She told the site, “For us, it’s been a pleasure. There’s definitely been challenging moments, especially when quarantining first started, but being able to have this time with my children is something I will always treasure.”
Seeing how her two children are so young, Melissa admits that she found it a bit tricky when it came to explaining why the coronavirus quarantine was happening and why everyone had to stay at home.
Melissa continued, “In the beginning, we were able to shelter them from it. We weren’t going anywhere, staying home. Then, they wanted to go to school, to the park, and to see their friends. We did a lot of Zoom calls. I told them that there are germs out there and we don’t want you or anyone else to get sick.
So, we have to stay home and be really careful. When we started driving around and going for walks and started to see people with masks on, it became this thing where they wanted to start wearing masks, too. It’s been an interesting time. It is hard to explain fully sometimes.”
She added, “What’s good is that Olivia and Sophie are close in age. They’d play together before all this started but not to the extent that they do now. They’re gotten super close. When one’s in another room, the other will start looking for the other. It’s so cool to watch. [Laughs] Don’t get me wrong — they go at it sometimes, but they do really love each other.”
