A MONTH IN THAILAND WITH TWO LITTLE ONES


















More than six months have passed and with two little ones there has been no time for anything, besides taking care of them. Like Kim Kardashian on today's episode said: 'my mom always told me that having one child is like one, two is like having twenty!'. I must admit that I agree with her. The only thing I can recommend to make life easier is travel to Thailand. Make sure to spend at least a month there. I wish we could have stayed at least two months there. I have never been on one holiday where I didn't miss small things from back home. It could be something simple like a glass of milk or a piece of rye bread with cheese. But this time, I didn't miss anything at all. Everything in Thailand was so much more simple. We didn't have to do any housework, we went out for every meal every day and had a massage nearly everyday. 

Our typical day consisted of waking up at 6 (it is so much easier getting up early in a warm country), M going for a run while I did yoga, going out for breakfast, going to the beach, swimming 50 lanes, having a massage, eating lunch (a meal was around 10 DKR), having a nap (if the little ones both slept at the same time, we weren't always that lucky!), going out for dinner, having a drink at the terrace while the kids were sleeping and going to bed early, reading a good book. No wonder I didn't miss home at all. Housework with two little ones can feel like an extremely boring job. 

Travelling with a toddler and a baby is hard work, but at the same time also easy. Little A enjoyed herself most days playing at the beach. We even managed to find her a few friends. The first one must have been a grandparent. One day at the beach she came and asked if she could borrow her to play with and they spent several afternoons playing in the sand and eating ice cream together while M and I took a nap. Little C is probably one of the easiest babies you can have. The months (might have been weeks, but it felt like months!) where he cried most evenings before falling asleep just before midnight disappeared from day one. Although he didn't sleep through the night before he was 6 months (little A was 4 months), he never really cried in Thailand. He fell asleep before 8 and all day he was just lying in his little nest under the palm trees. He rarely had naps, but he just didn't wanted to miss anything and people kept coming up to us saying how easy he was. 

That month in Thailand is probably not something we might be able to do anytime soon, but I hope that we will get that opportunity again someday. It was one of the best Januarys I have ever had. Besides the January where I met M, soon coming up on ten years.
