As a mom-of-4-illustrator, I kept a daily diary of drawings of these unique and strange quarantine-days. I guess many will recognize scenes from their own life with toddlers and kids... By popular demand, I translated my drawings in English.
It started all in March when our country went to lockdown. I totally freaked out by the thought that schools would be closed for a long time. For 8 weeks, I have 4 toddlers (Bob, Morris, and twins Pepa and Colette) with a full agenda of deadlines as a writer and illustrator of children’s books. But I’m still alive, my hair looks wild, I took some pounds and must admit I had more then a few goods laughs with my bunch.
From day one of this quarantine, I made a daily drawing at the breakfast table. A lot of it really happened (like the FaceTime incident with the teacher!), some of it was just thoughts that crossed my mind. I posted them on my Instagram and got like tons of messages of working moms and dads who recognized themselves in the drawings. So I kept going. I hope you enjoy it too!
