My 20 month daughter wanted to play her favourite game (hide and seek)
while she was strapped into her buggy waiting for the tram.
I covered her head with a blanket and counted to 10.
Ready or not ...
Here I come.
When I "found" her.. She screamed in delight and said "Again, again"
ha ha ha. reminded me of when my daughter was around that age and did something similar, only we didn't have a blanket so she used her (see through) rain cover instead....

Re: I smiled because...

Today I received a lovely note and unexpected gift from another forum member (who I've never met). That made me smile (and tear up a bit).

Bad rattles from your sub-woofer?

Have kids?

This could be the problem

Mine covers her eyes with her hands and is sure we can't see her anymore...

Re: I smiled because...

Our niece is getting married in October and by pure chance she has chosen the middle Saturday of the two week autumn school holidays.
This means that we'll be able to go without having to request time off from school or try to get there and back in two days.
What a clever girl she is (without realising it.)

Apparently moms are only pretty without wrinkles. Nice. Sometimes I really don't care for honesty.

Re: I smiled because...

...after having lived in this country for nine months, the whole time planning to have that trip to Berlin to eat as many döners as I can handle but always feeling a bit too stingy to actually do so, I only now learned that EasyJet flies there from Basel for practically no money.

…I spent yesterday among friendly near-strangers without my German-speaking husband to translate, and got by just fine with my broken German.

…yesterday my tiny firstborn had her very first artistic cycling competition and she looked awesome.

Re: I smiled because...

my wife submitted our final papers for EU blue cards to move to Luxembourg this morning. it ain't Switzerland, but at least it will be a morning's train ride away from a cold Feldschloessli while swimming in the Zuerisee and shouting at the unruly kids with their boomboxes.

I had forgotten the wonderful feeling of very old delicate books you visit like you would a friend. They're just beautiful.
