There’s a good chance IF they have school this fall, Addie will have to wear a mask. The masks I’ve made her all tie in the back and I am quite sure those ties would be an invitation for second graders, especially boys, to untie it and I’m not sure she can re-tie them behind her head. Can you imagine a teacher having to deal with untied masks all day?
I made some that have elastic that goes behind the ears but she liked the ones better with the elastic that goes behind her head. I think I got her about a dozen made. That will be enough that Nicole isn’t having to wash them so often.
They’re so much quicker to make without having to make the ties. I’m going to make a few for myself and use shoe laces for the ties and have them so I only have one bow to tie.
I’m about convinced that we’ll be wearing masks for a long time! Not trying to be political, so please no politics, but in the beginning we were told not to wear masks, they might make things worse. Even though I understand that mainly they wanted us not using masks that medical personnel needed, it seems like saying masks could make things worse . . doesn’t make sense.
Then, there were so many professionals saying cloth masks do no good. Now . . we can’t go anywhere without them. I’m wearing one because I’d rather be safe than sorry but every time I put it on, the entire situation frustrates me.
