Nichole

Solo parenting with a new baby

It’s hard to explain to kids what’s going on in the world today. But Nichole found a creative way for her children to get more comfortable with new, more solitary routines. Learn how she found partnership in parenting at KinderCare, bringing the fun back into daily life for her little ones.

“My 4-year-old, Harry, he calls everything “the sickness.” He didn't understand at first because he couldn't go out and play. So, we kind of switched it from playing and interacting at playgrounds to "Let's go find a little adventure between just the three of us," which he's done really well with.  

Of course, I had my new infant this year, too, so that was a huge growing moment for us. I got to watch my son become a brother, and he just became super excited about him, wanting to show him off to everybody on the phone! 

“After about three weeks of being here, all of our worries were settled.”

KinderCare has been so amazing. After about three weeks of being here, all of our worries were settled. Harry gets to interact with all of his friends. He still gets to do all of his fun activities and play on the playground. Now he takes his brother's temperature, and he thinks that's the funnest thing ever. 

The good part about 2020? I think it really brought us together a lot more. We were forced to spend more time in closer proximity, so I learned a lot more about my children.”
