La mia (mezza giornata..poche ore..tre ore) al asilo



E stata una bellissima esperienza per me come mamma di Vittoria a vedere lei relazionare con altri bimbi, pure gli altri bimbi come sono diventati piu svelte e obedienti o molto vivaci specie quando hanno saputo di poter andare a giocare nel giardino, dove tutti hanno giocato con le bolle di sapone (di maestra Alda), con scivolo,palle colorate,cavalucci e carrelline sotto gli attenti occhi delle maestre Alda, Susana Sandra e Adriana. Sono rimasta impressionata nel fatto che i bimbi capiscono molto di piu che noi (o almeno io) pensiamo. Per esempio a seguire le istruzioni delle maestre, a memorizzare non soltanto una canzoncina, ma parecchi canzoncine-compressi i gesti delle mani e corpo, e parole (anche se non sono tanto comprensibile, dato il modo in cui parlano) Non ero cosciente del fatto che i bimbi al loro tenerissima eta' sono gia capaci a prendere picolle responsabilita' come apparecchiare la tavola (Vittoria ha apparecchiato per 4 bimbi con l'aiuto della maestra Susana). O a mettere apposto i giocatoli.. Hanno dei diversi giochi che aiutano a sviluppare le capacita' mentale, sociale e associativo dei nostri bimbi. Tutte le maestre e personale del nido sono simpatici e pazienti-anche coi genitori, coi bimbi. Mi domando come fanno le maestre ad acudire sei bimbi (ogni maestra ) tra cambiare pannolini, insegnarli, farli mangiare, e seguirli cosi non si fanno male da soli? L'altra cosa in cui sono rimasta meravigliata e che i bimbi sono affezionati delle loro maestre. E ovvio che per le maestre i bimbi non sono oggetti di lavoro ma come se fossero i loro propri figli.La maestra Susana mi ha pure insegnato il trucco di far mangiare Vittoria in modo piu facile e divertente,cioe' giocare con lei mentre lei mangia e ho provato efficace. Detto tutto questo vogliamo mandare un grandissimo gratitudine e complimenti di cuore a tutte le maestre (Susana, Alda, MAria Grazia, Sandra e Adriana) e, le personale (pure del sezione grandi) e la dirittrice del Arcobaleno che rendono piu brillanti i nostri figli. Grazie infinite e DIO vi benedica TUTTI VOI!

Jobhunting

I'm supposed to have my job interview today at 12 nn, in a prestigious law office, which called me 2 days ago as a response to the job ad I placed in the local ads newspaper. Today I had to request them to resched the interview due to a minor domestic incident. Job-working again after giving birth.Career growth and earning stimulates me a lot. Prior to pregnancy I was a hotel receptionist in a 3 star hotel located right in the tourist belt area Spanish Steps. Then eventually GOD Blessed us with a wonderful child Vittoria Emmanuela and I had to opt to stay with her fulltime at least for some period of her growing time, which I consider a very vital investment, honing her character even at her very delicate innocent age. It's been a little more than 2 years
since I stopped working and now I've started jobhunting again and, it seems almost every month a job interview comes my path.But for one reason or another (be it conflict of sched-I prefer to work parttime in the morning, or the distance from our place-I have to consider the travel time fr the workplace til Vittoria's daycare center, or I dont speak fluent italian, or due to racial discrimination,or that I dont meet the age requirement-I'm not as young as they expect their employees to be,also I have some little apprehensions about being away from Vittoria having been used to be physically near her everyday from the day she was born) well, the interview gets aborted. I have made numerous attempts for jobs that are completely unknown to me (Programme Assistant, Information Manager etc.) And by GOD's grace some prestigious international organizations got interested enough to fix an appointment for my interview. I felt most sorry for having lost the opportunity to work for UK representative office to FAO-a UN arm due to my inavailability for interview.But As it is I am an incurable optimist, and believer in my GOD. HE has guided all my goings, and HE has answered many of my prayers.I still believe hopefully this week my GOD will finally release the bestest job for me here in ROme.ANd for this I praise and thank my GOD in advance.So be it.

At the park


video

Vittoria's official bigtime at the park bigger than the rest we've visited.She enjoyed crazy the pigeons, ducks, dogs other kids etc. of course the company of our co-nationals having picnic with grand culinary showoffs. We stayed from 11 am til 4p under the friendly sun (which might have been the first real friendly weather since the end of winter recently) In short it was a grand day above all for Vittoria Emmanuela, as well as Lala, Adrian and me and the rest of parkstrollers.
