Hi friends! I am aware that Coronavirus is a controversial topic. This article is short and sweet about my personal thoughts on my family's preparation in case we face home quarantine. I have received several direct messages from mamas asking what in the world we are doing to prepare so here it goes!
There are articles popping up everywhere about the virus and I am not talking about that here. The controversy is much too political for my taste. I like to keep most things bright and light! However this is worth talking about on my relatable lifestyle blog. :) If you want to read more about the virus I actually suggest this article by Lissa Rankin, MD. It bought me a ton of peace.

Let's talk home quarantine thoughts and family preparation.
From what I gather, the idea of a home quarantine will come without much notice (if it even happens) so officials are telling us don't be afraid but be prepared by stocking up on home goods and food. I honestly didn't take this too seriously until I started seeing my neighbors preparing, my Instagram community messaging me about it asking what we are doing to stay ahead of the curve and then this morning our local chamber posted an alert. Suggesting that the homes in our community should be prepared just like when we are about to hunker down for a 10+ day winter snow storm. Like many of you, I too have heard several stories about this situation. Who knows what is true, so here's the deal...I am making sure we are prepared for a short notice home quarantine because well I am a wife and a mother to two little boys. The reason why I am doing it ahead of time is because I don't want the shelves at the grocery to drop in stock if/when a quarantine is suddenly at large. That would be inconvenient to have to travel with two little kids to find supplies not to mention the point of a quarantine is to stay put. I'd like to limit exposure if we get to this point. Here is a list of the things we have stocked up on or that I have read would be a good idea to stock up on incase a home quarantine occurs in your area:
