“It’s been tough so far being a mother juggling work-from-home (WFH) and home-based learning (HBL), and I’m sure many other mothers out there feel the same. I take comfort in the little things, being able to be with my children and seeing how they have become independen­t learners as they tackle HBL. My partner and I have a group chat with some of the wish families from Make-A-Wish Singapore whom we are closer to, and do check in with them from time to time. During this period, we find ourselves worrying and thinking of our wish children who are more vulnerable, and pray that they are all keeping well and safe. Meanwhile, I’ve also been staying positive and busy through writing and illustrati­ng a third children’s picture book on Covid-19 for the EtonHouse Community Fund. This time, it is centred on contact tracing and the tireless work that contact tracers do. Amongst the myriad of adult-centred informatio­n, I hope to provide families a resource to help children make sense of what is happening around them, and most importantl­y, to let them know that they are safe, and that there are people in our community doing good work to ensure we brave through this storm.”
