Because 2020, my 7yo is doing remote school shooter drills
The way we’ve got things set up for the forced remote everything is we converted the dining room into a 3 desk station where my two kids and wife work. I’ve got my own space upstairs which holy crap I can’t imagine working next to the kids honestly.
The general situation is I get up and from 7-9:30ish deal with getting the childfolk up, fed, detangled, in a couple of classes. For the first part of the morning they’re the only two in the dining room, I do some work on my phone or laptop mostly organizing what I’m going to respond to as my laptop keyboard and me don’t get along.
The 7yo’s usually on a demand to stay in the dining room, but as everyone lost their headphones today somehow and the 5yo’s class was absurdly loud I let the 7yo go and take a class in her bedroom. We don’t generally let that happen as she tends to not pay a lot of attention to begin with and even less if she’s not got a human to be over her, but we had a basement flood I needed to deal with today, it was loud, it was special circumstances.
When I got back up and checked on her she’s in a virtual shelter in place instruction… school shooter drill… how to follow the teacher and where to go for crazy people coming into the school.
