Zur Abwechslung / as a change

(English version follows below)

Tjaja, letztes Jahr fiel der Geburtstag wegen Hand-Mund-Fuß-Krankheit flach. Dieses Jahr haben wir uns zur Abwechslung Ringelröteln ausgesucht. Wobei der Kleine schon fast nicht mehr ansteckend ist. Nur die Große, die muss bis übermorgen noch fit werden! Da heißt es Daumen drücken!

(Und es ist immer so frustrierend, wenn man wieder merkt, dass man doch erst einen winzigen Teil der üblichen Kinderkrankheiten als erledigt betrachten kann und wie viele in den nächsten Jahren noch auf einen warten!)


Well, well, last year we were haunted by the hand, foot, mouth disease and the birthday of the little one had to be cancelled. This year, we chose the Fifth Disease for a change. Though the hobbit is probably not infectious anymore. But the little one, she still needs to get fit again for her big day on Thursday. Fingers crossed!

(And isn’t it frustrating when you realize how few of the common children diseases you can tick off and how many there are still left for the next years to come?)

About erdhummel

Familial entropy - that's an insight into our current life which has been fundamentally changed last summer when our daughter was born. Having studied in Cottbus, Germany, and worked/studied in Edinburgh, Scotland, we momentarily live in a small town in Switzerland where Karsten is trying to save the environment and Freddie is trying to save our sanity. Since there is not much time for elaborate, long emails while doing that, we thought a blog might be a good option to smuggle ourselves into the lifes of our friends.
