These Twins Had A Quarantine Birthday Party Designed To Ease Their Fears of COVID-19
We’re all facing a world very different than the one we were so familiar with just a few months ago. Still, Karo Arana Soto wanted to make sure that the second birthday of her two twins Mateo and Matías was just as special as it was last year when they had it. While unable to throw a big bash for her twins Zoto was still able to put on a party that was pretty memorable and impressive.
It also had a theme was pretty apt for the current times.
For her sons’ big birthday, Zoto threw a COVID-19- themed party.
To celebrate their big day, Zoto threw a smaller scale party complete with bouncers, music, games, gifts, piñata, sweets, cake, and pizza.”
“Every birthday of José Ramon [the 4-year-old brother of Mateo and Matías] and the twins celebrate with a small party with family and close friends, this year for obvious reasons we could not all be together, so we decided to make their party with the COVID theme,” Zoto explained in an interview with mitú. “So when they get older see the photos and know why we were alone on his 2nd birthday, also this pandemic only talks about the bad things that happen and what can happen, so we try to ‘disguise fears’ and turn them into a piñata and a cake, my children had a lot of fun.”
Speaking about the current situation and how her children are affecting it, Zoto says that she’s spending her days trying to make her kids feel safe.
“It’s a situation that is forcing us as parents to be more creative and patient with children, in a normal situation, the twins go to a kindergarten, José Ramon to school and parents to work, we are altogether only in the afternoon and weekends, my husband continues to work normally. I’m an independent professional, so I was able to work the home office to be able to attend to my children, it is beautiful to be with them,” Zoto told us. “I never get bored but I never rest, we had a lot of fun but also we get stressed and we all get mad at everyone, there are toys all over the house, there is never silence and twins are in the process of leaving the diaper, imagine it … hahaha, it’s crazy! My 3 children are at a very demanding age of time and attention, so it has not been easy at all.”
So far, Zoto says that her kids are actually enjoying their time in quarantine.
After all, their days are filled with a similar structure they had at school but with a lot more playtime.
I think it is wonderful for them, even when they’re so young, to get up early, go to school, and kindergarten to follow a discipline and routine are part of some of their ‘authorities’ but in quarantine,” she explained. “They get up at home a little later, they play all day, school classes and homework are only for a while and the rest of the day we play, make camps, bathe in the pool, make movies, paint and whoever we can think of, sometimes we The ideas to entertain them end and the stress begins, I think that for them the real problem will be when the quarantine ends.”
