Facebook (Good) Memories – Day 21

There are some things I don’t like about Facebook, but one thing I really appreciate is the Memories feature.  This week, a memory popped up from March 2020 – the beginning of our quarantine after schools had closed.  

Once school closed, I moved in with my daughter’s family to form our “bubble” during quarantine.  As horrible as the pandemic has been, this was one positive effect that I wouldn’t have had without quarantine.  We were able to spend so much time together and it really formed a stronger bond between us all.  One thing I was able to do was spend the days with my 3-year old granddaughter while my daughter was working from home.  

I tried to find activities and crafts to keep her entertained and learning since her daycare was closed.  This picture popped up in my Facebook memories.  We stapled and decorated 2 toilet paper tubes to make binoculars to go birdwatching.  She was so thrilled with the idea of bird watching that it led to my buying her a real pair of binoculars for her birthday in May.  She still brings them every time we take a walk.  

Good memories!

  1. The facebook memory feature is one of my favorite things about facebook, too! I love seeing photos of my girls as babies and for videos to pop up of things they used to say. I’m so glad you were able to have this time with your family.

  2. What a special time you had with her and at such a fun age, too! I’m noticing more and more memories of the beginning of quarantine and they make me smile more than I expected!

  3. The only reason I am still on Facebook is those darn memories! I forget all the funny stuff my kids said and I always look for the memories of my dad! If I could find a way for those to pop up on my phone without being on Facebook, I would love it!

  4. Yes, facebook memories are great, but unfortunately your photos didn’t come up on my page so I have to use my imagination. I have made binoculars like that though, so I have a fair idea. What fun and that she loves them so much!
