Kids Write The Darndest Notes When You're On A Work
There are three things we know to be true: 2020 is the worst, Earth is getting warmer at an alarming rate and kids say that darndest things.With most of the world still being in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, parents and children alike have found themselves spending a lot more time together as people have been forced to work from home and schools have shut down.Parenting is hard enough as it is, but with work, school and life all happening in the same place, many parents have had to set new boundaries with their children to make sure they can still get things done (because we know they really need to get done).With some back-to-basics thinking, many parents settled on notes as a form of communication with their children, especially when they’re bogged down with endless video meetings. A sneaky, discreet message scribbled in crayon was the appropriate solution to stopping kids from crashing important meetings and creating the dreaded “oh no my kids are in the background of my live BBC news interview” situation, as we saw recently earlier this year.But when you’re a wee little tot in this big, scary world, anything from not having enough snacks to a little toilet emergency seems like VERY URGENT NEWS that your parents need to know about immediately.During the pandemic, a kid somewhere has made the difficult decision to interrupt mommy or daddy’s very adult Zoom calls with their bosses and co-workers to let them know that yes, unfortunately, they’ve somehow managed to see their brother getting “poopt” in his “pans.”My friend’s daughter just entered his home workspace and wordlessly handed this note to him while he was on a conference call pic.twitter.com/qfd8SY09GP— Helen Rosner (@hels) July 10, 2020After writer Helen Rosner posted her encounter with a cheeky message on Friday, many parents chimed in with their correspondence with children. And apparently, poop is a common thread.I have saved these and am going to use them for embarrassment fuel when my daughters are older. Got this a few years ago during a conference call at home too. She was right...it was not good. pic.twitter.com/18bm1Kg9FQ— Jeff Caldwell (@jeffacaldwell) July 10, 2020When your kids interrupt an important work zoom meeting to pass you this note #workingfromhome#lockdown#zoommeetings#Childrenpic.twitter.com/mkFdELfZtN— Louise Burgess (@LouiseJBurgess) June 18, 2020It’s not all crappy, though.Just turned my notebook page on hour 4.5 of zoom today and found this from my kid. I mean, if I did this she might well not be “there for me”, it’s relatively unlikely in fact - but I love the note and that she thinks of me. pic.twitter.com/aCmmxyZSsM— Osgoode Institute for Feminist Legal Studies (@OsgoodeIFLS) May 29, 2020I’m in zoom meetings nearly all day everyday - so my kids have started sending me secret notes. They’ll slither along the floor like ninjas and reach up to stick them on my laptop. The one before this said “I’m hungry. Feed me” pic.twitter.com/BbYXYzehoJ— Dr Fiona Rawle (@FiRawle) April 9, 2020And sometimes, the kids know you have business to attend to, but that won’t stop them from asking questions about Peppa Pig that can only be answered with some screen time.Note slipped to me during a morning zoom meeting. Smart kid. pic.twitter.com/nTJud02wVq— Elizabeth Goodyear-Grant (@eplusgg) April 28, 2020Yikes! I thought it was going to say poop, not paint. Here’s what my 11-year old wrote on my notepad while I was on a work call (Clyde is the peanut, for some reason). pic.twitter.com/ylbwlyi5Gr— Hazel
