“I understand you all are coming from a place of safety,” the Bachelor alum went on to write on her Story. “Those videos of Brooks swinging are from weeks ago. I just thought they could make some people smile today. I haven’t even left my house except to go get the mail at our mailbox in 10 days. I encourage the message, but kindness is always nice too.”

The former reality star, who also shares her 2-year-old daughter, Emerson, with her husband, Tanner Tolbert, has been documenting her family’s self-quarantine via social media, from mirror selfies to movie recommendations.

Roper jokingly referred to her kids as her “coworkers,” writing via Instagram on Wednesday, March 18: “[She] INSISTS on watching me take a shower. She then hops in the shower fully clothed screaming ‘I’m all wet!’ over and over, but doing nothing to change her situation. … Then my two other coworkers decide to come watch me, staring at me for the rest of my shower, because apparently everyone is bored and I’m in charge of entertainment.”
