Vincença , our social worker, Lais (who couldn’t come today, she is a volunteer) and I  are in a new project: gathering moms with their kids between 7-11 to group chat and kinda therapeutical because we discuss topics about motherhood, children at school (golden years) and more…we all know each other for so many years now… and with you my web friends some moments in pictures:

1) VERY FUNNY AND INTERESTING WARMING UP  GAME: each  mom would choose a  ” son” (not her own, but another mom’s)

and chat with him, asking stuff about his life, the things he loves, if he knows how to self-infuse already…

O aquecimento foi um “troca-troca” de mães e filhos: cada mãe escolheu  ter um filho por “uns minutos” para fazer umas perguntas sobre como ele passa o dia, o que ele gosta de fazer, sua comida preferida, se ele ja sabe fazer auto-infusão…e outras coisas mais que irei colocar aqui no blog.

FOI MUITO ENGRAÇADO VER A SURPRESA DE CADA UM QUANDO TEVE QUE FICAR COM OUTRA PESSOA! e depois fluiu tão bem…eles ficavam conversando na boa…

Even me , I was “mom” of  Gabriel (he is 13 and was passing by, at the center…i know him since his first month in this planet 😉
