Germany is going again in an indirect of lockdown again. The news is not even effecting me: what I learnt in these years is to quickly adapt to new situation and most importance thing enjoy the moment. I am still remember the first time (school vacation may) I was able to sleep again in one hotel. The children were so excited to sleep in a new room, even if we were all together. Or the first time that it was possible to drink a cappuccino in a bar. The smell of coffee and the laugh of the persons: joy was the feeling. Joy to stay together, to speak with another human being.
This feeling is make me feel happy, even if I am going to be isolated again.
In this strange period , a nice activity for your child it could be singing in one online Chor. I like the idea that in a lonely period, children can discover talent and sing together to give a voice to their emotion.
Here in Nuremberg there is a nice Chor Contact. We are like because the teacher is really professional and she is able to take out the better from each child. They are enjoying and they are looking forward for the weekly online appointment.
I personally advice this activity for your child, and after that this period will be pass, your child could be attended the lesson in presence.
I don‘t know you but my fridge is always empty. We are always buying Food, but somehow , maybe due to the fact That we are all at Home we are eating everything. Maybe some tips: could be useful :
Buy online food
use some service how: hello fresh: basically they are delivering to your flat food and receipts
Buy organic food from some farm close to you. You will improve the quality of the food, and they will take to you regularly. I am using Abokiste. I like it , because I can order some meat and vegetables when I need it.
You can feel desperate That you have children at Home and a Full Time Job. Or you can feel bless you, as me. I am so lucky that , despite the Pandemic , I have a job and I have beautiful children , with a lot‘s of new Ideas.
my Living room is during the Morning an Office and during the evening : a Gym or a Cinema .
Doesn‘t matter if the Flat is destroyed, if you are cooking 6 meals pro day; it is just a Little part of your Life and as all in comple of years. You will miss this Phase. So is io to you enjoy it or not.
With the new restrictions, we have the limitations of 15 km . A Good way to find nice paths close to you is : the Komoot application. I like it, because I can set the distance , the timing and I always find some small „thresholds“ close to your door. In Nürnberg , in the erlestegen forest , you can find in the middle of the Forest some Sand Dunes.
Once you arrived there , you can organize with your children a game: children in one Team and adults in another Team. You neeed two walkie – talkie.
the game is consisting with the children that hide them self and the parents that following the indication of them; they are looking for them. It is really funny and in this way you will have the possibility to move a lot.
During the pregnancy, it is really important to keep moving. In this period where the lockdown is limiting activities and the possibility to do sport una gym or in one swimming pool. An alternative , it could be to plan a fix time for a walk close to your flat. I am lucky, I am living close to the river and a forest and in the middle time close to the city center. I have the possibility to walk a lot. Unfortunately sometimes I cannot find the time to schedule a little walk. With homeschooling and nursery close and a normal working day, it is difficult for me during the week find a spot of time for a walk.
A way it could be to stop to work for lunch time and go for a walk for 40 minutes. It is not so much but it is better than nothing. During a walk a really like to listen posdcast. My favourite postcast is one of the Montessori . It give useful tips in order to be a better parent and growing a self confidence child.
A nice way to spend the evening with your children is table games.
if you have children with different ages organise them in group and play with them. It is so nice to play together, to take the opportunity to spend some time with them . In addition you can also organise with them a performance of theatre. You can invent with them a plot. Try couple of time , then draw the tickets and make the presentation for them. It will be a quite and exciting evening .
The lockdown changed our habit. Here you can find some nice tips to celebrate your annniversary:
cook something special for the occasion. Choose your favorite dish: some suggestions could be: pasta with Scampi and pasta with Caviale and pistachios.
take the some time for you, to speak , to massage each other and to cuddle.
As a present choose one course That your partner always wanted to do. Some idea could be : a Comics course, a creative writing course, a paint course. Another possibility is to buy wine degustation.( the bottles will be delivered direct at your place and you can listen the live direct course and learn more about the flavour of the wine.
The secondary school is in Germany is a chose That occurres when the Child is 10 years old. it is a difficult chiuse Because in my opinione the Child are Not enough mature for this choise. By the way since we haven’t the possibility to change it . We should try to adapt and to reach in the best way. First Information That I got and I think it could be useful for you is:
for all the secondary school the amount of Hours for German and Math are the Same. Second some school have more secondary schools: like humanistic, scientific approach and the Final choise about the Type could be choosen at the 6-7th years. This is offer an Advanced, That your Child has more Time taking the decision. Die here below: You can find a List of secondary school in Nürnberg.

I like to try new things with my family. I think it is important to stimulate children with new inputs. It is important to give to your child the opportunity to experiment different activities and put him/her in contact with new people and in a new environment. Last week I tried a course with my family. It was a workshop: Acroyoga for family. 4 Hours of workshop where in a funny way, your children are starting the contact with acroyoga. The environment was really nice, the teachers where great! It was stimulating and funny. I am looking forward for the next event.
