After that, we pack up and walk to the post office. I miss being able to leave outgoing mail in my mailbox, but the Dutch just don't do that. I shouldn't complain; we live a stone's throw away from a post office.
1:45 the baby is up and we head out to run errands. On this particular day, I have to go to a store west of Amsterdam, so I catch the tram near our house.
|Ugh, I don't know why, but Osdorp depresses me. I think it's all the low-cost housing from the 70s and 80s. I feel like I've entered another universe.|
6:15 Niek comes home and the baby is awake. Just in time for our family meal.
Around 7:00, we put the munchkin in her pajamas and settle down for a few stories. Of course, Johanna wants to get in one more meltdown before bedtime.
