o pozabljivosti

Ko sem prebrala ta članek sem se od srca nasmejala. Kako tudi ne. Sama sem kriva za kar nekaj posebnih prigod v času odkar sem mama. Enkrat ta teden me je prišel hišnik iskat v jutranje varstvo-ker sem pustila ključe v avtu. Enkrat se spomnim da sem šla že kar proti Vrhniki-z malo v avtu. Še k sreci,da sem pri Termopolu lahko že obrnila. “Pregnancy brain” in sedaj “mom brain” zame ni le mit. Velikokrat kaj pozabim. A tolažim se, da je to pač znamenje da imam trenutno ogromno stvari s katerimi žongliram. Moji možgani so kot en multitasking stroj-in potem vedno kaj pade stran. Ker jim pač preveč dogaja, ne premalo.

tole je pa ta članekhttp://www.babble.com/parenting/things-parents-have-forgotten-this-week/

.Everyone talks about pregnancy brain but what they don’t talk about? Mom brain.

Last week I picked my oldest daughter up from school and headed to the grocery store. I usually try to avoid going to the grocery store with all three kids because it’s not easy, but I had no other choice that day.

So we went to the store, packed the cart with necessities, (plus extras that the kids threw in) and headed for the check-out counter. As the cashier rang us up, I reached into my bag for my wallet — only to discover that it wasn’t there.

Yep, I spent over an hour lugging all three kids into the grocery store, dealing with the craziness of actually having said three kids while grocery shopping, and ended up walking out empty handed. I was completely embarrassed and had to drive all of the way home and back to pay for the groceries.

I wish I could tell you that that was it for the week, but my brain failed me yet again when I walked out of the house to take my daughters to school a couple days later. As I got into the car, I realized that I’d walked out without any shoes on. Thankfully I hadn’t left the driveway yet, so I still had time to run in and fix my mistake.

So you see, mom brain is very real. I am constantly forgetting to do things throughout the day or will do something and completely forgot that I’ve done it. I love my kids, but they are officially making me lose my mind!

And I’m not the only one. I asked some other moms to let me know what they’ve forgotten lately due to mom brain, and they make me feel better knowing I’m not the only one that’s losing her marbles (and her wallet).

“In my attempt to get my 4-year-old to pre-K on time with a 2-month-old in tow I got everything ready the night before! Sounds great!

Ran back up to find him watching Dora laying on the couch!!!” — Nadine M.

10 stvari, ki sem si jih naučila na včerajšnji Specialni olimpiadi

1.MEDALJA NI POMEMBNA
En mali, ki je dobil medaljo jo je samo gledal. “Pa kaj je
sedaj to”-si je verjetno mislil. Kdo bi si mislil, da je pač poseben in ne
šteka. Morda pa je res, da je otročje vse to kar se mi “normalni” gremo s športom. On ve, da
je zakon in ne rabi take potrditve.V obliki ene okrogle stvari.
2.MEDALJA JE POMEMBNA
Ena druga oseba pa je od silnega besa, da ni bilo medalje, listek o sodelovanju kar strgala. Iskreno. Mi normalni, bi pač vljudno stali na stopničkah in tiščali jezo v sebi
3.ZAMERE LAHKO POČAKAJO
Z enim od mojih učencev sva bila že par dni na bojni nogi. Vztrajala sem pri neki zahtevi, on pa ni hotel. Zaradi tega je odšel na celodnevno trmarjenje in še včeraj se mi ni hotel opravičiti. Včeraj pa sva bila spet prijatelja. Ker so večje stvari od nesoglasij
4. ČE TI JE DO TEGA DA BI ŠEL NA ODER IN BIL OB NUŠI DERENDA…PAČ GREŠ
To je naredil moj učenec. Rekla sem mu, da gre lahko k učiteljici ki je bila bolj spredaj….Pa je šel kar na oder. Ker si je pač tega zaželel. Jaz si tudi želim poguma, da bi kdaj naredila kaj tako norega.What is the worst that can happen. Nusa derenda je bila pa tudi super!
5.DANCE LIKE NOONE IS WATCHING
Ponavadi se ne spravim brž na plesišče, kaj šele da bi plesala sama. Včeraj pa mi ni bilo nič nerodno in nič nisem bila nesproščena. Who cares. Just dance
6. NISO KOT TINA MAZE
Večina jih je vesela vsake medalje. Nihče ni vihal nosu nad srebrno medaljo. Sreča na njihovih obrazih pa je bila večja od sreče na obrazu Tine Maze. Ni važno koliko imaš, važno je kaj narediš s tem
7. ČE JE DEŽ…PAČ TEČEŠ V DEŽJU
Smo bili mokri? Ja. Nas je zeblo? Ja. Pa smo vseeno preživeli.
8. SPECIALNA OLIMPIADA JE EDINI PRAVI PRIMER OLIMPIADE KOT SO SE JO ŠLI STARI GRKI
Res je važno sodelovati. Važno je dati vse od sebe. Pomembna je res le rekreacija, ne pa pohabljanje sebe za ceno medalj in slave. The way it should be
9.YOUR EXCUSE IS INVALID
Če lahko oni, lahko vsi. Izgovori so ob njihovih naporih neupravičeni. Vsi lahko telovadimo, se rekreiramo. Vsi nekaj že zmoremo. Če nečesa ne moreš, se pač lotiš druge discipline
10. ILKA ŠTUHEC JE SUPER!
Celo dopoldne je delila medalje. In ni jih bilo malo. Veliko športnih uspehov tudi v prihodnje

ustvarjalni dnevnik

Danes sva z malo naredili prstne barve.Deževen dan je kot idealen za takšne projekte. Velko ustvarjalnih navdihov!

Pa še recept
2 žlici sladkorja
5 žlic in 1 žlička moke
480 ml vode
barva za živila

Vse to damo v ponvo in ob segrevanju mešamo. Gotovo je, ko začenja postajati bolj gosto. Potem pripravimo toliko posodic kolikor imamo jedilnih barv. V te posodice vlijemo maso in jedilno barvo. Potem še malo premešamo in stvar je gotova.

Sama sem imela pri tem finega pomočnika. Mala uživa pri mešanju in pretakanju. Barve niso tako intenzivne kot kupljene. A če bo kaj zaslo v usta, ne bo težav.

“If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself.” Albert Einstein
To vedno znova ugotovim ob naših torkovih vrtnarskih dnevih. Čeprav smo sedaj skupaj že celo leto, imajo drugošolci še vedno ogromno vprašanj o mojih “posebnih” otrocih. Kako se učijo? Kaj se učimo? Kako se sporazumevamo? Ali so od rojstva taki? Kako se razumejo med seboj.
Vsakic, čisto vsakič je isto. Ko gremo iz razreda do vrta sem bombardirana z vprašanji. In mi je všeč.Uživam ko vso teorijo 4 let na faksu in izkušnje drugih petih let dela z otroki s posebnimi potrebami podajam na povsem preprost način tem malim radovednežem.
Otroci. Toliko se lahko naučimo od njih.prenos

Jagodna marmelada

Doma narejena marmelada je bila že dolgo na moji to-do listi. A ponavadi je čas za delanje marmelade ravno takrat, ko je največ dela v službi, in je pri nas še košnja. Takrat pa je dela več kot preveč. In poleg tega-motivacije res ni veliko, če lahko isto stvar kupiš za mali denar v trgovini.
Prejšnji teden pa smo imeli v šoli v planu delati marmelado. Učenci so uživali ob rezanju, mešanju. Sama pa sem isto ponovila še doma.Pa dober tek!

JAGODNA MARMELADA
1 kg svežih jagod
900 g sladkorja
2 limoni

Jagode temeljito operemo in jim odstranimo peclje ter zelene dele. Stresemo jih v skledo in prekrijemo s sladkorjem. Skledo pokrijemo in jagode pustimo stati čez noč.

Limoni prerežemo na pol in ju dobro ožamemo. Na kuhalnik pristavimo večjo kozico z dvojnim dnom, v katero stresemo jagode in sladkor. Dodamo limonin sok in na šibki vročini počasi zavremo. Nenehno mešamo, dokler se sladkor ne stopi.

Kuhamo še 10-15 minut, da se marmelada segreje na 105 stopinj Celzija. S površine pobiramo pene, ki so se naredile med kuhanjem. Stopnjo gostote preverimo tako, da damo malo marmelade na dobro ohlajen krožniček, počakamo 3 minute, potem pa jo odrinemo s prstom. Če se naguba, je gotova.

Marmelado odstavimo s kuhalnika in jo hladimo približno 10 minut. Nato jo nadevamo v segrete sterilizirane kozarčke. Napolnimo jih prav do vrha. Še tople neprodušno zapremo in počakamo, da se marmelada dobro ohladi.

Ob primernem trenutku jagodno marmelado ponudimo gostom kot namaz ali prilogo k sladicam.

o tednu ko sem postala feministka

Pred davnimi davnimi leti (ko sem hodila še na faks), sem šla enkrat s prijateljico tudi v poletno šolo. V tetovo, makedonijo. Makedonija, ampak nek albanski okraj.Kakorkoli že. Po predavanjih smo hodli velikokrat na bazen. Tam pa sami moški. Žene pa..pri vsej tisti vročini so bile v avtih. In čakale na svoje moške. Ne spomnim se, če so bili avti v senci ali ne. Pa saj niti ni važno. Še vedno je bilo vroče. Vse moške bi najraje zabrisala iz vode! Kako si drznejo! Prav tako so nam rekli, da naj se raje ženske ne sprehajamo same. Ampak kot introvert sem v polnem kampusu, kjer sem si stanovanje delila še s petimi, potrebovala nekaj minut le zase. Mislila sem si, da se mi sigurno ne more nič zgoditi. Saj smo v Makedoniji, ne v Iraku. Tako sem mirno hodila in malo premišljevala, ko se je kar naenkrat kot muh nateplo okoli mene ene 20 mulcev. Vsi so kar vprek nekaj govorili in ugotovila sem, da imajo morda prav. In da nikakor ne bi hotela živeti kot ženska v taki državi.Feminizem ni alfa in omega. V svojem delovanju je naredil tudi veliko napak. In tu se v nekaterih točkah tudi strinjam z Vodebom. Obenem pa si ne predstavljam življenja,ki bi me čakalo,če bi kaj dejansko nastalo iz moje simpatije z enim albancem na tistem taboru. Verjetno bi le kuhala, imela ene 10 otrok,..in verjetno bi znorela.. Mama in gospodinja to že…ampak sem se toliko drugih stvari.Z vsako teorijo je tako. Bolj ko ne razmišljaš lažje spadaš v eno samo kategorijo. In si pač notri. Bolj ko razmišljaš, več neskladij opaziš..in potem si malo tu in tam.
