Day In The Life: Juvilynn Arbuthnot

Written by Erin Feher

One of our very favorite things to do here at MOTHER is to give our readers a deep and honest look into the lives of other mothers around the world through our weekly profiles. But the COVID-19 pandemic has many people (including us!) inside our homes and unable to venture out. Still we know—perhaps now more than ever—families want to see how others are getting through their days now that schooling, childcare, and privacy have been all but been eliminated. So, we are proud to introduce a brand new series, A Day In The Life, in which women graciously and honestly let us into their lives for an entire day, from eyes open to lights out. First up is Juvilynn Arbuthnot, a stenographer and mom to 4 children—ranging from 9 years to 8 months. She and her blended brood recently moved into a new home in Marin, California, and in addition to the run-of-the-mill challenges that come with a new house and a new baby, she opens up about dealing with pandemic-induced anxiety, stir-crazy kids, and a whole lot of unknowns. Click through the full slideshow below to see what a day in the life is like for Juvilynn right now.

    Such a true, open description of what another mother across the world is feeling – and I feel sometimes the same all the way in Europe though. Beautiful house and her style was gorgeous too which was nice to focus on! Great article
