Ghid de supravietuire pentru prima zi de scoala

Inceputul de an scolar poate deveni o corvoada pentru fiecare parinte. Inclusiv pentru mine. Sunt mandra de copiii mei, insa trebuie sa recunosc ca prima zi de scoala vine cu foarte multe cereri, cheltuieli si trezit de dimineata.

E valabil si in cazul parintilor care au copii de gradinita. Vad asta la verisoarele mele. Fiecare are cate doua fetite, cu varste intre patru si sase ani (exceptand „fluturasul” mic de un an, care sigur va avea pretentii la fel de mari peste ceva timp). Ei bine, fetitele acestea au un ritual foarte bine stabilit inainte de plecarea la gradinita.

Hanny are sase ani si este foarte preocupata de cum arata. Este o Fecioara perfectionista ( ca si mine ) care are grija de imaginea ei. Nu mananca oriunde si oricum, ceeea ce este foarte bine, tinand cont ca majoritatea problemelor tin de adictia pentru mancarea nesanatoasa.

Recent am cumparat de pe un magazin online cateva caserole foarte practice in care le punem gustarea sanatoasa pentru intreaga zi. Va voi arata in curand, intr-un tutorial video, cum fac acest lucru.

Revenind la Hanny, desi este slabuta, vrea sa poarte numai pantaloni foarte stramti, gen colant, ori fuste scurte (este bine totusi ca sunt in trend pantalonii tricotati si colantii).

La randul ei, Sharry, bruneta cu talente de actrita, este fascinata de Elsa (ca toate de altfel) din „Frozen”. Are cele mai frumoase pijamale pentru gradinita, imprimate cu chipul  Elsei. Ma bucur acum ca brandurile mari au exploatat aceasta latura si au adus personajele din desenele animate mai aproape de copii (sunt desene frumoase, educative).  Imi amintesc cum cautam, in urma cu cativa ani un tricou sau orice accesoriu cu un personaj si nu gaseam nicaieri. La gradinita, Sharry merge numai cu  fuste, dresuri si nelipsitul rucsac cu Elsa.

Ema este „cantareata familiei”. Este fascinata de parul ei. L-a avut lung si l-a mai scurtat intre timp, suficient incat sa ceara in fiecare zi cocuri cu accesorii sclipitoare. Pentru ca, nu-i asa, orice coafura sofisticata o ajuta mai bine la cantat. Si pentru ea fustele sunt un “must have”, insa acestea trebuie sa se invarta perfect atunci cand face piruete.

Ei bine, daca in cazul lor gasim usor haine si accesorii la H&M, Zara, C&A, atunci cand trecem la adolescenti, problemele sunt mai mari: vor haine personalizate si gadgeturi.

Ingrid, fiica mea, spre exemplu, nu vrea sa fie ca toata lumea, tine sa ne diferentieze si sa aiba accesorii cat mai interesante, care au aparut in nu stiu ce videoclipuri. De cate ori plec la Londra imi face o lista de cumparaturi cu produse pe care le-a descoperit pe aplicatia We Heart It.

In februarie, anul acesta, m-am intors de la Londra cu EOS-uri pe diferite nuante si reviste cu One Direction. Luna trecuta mi-a spus ca isi doreste un ghiozdan personalizat cu initialele ei, dar si intr-o combinatie de culori mai speciala. Designerul Ana Parvan mi-a facut aceast mix de roz pudrat cu accente metalice, dar si cu initialele ei, dupa cum se vede, o combinatie nu foarte stridenta, dar cu personalitate.

Si mai avem mania sneackersilor. Cat mai deosebiti, Nike de preferat . Si sa nu ii aiba alti copii. Dificil! V-as fi recunoscatoare daca imi veti da idei care sa nu ma coste o avere…

Dupa ce v-am povestit numai de pretentii de fetite, la polul opus, Harry, baiatul meu,  este total dezinteresat de cum se imbraca. Sunt suficiente niste haine care sa il acopere, de preferat cat mai moi, si incaltamintea sa fie cu un numar mai mare, ca sa nu il atinga la degete.

In schimb, este important sa aiba cel mai recent model de telefon, cele mai cool casti, skateboard, iar lista poate continua. A fost incantat, de exemplu, de rucsacul de la Jumbo, care avea si casti incluse. Si asta chiar daca mai avea doua  perechi de casti acasa, mult mai avansate ca si tehnologie. (Am gasit la Jumbo tot felul de rechizite cool pentru scoala si la un pret accesibil).

Acum ca avem hainele si accesoriile pregatite, ramane sa ne inarmam cu multa rabdare si puterea sa ne trezim dimineata, la prima ora.

Daca aveti copii, va urez un an cu bucurii si multe realizari alaturi de micutii din viata noastra.

Va pup!

Back-to-school Survival Guide

The beginning of the school year can be overwhelming for each parent. Including me. I’m proud of my children, but I must admit that the first day of school comes with a lot of requests, expenses and early waking up.

That’s also true for parents with kindergarden children. I see that at my cousins. Each has two girls, aged from four to six (except the “butterfly” who is one year old, who will certainly be as pretentious as the older ones in a while). Well, these girls have a well established ritual before leaving for kindergarden.

Hanny is six years old and she cares a lot about how she looks like. She is a perfectionist Virgo (like myself) who cares for her image. She doesn’t eat anything anywhere, which is very good, considering that most problems are about addictions with unhealthy food.

We recently bought from an online shop some very practical caserols  in which we put the healthy snacks for the entire day. I will show you soon, in a video tutorial, how we do this.

Back to Hanny, even if she is thin, she only wants to wear tight pants, legging-like, or short skirts (it’s a good thing knitted pants and leggings are trendy).

Sharry, the brunette with acting talent, is fascinated by Elsa (as everybody else) from “Frozen”. She has the nicest pijamas for kindergarden with Elsa’s face. I’m glad that big brands exploited this area and brought cartoon characters closer to children (they are beautiful, educative cartoons). I remember looking for a T-shirt or an accessory with a character some years ago and I couldn’t find anything. At kindergarden, Sharry goes only with skirts, tights and of course, the Elsa backpack.

Ema is the “family singer”. She is fascinated with her hair. She had it long and she cut it meanwhile, enough to request every day buns with shinny accessories. Because, it’s true, a sophisticated hairstyle helps with the singing. For her, skirts are also a “must have”, but they have to spin perfectly when she does a pirouette.

Well, if in their case we can easily find clothes and accessories at H&M, Zara, C&A, when we talk about teenagers, the problems are bigger: they want personalized clothes and gadgets.

Ingrid, my daughter, for example, doesn’t want to be like everybody else, she wants to be different and to have very interesting accessories which appeared in some video clips. Each time I go to London she makes a shopping list with products she discovered on the We Heart It app.

In February, this year, I got back from London with different coloured EOS and One Direction magazines. Last month she told me she wants a backpack personalized with her initials, but also with a special combination of colors. Designer Ana Parvan made this mix of powdered pink with metallic accents, also with her initials, as you can see, a mix that’s not very shrill, but it has personality.

And we also have the sneakers mania. As special as they get, Nike, preferably. And other kinds must not have them. Difficult! I would be grateful if you can give me ideas which will not cost me a fortune…

After I told you about girls’ claims, Harry, my son, on the opposite , is totally careless about how he dresses. Just some clothes to cover him are enough, preferably very soft, and footwear one size bigger, not to touch his toes.

On the other way, it’s important to have the newest type of phone, the coolest headphones, skateboard, and the list can go on. He was thrilled, for example, about the Jumbo backpack, which had headphones included. And that’s beside the fact that he already had two pairs of headphones at home, more advanced technologically. (I found at Jumbo all kinds of cool school supplies and at a good price).

Now that we have our clothes and accessories ready, we need a lot of patience and strength to wake up at an early hour in the morning.

If you have children, I wish you a year full of joys and many accomplishments together with the little ones in your lives.

Kisses!
