Summer

We asked Olivia what season we have right now and she as usual didn’t want to answer straight away, so we asked Dominik what he thought about it. He looked and said:“Summer”. Olivia was quite angry :) Olivia now enjoys when she can help me. She always says:“You know, I’ll help you Mom, so you have more time to play with us.” And she makes a breakfast or dinner table ready, she prepares all ingredients for cooking and she chops and mix them when needed.

Dominik is two

So Dominik is two years old. He still loves tractors, trains and excavators. He likes when he has time to do his own things and no one disturbs him but he also started to play with Olivia and he follows her in everything what she does. Dominik learned to jump into the swimming pool, he is talking more and more.

Two-week holiday

One week off in the kindergarden and then one more in the nursery and so we went for holidays to grandparents. The children played on all playgrounds, they ate peas, currants, cherries and strawberries all the time. Dominik used to “drive” the tractor in a barn every day. After two weeks, they asked when we would go home and when we were arriving to our home town, Dominik screamed in the car “hoooome”.

Last events

Our Easter was one very enjoyable extended weekend full of trips. Only weather could have been warmer and less rainy. However, we visited the Wildpark in Poing and we palyed on the playgrounds. A week later, Olivia was still talking about Ivka and how she loves her and she asked when we would visit her again. This year we joined a local tradition and were looking for Easter eggs. “Mami, the easter bunny was here” was the reaction when she found the cooked eggs in the flower pots and the garden hidden by the grandparents.

In common and different

They are really different, but one thing they have in common, each pursues their own interests and follows them. Olivia is like a manager and her assertiveness has no boundaries. When I want to pick her up from the kindergarten, she first goes to all teachers to say goodbye with a handshake (I do not know where does it come from). The best is when we are talking about how to do something, she listens to everything and then she says, “You know what we do it this way …”.

Olivia is 4 years old

Olivia talked about her birthday since summer. She couldn’t wait till she would put four candles on her birthday cake, light them and blow them out. We celebrated together, with her friends, with the grandparents and finally in the kindergarten with cakes. Luckily, everyone has birthday only once a year :). Olivia got Cubetto (she calls him Kubo), a small robot to learn programming and improve spatial orientation in a funny way.

When there is a lot of snow

We planned to go somewhere for the winter holidays, but it snowed so much that we changed our minds. We are every day in our garden playing with shovels or sledding on the nearby hill. And I started introducing Olivia to skiing. First, in the garden just to learn balance on her own and then on the nearby slopes, but they seemed to be too steep. Then my friend recommended me a small ski resort for children.

Gym

I always try to take my children outside in any weather and every time I say we are going out they both rush to the door. But sometimes I just want to be at home, it’s raining, cold or dark early outside and then it is good to have a place where they can spend all their excess energy. So we made a gym in the basement. They can throw a ball there, slide, climb, boulder and chase each other.

Birds and ladybugs

A new school year started and Olivia finally became a kindergarten kid. Although she long longed for this moment, it took her a while to get used to a greater number of children and related noise, but now she is going to the kindergarten with enthusiasm, she brings home lots of drawings every day and she tells us what everything they did there. She also likes the music education they have.

Forest playground

In a small town Pöring, near to us, there is a large playground on the edge of the forest. I like it very much because it’s all in a pleasant shade of trees and you can play there even when it’s hot outside or raining lightly. There is something for everyone and it’s a favorite place for birthday parties or just for a picnic. The best thing is that the children go home completely tired every time:)
