Postpartum Tips For New Dads Everyone Needs To Know

1. It takes women a full month to recover after birth.

Sometimes called the “tenth month of pregnancy,” the first month after birth is often both painful and exhausting for the new mother. Her organs are slowly shifting back into place as her body works overtime to produce milk.

Many other cultures provide support for new mothers during this key time — the French, for example, send at-home nurses to help new mothers care for babies, while Indian, Chinese, and Mexican customs all require mothers to rest for the first month after birth while others take care of basic home care.

My Husband Took My Last Name

Whenever I’m asked a unique trait or some sort of trivia about myself I seem to always forget one of the the most interesting conversation starters I have: My Husband Took My Last Name.

Unforgettable Family Fun at Rocky Branch Railroad and Old West Ghost Town

Recently we made a trip to the Rocky Branch Railroad and Ghost Town.

We had family come to town and didn’t want to be the old bumps on the logs we normally are. Since my husband and I had been talking about taking Ty to a nearby old west ghost, we figured this would be a great time. It was also a great thing to take Pappy and our niece and nephew to.

The price of admission was very reasonable compared to many of the other attractions we attended during the week (including Zoo Atlanta, The Georgia Aquarium, The World of Coke, and The Fernbank Museum). For $10 you got a hay ride, a trip on the train, alligator exhibit, an 1880’s Variety Show, a gun slinging show and even robbed at gunpoint by train robbers (oh my!).
