English Estonian Mõtted

Idast saab “friskus”/Friskus is an old-Norwegian word that symbolizes a person, whose motto was that “there is no bad weather, only wrong clothing”

Me oleksime sel nädalal pidanud Idaga olema Norras, et ta saaks veel viimast korda seal lasteaias käia, aga…Eestimaa suvi on nii imeline ja nii palju on üritusi, et oleks patt kodust ära minna, tööalaselt ei ole juuni-juuli Skandinaavias just töökuud ning ega see eesootav Disneyland järgmisel kuul ka kõige odavam lõbu ei ole, nii et sel kuul on mõistlik kulud võimalikult väikesed hoida.

Norras algaks Idal lasteaia viimane aasta. Ma hakkasin mõtlema, et aga võib-olla peaks laskma Idal veel aasta vaheldumisi Norras ja Eestis lasteaias käia. Küsisin Idalt, kas ta tahaks, vastuseks tuli “jaaaaaa”, uurisin Norras lasteaialt, mida nemad arvavad, rääkisin Marekiga ja nii ma taotluse lasteaiakoha pikendamiseks tegingi.

Koht on olemas. Ida läheb seega augustis lasteaia lõpurühma, mis selles lasteaias (võib olla on nii ka teistes lasteaedades, ma ei tea süsteemi nii täpselt) on natuke erilisem. Temast saab “friskus” – nad on eraldi majas ja teevad natuke rohkem suurte laste asju kui teised lasteaialapsed. Käivad matkadel, nii jalgsi, rattaga kui suuskadel, õpivad süüa tegema ja jumal teab, mida kõike veel. Tundub nii paganama äge! Friskus on vananorra sõna, mis tähendab inimest, kelle moto oli, et “pole halba ilma, on vaid halb riietus” ja see ütleb tegelikult juba kõik selle lasteaiarühma kohta. Ma arvan, et aasta friskusena tuleb Idale vaid kasuks.

Ainus asi, mis mulle natuke muret tekitas (tekitab) on keel. Ida saab küll palju norra keelest aru ja on täitsa tubli enda soove norra keeles väljendama, kuid kindlasti mitte ei oska ta seda samal tasemel kui temavanused Norras elavad lapsed. Keelekeskkonnast kolisime me ju siiski pea kaks aastat tagasi ära ja see, et me vaatame multikaid, loeme raamatuid ja kuulame laule, ei ole päris sama. Ma näen, kui ta teinekord tahab midagi norra keeles öelda, aga sõnavarast jääb puudu. Samas on ta äärmiselt leidlik ja on end ikkagi arusaadavaks teinud. Lasteaia õpetajad on olnud fantastilised ja nii ei olnud terve see aasta üldse probleemi, et ta hakkama ei saaks. Ehk siis tegelikult ei teegi mulle muret tema poolik keeleoskus kui see, et kas see võib talle kuidagi ka negatiivselt mõjuda, et ta ei oska teiste lastega sama vabalt suhelda nagu emakeeles. Ma ei tahaks kuidagi oma teadmatusest lapsele stressi tekitada.

Aga kui ta ise tahab, küsib ikka minult, kuidas üks või teine asi on norra keeles, tahab koduski aegajalt norra keeles rääkida, õpetajad on öelnud, et polnud probleemi ning lastega on Ida sõber, siis ilmselt ei peaks ma muretsema, vaid keskenduma ja tundma rõõmu sellest, et Ida saab parima kahest lasteaiast. See ei kõla sugugi halvasti ju kui aus olla?

Me and Ida should have been in Norway this week so she could go to her nursery there for the last time, but … Estonian summer is just amazing this year with so many events going on, that it seemed stupid to leave. June and July are not active business wise anyway and our trip to Disneyland next month is not going to be a cheap one. Therefore, it seemed responsible to keep the costs down this month.

In Norway Ida would start her last year in nursery and I started to think maybe letting her to go both to Estonian and Norwegian nursery for one more year. I asked Ida, if she’d like that, and the answers was “Yeeeeeees”. Then I contacted the nursery in Norway what they think about this idea, spoke to Marek and applied for one more year extension.

We got the space and therefore in August, Ida will go to the senior class, which in this nursery (maybe in others as well, I am not sure about the system) is a bit special. She will become friskus – they will stay in a separate building and do more “big children” things than other. They will go hiking by foot, bike and even on skies, learn to cook and god knows what else. Sounds so much freakin’ fun. Friskus is an old-Norwegian word that symbolizes a person, whose motto wasthat “there is no bad weather, only wrong clothing”. That says it all about this nursery if I am completely honest. I believe that spending a year as friskus will only benefit Ida.

The only thing that concerned (concerns) me is language. Ida understands a lot of Norwegian and is very good at expressing her wishes, but she is definitely not as fluent as other children in her age living in Norway. We moved away from there nearly two years ago and though we still watch cartoons or read books and listen to songs in Norwegian, it is not the same. I can see that sometimes she wants to say something in Norwegian, but is lacking in vocabulary. But then again, she is very cleaver and still finds a way to express herself. The teachers in her nursery have just been fantastic and there was not once a situation that she couldn’t handle. So it is not her semi-complete language skills that worry me, but more if the fact that she cannot communicate as fluent as other kids, have a negative impact on her. No way would I like to cause my child stress simply because I didn’t know.

But if she wants, she still asks how one or another word is in Norwegian. Sometimes she wants to speak in Norwegian at home, the teachers have assured there has been no problems and Ida gets along with all the children. So I should really not be worrying, but feel happy that Ida can have the best of both nurseries. That doesn’t sound that bad to be honest, does it?
