What is Carrie Underwood's parenting advice she learned while raising her two sons, Isaiah and Jacob? ALWAYS bring the diaper bag!
Thanks to the nice lady who offered to buy me a drink at lunch today after I carried my naked, poo covered, screaming baby up the stairs and back to my table. It was a rookie mistake leaving the diaper bag at the table and only taking a diaper and 2 wipes. Never again. 🍷👦🏼

While giving Thomas Rhett parenting advice on iHeartRadio, Dierks said "Don’t be afraid if you drink four Red Bulls a day. There’s nothing you can really do to get ready for it. You can read books, and you can talk to me as much as you want, but you’re gonna be a different parent than I am, just like I’m gonna be a different parent than you are. So, I think the best advice is just kinda take it as it comes, and just realize that you’re gonna be exhausted." You need all the energy you can get while raising two daughters and a son like Dierks. And now Thomas is about to be a father of three as well... all girls. Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren Akins are expecting their third baby girl in early 2020. Better stock up on those Red Bulls!

But when they start becoming three and four, that’s when it’s like … for the dad, he can hop in the car with you and y’all go knock around. It goes from good to stratosphere good. It did for me. The early years are tough, because they’re so bonded to their mother.”
