Economics teaches us scarcity.
Economics teaches us about opportunity cost.
Economics teaches us that we have to make choices.
It applies directly to my life now more than ever.
I have limited time.
I have 2 babies. I have 2 hands.
This morning as I was breastfeeding Oliver, Edward was pushing his poo poo with his diaper on. Normally we would bring him straight to his potty and wash him up afterwards. But since I just started my breastfeeding session, I couldn’t just get up and attend to Edward. and so, Edward had to wait for 20 minutes with his poo poo in his diaper… poor baby.
Edward wakes up from his nap crying, almost every other day (stress from this whole new situation with a brother, i guess). And yet some days I couldn’t carry him and soothe him because I was breastfeeding! or that I was burping Oliver… If i put him down, he will be so uncomfortable and cry (because of acid reflux)… and so, my Edward had to scream and scream and scream and was inconsolable until I could carry him and give him a hug…
Sometimes though, I had to leave Oliver to cry because Edward needed comforting…
I am going crazy. I love both my sons. Both of them need me. I want to give them my all. But I can’t.
Poor babies. Poor mummy.
