In the Zone with Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi
Is life still a party for Jersey Shore's Snooki? Nicole Polizzi lets us in on her new reality as a mom.
New mom Nicole Polizzi, best known as Snooki from MTV’s Jersey Shore, is sharing how her life has changed since the birth of her son Lorenzo. The reality star’s new book, Baby Bumps, follows her bumpy ride from party girl to proud mama.
“I wanted to tell the story of my pregnancy and how much having Lorenzo has changed my life,” Snooki recently told BabyZone. “I wanted my book to be brutally honest, but funny at the same time. It’s in no way an advice book on parenting, it’s a relatable book that tells the story of my journey and my pregnancy.”
Is life still a party now that she’s a mom? Here’s a look at Snooki’s new reality.
What’s your golden rule of parenting?
Have fun! Jionni [Lorenzo's dad] and I make sure that in between reading to Lorenzo and helping him learn, we always take time to laugh and giggle and just enjoy being a family and being with each other. Smiling is the best medicine and I want my kids to be the happiest little nuggets.
What’s been your best moment of parenting so far?
My son definitely taught me the true meaning of life and the small stuff is so much better than everything else. Lorenzo lets me be a kid again but also teaches me how to be a responsible and loving mother.
And the worst?
The exhaustion of being a parent sucks! There’s hardly any down time and it’s always go, go, go! But I enjoy being on my toes and running around, maybe that’s why I want five kids.
What’s the best advice you ever received about parenting?
Try not to stress or worry about how you are doing as a parent. Thinking too much is exhausting. Trust your natural instincts.
What’s the one thing you can’t live without as a mom?
I can’t live without my son. Before Lorenzo, I couldn’t live without my shoes and best friends. Now it’s all about my son.
Finish this sentence: You know you’re in the Baby Zone when…
The smell of diapers, binkies everywhere, toys all over, and my little nugget running around… that’s the baby zone!
