Wee Amalia was so determined to ride the "trotineta". It's not easy when you've only just turned two and you don't know how to balance yet! She was so determined to ride it and so pleased with herself when she managed to gain her balance ...
what a great picture! Mum and dad stand proudly by, watching their daughter's achievment.
Look at me, look at me ... I can do it! I can do ...
Then comes the wobble ... can she hold on?
no ... yes ... no ... and she's off! Daniela looks on sympathetically, she's had her share of falls too.
Our wee Amalia is a tough wee thing, not to be deterred by anything so minor as banging her head on a wall.
"did you bump your head?" say daddy, "come on, it's nothing, try again ..."
All that effort finally paid off ... just look at her now! Isn't she great? Imagine this darling wee girl is one of several who live on the streets with their parents, sleeping wherever they find a derelict building or making a hut alongside some hot pipes in the winter. hard to get your head round it, isn't it?
