There is so much to worry about. With a very different school year right around the corner, my daughter Annabelle and I decided to give our little loved ones a place to put their worries. We were inspired by the legend of Guatemalan Worry Dolls, who, according to legend, have the power to take children's whispered worries away when placed under their pillow before sleep.
"What was it like that summer that the whole world shut down?" "What did everyone do?" Children, years and years from now will wonder about Summer 2020. The history books will hold stories about the life we are living right now. It is hard to grasp the enormity of this moment because we are living through it, and sometimes just getting through the day takes all the mental energy we can muster. But this summer is singular (we hope), and if you and your loved ones are healthy, you can try to be in this moment and make it something special.
