes for an extended period of time.
The best part is we can order these products from right where we are.
Let us know if there are any other ones to add to the list in the comment section below.
P.S. If you haven’t joined me on TIKTOK and you want a little humor follow me.
