I just put Claire down for a nap and read that a sow can have up to 27 piglets in one litter! Could you imagine? I just had an extremely tough morning and so it really hit me thinking "I only have two!" Yes, I know it's silly to compare what we do as moms to a pig but I just thought it amazing.
I really haven't been out and about with the girls by myself because the timing is so weird and hard to get down. By the time I get everyone ready to go after feeding Eden, I only have an hour and a half or so before she eats again. (And that's if she waits her 3 hours - sometimes it's 2.5 hours). Or when Claire gets up from a nap, I have to feed Eden shortly after... I'm learning all over again. This morning I went to run errands that I have to get done for tomorrow and realized why I don't go out much!! While leaving Hobby Lobby, Eden started crying pretty hard but fortunately stopped when the car started running. So I thought "Oh she'll be fine to go to Costco" - well, no! She had a melt down pretty much from when we got to Costco to when we pulled into the driveway. When I say cry, I mean scream - the tongue quiver, red faced, can't-catch-my-breath kind of crying that breaks your heart....Of course, Claire wasn't making things much better! She hasn't heard Eden cry like that so she was a little stressed too (probably because of me)!
Needless to say, I needed some blogging to be my stress relief. I know I have so much to do right now but this is so cathartic for me!
All that to say hats off to you mother sow! You amaze me!
Here are a few cute ones of my piglets:
