Many of us are struggling with being cooped up with our kids and trying to navigate remote learning, endless requests for snacks and dishes for days. But can you image NOT being able to see your kids during this stressful time?
Bravo’s Andy Cohen had been separated from his son since testing positive for COVID-19 earlier this month. Thankfully, the “Watch What Happens Live” host was able to reunite on Monday with his 1-year-old son, Ben.
Cohen said he sat in his room the whole time “thinking of nothing but seeing him again” and watching Ben’s every move on the nanny cam. Can you imagine?
“I’ve hosted reunions for years, but yesterday’s was the best one yet,” he wrote on Instagram Tuesday morning, sharing a photo from the moment his son saw him again on Monday.
“It was a delightful reunion,” Cohen reported. “I can’t say that it was one for a movie. I joined him playing blocks. He immediately started knocking down what I was making, but he was delighted. His face lit up. He touched me a lot. It was very sweet. I’m still kind of trying to social distance from him as much as I can even though the doctors say it’s OK.”
Cohen says it took about 12 days to work its way through his system, and he treated it with Tylenol, vitamin C, and lots of sleep. “Really an energy sap, a major energy sap,” he said.
Kind of makes us put things in perspective, doesn’t it?
