I honestly thought the kids would be thrilled. No school for two weeks and it’s not even vacation!
But my 9-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son have not been immune to the recent talk — everywhere — about coronavirus.
They both immediately started crying. Real tears.
At first, I wasn’t sure whether they were joking, but I quickly realized reality had hit them. School closing made the virus more real. Closer to home, literally.
