Day 3: Also referred to as the COVID-19 blues

Two out of every three mothers or primary caregivers will suffer the COVID-19 blues which typically occurs between the third and tenth days - usually after the kids’ schools have been closed, all holiday care, camps, clubs, child care cancelled, your office WFH (that’s work from home, but some may have read it as WTF - same same) policy has been implemented and you are struggling with the basic needs of keeping the kids fed at regular intervals throughout the day, and a seemingly endless supply of dirty cups and plates that appear disproportionate to the amount of food actually consumed.
