    @aimee_1972 I was once landed in a situation where I had to talk to a class of six year olds in a school in Britain about Nepal. I was very scared as I was used to teaching children much older and was worried that they wouldn't understand what I wanted to say to them. Needless to say, the lesson passed in a flash. Some of them even came up after the class and gave me a hug. Then I was very scared as rules say that adults should not physically touch children. I was told it was fine though, as it wasn't me touching them, but it was the children touching me.
  • Life before children and with children are completely different ways of life (in Serbian: „Kao Bog i šeširdžija“ – As God and hatter). Life before children is independent, you can go everywhere, you can back anytime, you have responsibility only for yourself, but after some time, that way of life becomes senseless and empty.
    When a child steps into your life, complete order of values turns upside-down. Your favorite hobbies, friends, and your personality becomes episode actor, and movie star becomes – child. Everything begins to rotate around him, he is His Majesty. If you get the second child, your time will be occupied 150%. My friend says “ next child is not 1+1, rather 1+101). And so on next ten years. After ten years you can catch a breath of air, your life become social again, and funny.
    Little children need total attention, love, patience… But, it’s your life award, and you need to sacrifice all your time.
