It looked like it was going to be that kind of a day. It got precariously close to being that kind of day. Sometimes, when M gets like that, I can supermom through it. The meltdowns don't faze me, I'm empathetic and creative in finding ways to keep the boys calm and separated and happy.
But this morning I was tired. And annoyed. Supermom wasn't coming through for me.
It wasn't even 9 am, and I was beyond my last nerve when I remembered to get him a piece of magic chocolate. Then Whim suggested our other secret weapon- the Nong Bon Watersport Center near our house.
It's an unkempt, secluded park. One of just a few places in Bangkok that doesn't feel like a city.

|These were taken the week L was born, and this is the ONLY one of me that I liked.|
Thankfully, it's still just as beautiful and secluded three years later. We spent the morning there and and unwound.
What is it about nature and a little bit of open space that calms us?
