Thursday, October 15, 1925
Cloudy

My first day up. Ate breakfast in bed and got up while the boys were all gone and Ned asleep and such a surprised look on their faces when they saw me up! They all seemed so glad. Bless their hearts. I felt fine and didn’t even have pins in my feet when I got up.

(I guess new mothers did stay in bed for 10 days “back then”, as this was the 10th day since Marjorie was born. And just like that, Grandma is up and moving again.

I am sure the boys were wondering when life would get back to normal.)

  1. I guess it's time to get back to work for Mother. One more baby to go for the Smith family.

  2. Your blog is long out of date - I think you must be well over 100 years old by now!

    Wouldn't that be nice to be able to stay in bed for 10 days and read, watch TV? Of course they didn't have tv then. My husband had me out walking the block when my daughter was 2 days old! I don't remember being able to take any sort of break with the others either.

  4. I wonder if they were allowed up to go use the restroom?
