Lorenzo's mama Snooki recently tweeted a photo of some of her current reading material, and one of the books she's perusing, Sh*tty Mom, caught my eye. I haven't read this book myself, but as one can surmise from the title, it's a light-hearted, don't-take-yourself-too-seriously-as-a-mom kind of book. And that's exactly what Snooki needs right now. (There were a series of tweets this weekend from both Snooki and her fiance Jionni, detailing some less-than-peaceful baby moments.)
Sh*tty Mom it up, dear Snooki. If you don't have a sense of humor after becoming a parent, you're pretty much screwed. Things can get ugly sometimes.
It seems things got a little messy in Casa de LaValle the past few days. During the wee hours of the morning on Saturday, Jionni tweeted: "The little s—t did it again, wakes me up and passes out! he takes after @snooki She warmed the milk n passed out too!" A few hours later, Snooki tweeted: "Gotta love Lorenzo interrupting the movie by throwing up everywhere & s—tting all over himself. Emergency bath!! #Parentproblems @jlavalle." There was another tweet from Jionni about poop and vomit, but I think you get the idea.
You have two choices when things like this happen (and happen they will): You can laugh about it. Or you can get pissed about it. If you do the former, things will run (no pun intended) more smoothly. If you do the latter, it's just going to make a bad situation worse. All sorts of crazy shit happens when you're a parent -- blow-outs; non-stop interrupted sleep; tantrums. If you're worried about everything being perfect and normal and like your friends, it's going to be bad times.
It seems like Snooki seems to be doing a pretty good job at keeping a sense of humor throughout mommyhood. After all, she's reading a book called Sh*tty Mom. As for Jionni, jury's still out. That tweet he wrote didn't exactly scream "light-hearted", but it can't be that hard to crack a smile at least when Snooki's around. Oh, and Lorenzo, too.
Did you keep your sense of humor after becoming a parent?
