There's a few people in each of our lives who we know will always give sound advice about anything. Our parents, teachers, coaches, and siblings will always be the ones to keep you in check, in line, and be the ones who say what needs to be said even when it hurts. I'm sure my parents will want to change their phone number the day I become a father, but until that day I know I can always call when I have a problem. No issue is too big or too small for them it seems, and I know I can trust them.
On the other hand, we all have those people we're "close" to, but will NEVER ask for life advice. I don't know about you, but the cast of "Jersey Shore" seems like an obvious choice to get hair tips, party advice, drink recipes, and maybe even directions to the nearest free clinic. But since Snooki is obviously now a parenting expert, she has written Kate Middleton an open letter to offer her advice on parenting. Czech it out below!
Dear Duchess of Cambridge aka Kate Middleton,
Waiting for your little Prince or Princess to arrive, I am sure you are prepared for your life to totally change—even more than it already has. In the beginning, right when you take your royal golden nugget home to the castle is the most exciting experience of your life. I couldn't wait to wake up in the middle of the night to take care of my little prince Lorenzo.
But that lasts for about a few days. Then it's like, "I love you but OMG stop crying! I'm exhausted." The lack of sleep you will get used to—just do your makeup, put a tiara on, and you'll look beautiful as usual. Be sure to sing to your baby a lot, too! When I sing to my booger, he calms down and stares at me like he's in love, which makes me feel amazing—or he's just trying to tell me to shut the hell up because I can't sing.
Anyway, music calms them down. I'm pretty sure you can have anyone you want over to sing to your little one … maybe a lullaby from Elton John?
I have no doubt that you will be an amazing mom, but talking to other moms helps, especially being a new mommy. I think we can now add Goddess to your list of titles.
Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi
If I can offer a piece of advice to you, Kate, it's this: don't trust a "Snooki."
