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?
