Driving to run errands for a sick kid today I realized one of the things I miss most about the pre-COVID routine is the drive to and from school with the boys.
Every morning I’d drop them off, every evening I’d pick them up. It’s about 10 minutes one way but we fill that time talking about our days or listening to music or telling jokes or stories and just generally goofing off.
Listening to music in particular was a big part of it. It was a great opportunity for us to explore Spotify together or just let them shout out what they want to hear and sing along.
We do that a little time to time in the house, but it’s not that isolated slice of time to just chat or listen or sing.
