Take A Chance and Join the Party

Take A Chance and Join the Party

Although my kiddie pool buying experience went down the gutter, I am happy to report that my chance encounter in the parking lot beforehand was worth the risk; not only did I gain a much needed and positive expat experience, but I learned something about myself in return. *********************************************************************** After I borrowed money from the ...

Secret Agent? Paparazzi? Or just plain trouble?

Secret Agent? Paparazzi? Or just plain trouble?

Camera one? Or Camera two? I personally prefer the Hollywood sunglasses look over the paranoid, “Crap! You got me!” look. I wish I could say these were stealthily-taken photos obtained by the enemy during my American spy operations in Deutschland. I’d even rather say these were candid pics taken during heartwarming-Kodak moments abroad. Unfortunately, these ...

The North Sea and Lugworm Poo

The North Sea and Lugworm Poo

I was so excited to take my first trip to the North Sea… and then the subject of Lugworms came up. I was informed that Lugworms eat sand removing the nutrients and then poop it right back out again. (Yes, the Science Dummy is here again so please be sure to read the truth about ...

Motorway Emoticons

Motorway Emoticons

Kay always spots the cool signs while driving… like the temporary sign we saw last month just before entering the Netherlands stating that the-drug-I’m-not-allowed-to-mention-on-this-blog was prohibited to be brought into Germany. And that this substance is only allowed to be sold to Dutch residents. The sign came and went so fast, I wasn’t able to ...

Lily’s Village

Lily’s Village

Within the last two weeks I have read online stories pitting Euro Moms against American Moms, and I just don’t like it. On this website, I tend to write a lot about being an Expat, more often than I write about Mommy incidents. And that’s because I’ve found that although there may be different government ...

It Must be True Because My Husband Says So (Episode 2) – The Parking Disc

It Must be True Because My Husband Says So (Episode 2) – The Parking Disc

Calling dibbs on an enhancehanced version of this…The Parkscheibe (Parking Disc) This is a form of one type of parking meter here in Germany. When you see one of these signs…  It means it is limited-time parking and you put the parking disc in your dashboard window signaling what time you parked in your spot. ...

Wagons – The German Sleeper Car

Wagons – The German Sleeper Car

I used to joke about how much I hated minivans and made it a point to steer clear of them on the road. My motto was, “They drive too slow and erratically because they are paying more attention to the kids in the back than what’s happening on the road.” I used to tease a ...

Die Autofahrt…

Die Autofahrt…

I was going to first entitle this article, “Das Auto Fährt…” But since Kay corrected my original spelling error (not shown here), he came up with the above title. Which I think is even more AWESOME. As Americans we don’t see “Die Autofahrt” but instead…Die Auto Fart. They are really stinky. (And please, unless you ...

How much are you willing to Pay for Religion? – Monetarily, Not Symbolically

How much are you willing to Pay for Religion? – Monetarily, Not Symbolically

It’s probably blasphemous that I am posting this on Easter, but I’m less likely to be religious in Germany than in the US. It isn’t just about the language barrier (although I do have a hard enough time remembering all of the Catholic prayers in English let alone trying to learn them in German, which ...

Babylove Diaper Review (Size 4+)

Babylove Diaper Review (Size 4+)

After getting over the initial shock of the babylove diaper change (size 4+), here are my thoughts now. I’ve had the chance to use the diapers for about 10 days. How to know whether you are buying the new type or old type. (I’m not sure if any of the other sizes have also changed.) The new ...
