Axel, patriarch in the pink robe

Playing board games with my parents always follows the same pattern. My dad wins. It's so much fun!

"Today we wont spend all day in front of our laptops" - "Of course not! Today we will do something!"

Here is another one in German. I've been spending a lot of time with my friend Fee. We share a laptop, underwear, potato chips and taxi rides.
Words by Fee, drawings by me.
Text von Fee, Bild von mir. Ich hoffe, man kann das lesen.

I am packing my stuff to leave Berlin within a few weeks. As I am living out of boxes I can't find any of the 3000 post-it notes i bought at Lidl some months ago. So I am using the b-sides of my old post-it cartoons.
This is what I look like today with my big swollen head.

Just some old portrait I sat on last night:

Partytrick Number 458

Have a good cry at your favourite bar. Make sure everybody sees it.

(Where are my pens? I think someone stole my pens.)

I don't have to tell you what happened next

You know you are having a bad day when even birds think of you as a place worth to take a dump at.

"Huh?! Who is that??"

After seven years of abstinence I thought it would be a nice idea to start painting with acrylics again. And I have started painting a wonderful portrait of Axel and am quite proud of it.
But maybe it isn't as good as I thought. A friend came by and wondered who it pictures. I told her it was a picture of Liese.

People on the playground

One of my favourite things to do is to categorize people. On Berlin-Neukölln playgrounds you can find the following groups:

1) the grandmothers

2) the modern mums

3) the monstrous bad guy father

and 4) the supermotivated active fathers who participate in everything and like to talk about their toddler son's diarrhea. (I was too lazy to draw them)

Liese and I don't have any playground friends. I would love to have some girlfriends to play "modern mums" with. It feels so unelitist not to be able to talk about Lieses stool with anyone.

My daughter Liese is, like every toddler, a friend of those small keyring pendant animals that I hate. Have you noticed that the owners of these toys are often or lets say almost always disproportionately less cute than their pendant animals?

More stories about garbage / Things that happened to me this week:

Axel told me to take out the trash when I was leaving for work and then I forgot about it and noticed the garbage bag in my hand when I was waiting for the s-bahn and the owner of the newspaper kiosk at the station wouldn't let me use his waste container, so I had to go back and find another one outside and almost missed my train.

Liese is now two years old. That makes me think of all the things that have changed during these last two years and things we have learned.
As parents we have developed a lot of new fears. And I am not talking about the common "I am not allowed to die" anxieties or any other huge fears.
One of my worst everyday fears is that the condensation water from the lid of the diaper pail could touch my hand while I throw in used diapers. I didn't even know that there was condensation water in diaper pails and I so wish there wasn't any.

Translation: "Liese sits chair! Well done!"

It's creepy that Liese can build and climb a "double chair" within just a few seconds.

Sometimes it isn't that easy to come up with something funny for my blog. This is what happened to me during the last two months. As I have got a new haircut and lost some weight I don't even know how to draw myself any longer. It's as if I have lost all my characteristics (but i a good way). So, if you see a strange looking woman in this blog, it's probably me.
I also want you to leave more comments, that makes me happy!
