Eltern Kind e.V. Tag

Today seems to be the day of Eltern Kind initiative.

This is how you get a Kindergarten place here. It is not easy. Seems it was invented be extroverted parents, who didn’t want to miss out their party life, when their kid was going to the Kita.

Anywho, our daughter needs a place I October, so we basically take everything.

And today we looked already into 2 different ones.

That is hard work, just that your kid is kept for some hours per day and not dying.

Most of the time they play with other kids. But as parent you will be member of a club and responsible for cooking, cleaning and club life, organisation stuff.

After a lot of exposure of your private life, it isn’t even sure we will get a place.

Wish us luck. In any direction 🙂

3x Zoo

3 times a charm?
Well, we went 3 times to the zoo this year already.
If we keep up that pace, we will be around 100 visits at the end of this year:)

But it was so cold last Sunday.
We did the big tour, because Mademoiselle wanted to see the cows. And was half freezing and asleep at the time we arrived there.
The catering at the Wilhelma is really bad currently.
They did change restaurant owners and the new one didn’t move in yet.
Street food only. In the cold.

Next time, we will go in the lower houses only.
Botanical gardens, aquarium, Amazon and insects.

Plötzlich Feiertag 

I don’t like those sudden public holidays.

Like today. 

Yesterday, Friday, we went shoping, a bit in the evening. I didn’t expect much to. But just overheard a conversation: „we are closed tomorrow, on monday you can pick it up..“ 

Wait? Tomorrow is Saturday, why are they closed?

Damn, 3 Kings.. 

So I talked to my wife :

„action Station, action Station.. We are in full emergency mode, we have a long weekend ahead! Let’s shop for the whole weekend!“

Those holidays always get me by surprise..

I was recently asked, what are my hobbies. But I couldn’t give a definite answer. So here is a list of things I do in my free time:

  • Waking up at 5
  • Taking public transport
  • Food shopping 
  • Parenting
  • Watching 1h of tv

That kind of fills my normal workday, work excluded. 

Weekends are the same, sans working and public transport, just way more parenting. 

I wouldn’t even know where to put a time slot for a cheap hobby. I don’t even know when I played Europa Universalis last.

Alte Kameraden


That is still ongoing?

I was smiling, seeing this at the bus stop. 

It has been 40 years now. That is longer ago than the 2. World War from 1977.

I guess some will always be ‚die ewig Gestrigen‘. 

This is exactly what they complained in the beginning. Not to talk about the mistakes of the past. They are now the same as their parents were, returning from the war. 

Sorry, but you lost. Get over it.

Last weekend we were on a winter wedding.

Yes I know my dad always says it, you only marry in March to June, so you have helping hands during the harvest and not to feed unhelping mouth during the winter months.

Anyway, we were invited. And had so much fun. Especially our daughter. So. Much.. Chocolate!

The whole day. And continued the next day, as my dad was St Nikolaus again in our village Christmas Market. 

More chocolate! Huge 200g chocolate nikolaus to eat.

But the only picture I can publish is this cat content. You will enjoy!

We didn’t expect that reaction..

Since yesterday our Adventskalender is on the wall:

And our daughter was not to be stopped. She cried and throw a tantrum, because she couldn’t open any package. 

(not that there is much inside, pictures to illustrate activities we could do on that day)

But that is a good sign.. She has to learn dealing with frustration
