‘Daddy, will I ever get to hug mommy again?
At first I could tell him that it would be soon, now I’m not so sure.
I couldn’t be more proud of my wife,
But the days are so long without her...
And my son is feeling it most of all.
He misses his friends and teachers...
But most of all, he wants his mom back.
Every day he asks why.
And every day my heart breaks for him.
How can I explain to someone so small,
she’s on the COVID frontlines.
She can't come home anymore, it's not safe.
His own mom, too dangerous to hug.
I hold him tight and try to be enough
Try to distract him, keep him busy
Then I remember
The park is closed…
His birthday party is cancelled…
He wears a mask just to ride his scooter...
Nothing is normal, and he’s terrified.
I wasn’t able to be everything he needed, all by myself.
At 6am- trying to face another day- I called a friend for backup.
He assured me, we’re all feeling it.
Children’s minds are racing with fears that everyone they love will get sick and die...
“Daddy, I don’t want mommy to get sick! I need her!”
My friend recommended a children’s book that teaches music.
“How would that help?” I wasn’t convinced.
He told me his kids started making music to express their deepest feelings and fill long days with hope and joy.
Music was the missing piece he never knew his kids needed so much until now.
I decided to give the book a try, even though I’d never played an instrument. What could I lose?
I found it on Barnes and Noble, but saw shipping would take days. Then I searched it on Amazon, but shipping was just as long.
Finally, I found the publisher’s website and contacted them to find the book quicker.
The author herself responded, and told me she signs & mails hardcovers directly every day with free shipping using sterile technique.
And I was beyond excited to see I could download the digital materials instantly.
She’d already dropped the prices to the lowest they’ve ever been, because she wants every child to play music during these days at home.
Best of all- she’s giving free eBooks to families of hospital workers.
She understands- she’s living away from her husband who’s a doctor treating patients with COVID-19.
It warmed my heart to talk to someone who gets it.
When I showed my son the book, it was nothing short of magic...
The illustrations are brilliant and he couldn’t look away.
Wow! He was soaking up music knowledge like a sponge!
After we read the book, he asked to see the workbook and printables.
We used an online app to start making music.
We played all day, talking about the notes and making up songs. Simple songs with sad melodies, and ones that sounded brave.
And by the time we looked up, it was time for mommy’s visit through the window.
My wife could tell right away my son was filled with hope.
And that lifted her spirits too.
There are no words to express how glad I am to have found this book.
And I just want to say thank you to the author who made this possible for our family.
While you’re staying safe at home, I 100% recommend you buy this book to open up a world of togetherness through music.’
