Note: This series, Berlin with Baby, is being written in real time to be published upon our return to the United States.
August 17 -- Today I put on my big girl pants and sat in a restaurant alone – with Jane of course – and ordered mostly in German. It was an outdoor café and I had milchkaffee (YUM) and broccoli & ham strudel (meh). It wasn’t as bad as I thought, and I really should have done it every day.
In my defense I was trying to game Jane’s moods and not make her have to sit in her stroller too much – or have to try to balance her while eating myself. Today she did just fine though. But most days for lunch I ate a sandwich on the go – either purchased for a couple Euros or made at the apartment.
We also found a spielplatz (playground). It was for older kids, but she had a good time watching other kids play. I put her in the sand and she wasn’t a fan. We went to a toy store and she picked out a toy – really the first time I know of that she expressed an opinion. Although maybe she was just grabbing for the nearest colorful thing? But there were lots of colorful things so who knows.
