The kids are proud of their Mom
We met in the barracks “Ilinden”, where everything was organized with military precision.
– The children are proud that Mom is a soldier, a military policeman. I do not let them see me in a uniform often, yet they know, understand what I am doing and are already old enough to understand what my job looks like and that I may not be with them in the park for the weekend. Then, when we see each other, we compensate that with hugs – says Verica.
The son, although older is more emotional, and the daughter is a little rascal.
– I usually come up with a new toy on the door. For Martina this period it is most often associated with the characters from the cartoon “Frozen”, and for Mihail from “Cars” or “Ninja Turtles”. For the upbringing of children we are well-coordinated and organized with my husband, we have the same methods. Joking aside, there are no military rules at home, especially not with the children, but we set reasonable boundaries what can be done and what cannot. Certainly, besides the children being healthy, the most important things for us are to be happy, sociable and socialized, not to be aggressive, to know how to handle different situations, to be examples of good pupils – says Zlateska.
I knew what I wanted and what was expected of me
Verica explains that when in a uniform she is a soldier, but as soon as she takes it off just a simple woman, with everyday obligations. Make-up and uniform do not go together. Moderate make-up is allowed, and there is also a dress code respected about the civilian clothes worn when arriving at work.
