Had a very emotional video call with the kids tonight. Before this quarantine, we sometimes sang songs together after dinner and while Anya’s at Oxygen. Tonight I figured I’d play the guitar and they would sing on the other end. It started out all good. I was just playing the guitar and the kids were goofing around. Serena likes the Lost Boy song by Ruth B. We started to sing that one. Just as we were getting into the chorus, Serena started crying, and then Griffin started crying, and then I started crying. It was an emotional moment for us. Then I tried to play something upbeat. It didn’t work. I eventually put the guitar away and made a few corny jokes with the kids. Then everyone was happy again.
Boy, am I looking forward to being done with this quarantine.
