Britta's Letters from (and sometimes about) Berlin

So useful - once...

I try to write a post on my cellphone - not easy. Thus it will be (unusually) short. 
I found a photo of the cart I gave to my grandchildren one and a half year ago - so useful for triplets! It has a motor, which is very necessary as we have more than "hills" here. 

Nowadays it is seldom used. The triplets are 2 years and 4 month old and prefer to walk - long distances for little legs. The cart stands in the garage, and I look at it with a sort of nostalgia.

  2. It won't seem long until they will be wanting the cart you can see behind it - one each.

    1. You have VERY sharp eyes, Tasker. And the Corvette stands beside it - I prefer that, room enough for two.

    2. Britta, I believe you. Oh to be the other one. I do like the baby buggy though. Vorsprung durch technik.

    3. The Corvette has a registration only from spring till the end of October, Tasker. So patience is required :-)

  3. What a fabulous thing, Britta! Hang onto it long enough and the triplets will be able to tow you along in it rather than the bathchair we're all destined for. That's if you can squeeze your long limbs into it?

    1. Hohoho, Pip, hope there still will be much time before that - and yes: limbs by far too long :-) I thankfully still walk my 8 - 10 km per day on my own "one...two..feet", as Linus from the Peanuts said.

  4. Normally a single baby is propelled forward in a pusher, with no ability to chatter to anyone or to see sideways or backwards. Your cart allowed the triplets the socialise with each other, and with the adult doing the pushing. Bloody brilliant!

    1. I was also so impressed by it.
      As to pushers, for my small son I deliberately chose one (and seeking a long time for it) where he looked in my direction - and around of course - so I could see his reactions and talk with (not to) him.
      Today I see a lot of mothers staring into their smartphone without any reaction to their child - though my attitude towards them has become a bit milder I yet wouldn't do that. I look back and see the hours it took us to walk anywhere - standing, staring, asking, attention focused -- when years later I walked the same path, I only needed 15 minutes where it used to be and hour at least.

  5. The cart looks wonderful, I have never seen anything like it before. The triplets must be full of beans and have lots of spare energy to have already rejected sitting in it and enjoying the ride.

    1. Dear Rosemary, I also had never before seen a cart like that - my son raced through the Internet and found a handicraft business in Saxony - they produced it in the GDR for kindergartens.
      And energy: oh yes...lots of... more than triple of mine... :-)

    1. That is so true, Rachel - you can watch them grow, learn to speak, use their own will... Wonderful for me to be allowed to see that so near. xxx

  7. I love the cart. Attractive and so functional.

    1. Dear Mimmylynn, I also enjoy the colours. And with it we can go much further than without - the triplets run far and fast, but if they are tired they can jump in.

  8. That is a beautiful cart. You chose well! The cart is standing ready for another grandchild. If not, I'm sure someone would be delighted to have it. Soon your grandchildren will be riding tricycles.

    1. Dear Susan, I bought it, but son discovered it.
      I will miss the sight of the triplets sleeping in it during a long walk: heads and arms on the table in the middle.
      Tricycles I am a bit afraid of - though they will come of course - the street in front of their house is ok and parallel, but then the hill that follows is very steep, and at the end down the street is more frequented. But they will learn.
