In the background he calls little (3) repeatedly after his mother when BUNTE (33) reached in the middle of the stress of moving. Daughter (5) sits quietly at the table and paints. For this purpose, boxes have to be unpacked and zoom conferences have to be held. The normal family madness, exacerbated in Corona times. In BUNTE, the Olympic champion talks about her life as a working mother beyond Instagram clichés.
How are you, Ms. Neuner?
As probably many parents. I have been at home with Vreni and Josef for almost three months without a kindergarten. We have only recently been allowed to go back to the playground or to Grandma. My husband works all day, as a freelance carpenter and construction planner, it is high season in the summer. Then we moved, we have built our dream house in the past two years. It was a tough time. But now the move is almost done and the children are happy that they will soon be able to go back to kindergarten. I hope that normality will return.
Gaby Baginsky: Corona drama about her mother: "She wanted to die"
© Getty Images Gaby Baginsky The corona crisis demands a lot from people worldwide - especially the older ones. Pop singer Gaby Baginsky also had to experience this firsthand. Her mother Berta even wanted to commit suicide. The spread of the coronavirus can only be curbed by strictly prohibiting contact. Germany has been in the lockdown for more than eight weeks, contact locks are only loosened slowly. It is particularly important to protect older people because they are particularly at risk.
For Magdalena, it goes without saying that you stand up for refugee children. Why? We show that in the following video.
How did you experience this time?
I tried to do a lot with the kids. But you also have your tasks, and parents cannot replace educational support and cooperation in kindergarten, even if you try. My big one copes well with it, she enjoys spending time at home. But my little one really suffers from it, he needs children of the same age. He's just in a bad mood all the time, he never was before. I have sometimes reached my limits.
I had a couple of real crying fits, so I don't know myself at all. You just get on each other's nerves, the kids me, but I'm sure the kids too. But you still have to make the best of it.
Ruthless Ferrari trait that drove Vettel out
It's the problem that surfaces at Ferrari time and again, and this time it's claimed the scalp of Sebastian Vettel.This season will be Vettel's sixth and last with the Scuderia, a partnership that despite yielding 14 race wins has ultimately been disappointing.
Still a tight program. They have become narrower.
Yes, but involuntarily. I eat healthy and balanced, but I also eat a bar of chocolate from time to time, I'm a gourmet. But after the birth of our second child, I had really bad health problems. I developed an overactive thyroid gland, my heart was pounding, I was often over the top and I lost a lot of weight. I caught infections all the time and never got to my feet. I was physically completely on the ground, could not get up on some days, my energy was used up.
That sounds like the direct route to a burnout ...
Yes, I had that as an athlete before, and after the second child I really had to change something. But I don't think that burnout is a sign of weakness. It is a sign of the body: "You have to do less". I was at the limit. The little boy was one year old, I had lost so much weight, worked so much, somehow wanted to be fair to everyone and everyone, until my family said to me: "If you don't do less now, you will break down. That doesn't help anyone . "
