Quarantine Questions

"Mom?"

Poke
poke
poke.

"Mom?
Can the
Easter
Bunny
still
come?

I mean,
with the virus...

can the
Easter 
Bunny 
still
come?

He'll be 

six

feet

away

from

us

because

we

will

be

asleep.




Right?"

Tiny voice, big eyes.
My little boy,
all swagger and 
"Dude, that's epic!"
one minute,
and worried about
the Easter Bunny the next.

So big, and so little,
and so lost in
our new world.
Looking for something 
to hang hope on.

"Yes, Sweetie.
Bunnies are not quarantined. The
Easter
Bunny
will
still
come."

"Mom?"

"Mom – maybe we should
wipe the basket handle off? 
Just in case?"

And my heart breaks.

  1. His innocence is precious! That last part was heartbreaking though. What a change we’ve all had in our lives. I’m glad you can bring some normalcy back though. Even if it’s just for a bit. 🙂

    1. I don’t think it is just him struggling, because The New York Times had an official article today about the Easter Bunny having been checked and he is healthy and safe and all Easter treats are prepared in a safe and social distancing environment. Plus, bunnies cannot catch the disease.
