Coronavirus UK: Mommy in tears over neighbor’s note about locked out son


Lauren McCabe self-isolates with son because of asthma and weak immune system after catching shingles

A single mother isolating herself with her son during the lockout passed a note in her door asking her to keep him silent.

Lauren McCabe, 26, was asked to “shorten the run” because she woke up the neighbors early in the morning.

The note said, “We think you have a young child and it must be difficult to entertain him in an apartment.

“Can we please ask you to try to shorten the race because it is very strong. Especially early in the morning when it wakes us up most of the time. Thank you in advance.’

The 26-year-old woman, who suffers from asthma and a weak immune system after catching shingles, was so devastated that she wrote a note on behalf of her two-year-old son Leo.

He said, “I don’t go to the nursery anymore or I don’t see the people I used to hang out with anymore. My mom is not doing very well, she said that we have to stay at home until she is better.

“My mom doesn’t want me to feel anxious or upset about these changes in my usual routine. So she finds ways to make me feel happy, like running in my living room, dancing in my living room, playing with my favorite toys in my living room.

“I’m sorry you find it difficult. I just want my mom to be better and things to be normal. “

Lauren, a freelance makeup artist, cried after reading the original note, which was pushed through the door of her Birmingham apartment.

Lauren’s mother Sarah Burgess said, “I didn’t see her because she is isolated, but she called me sobbing, saying,” Mom, how am I supposed to keep him quiet?

“They should have discovered the background before sending this note. “

Sarah said that Leo was a “typical toddler” but that he was not noisy and that he was easily soothed. And she said the argument was the last thing the couple needed as they tried to keep their spirits up.

“At the moment, Lauren and Leo are stuck in the apartment,” she said. “I buy all their food for them and leave it outside their door, and the only time they can go out is to sit on the lawn in front of the block.”
