As a first-time mother to a baby daughter, Asami, I now comprehend what other people were talking about when they said life as a new parent is tough. But in addition to the rewarding feeling of seeing your baby smile and grow, I have actually found a few things that are – surprise – much easier now that I have to take care of a baby:
I always have perfectly luscious lips
With my baby daughter, I have to change diapers every couple of hours. Right before I apply some ointment to my baby’s bottom, I take some Aquaphor Healing Ointment out of the big tub and apply it to my lips. Voila – Luscious Lips!
No need for annoying upper body strength training
As a bottom-heavy person, I’ve always sacrificed my upper body strength training for doing lower body work outs. Now I have to lift a 12-pound baby so many times a day, my arms have naturally become more toned and strong. I don’t have to even have to motivate myself to do an arm work out. And the weight will naturally get heavier without my having to push myself!
Breastfeeding – the best weight loss program ever
You can eat pretty much whatever you whenever you want in whatever quantities you want and you STILL lose weight! Need I say more?
Peace of mind – for the most part
Pregnancy and even more so motherhood sweep through your brain and make you forgetful, thus the term new mommy brain. But along with important names and sales figures, you also forget and frankly stop caring about a lot of petty things that used to clutter your brain. What is left is peace of mind – for the most part…
