7 Ways We’re Managing Quarantine Life with a Newborn

#1: Look at it like a video game.

#2: Be explicit about each other’s goals.

#3: Troubleshoot problems like a technician.

#4: Check in at the end of each day.

To start each day, we ask each other: “What would you like to accomplish today? After dinner, we ask, “How did things go today?”

#5: Make weekends stand out from weekdays.

#6: Acknowledge each other’s shifting roles.

#7: Find ways to add a little levity.
