After the birth of Sugarplum, I entered the Taiwanese Sitting Month. It is the post-partum month where new Mothers have a whole new set of menu and physical restrictions to aid in their recovery.
I was fortunate enough to have Mom who volunteered to help us out during my Sitting Month. Mom cooked me five small meals a day, helped clean our increasingly neglected apartment, took care of our newborn Plumster whenever we needed a nap, a walk, or a private dinner with just MK and me. I never quite expressed my gratitude properly for all the help and love and wisdom she shared with us.
If you have a Taiwanese mother, mother-in-law, or a really really nice Taiwanese neighbor, I highly recommend this “Sitting Month”, where you are pampered in style fit for a queen.
