Kourtney Kardashian's Working Mom Tips Aren't as Bright as Her PJs


kourtney making time for masonIn her latest mommy vlog, Kourtney talks with us about "Making Time for Mason." Oh sweet Kourtney, trying to talk about the work/family balance in a relatable way. Bless her privileged, pampered heart -- it's in the right place. Did you know that there are all kinds of moms? Professional moms, stay-at-home moms, part-time moms, moms who juggle jungle cats, moms who travel to the moon, moms in pink and yellow Pucci. Like, all kinds.

And Kourtney wants to make it clear that she's totally okay with all these moms. She doesn't want to start a mommy war like the one Anderson Cooper just lit yesterday (dude, how long have you been on TV?). She is so not judgy! Love her! Sigh ... but if only her advice were actually useful to us.

Okay, so nothing against type-A moms, but Kourtney identifies herself as a calm, go-with-the-flow kind of mom: "I don't have a crazy strict schedule. That's what works for me and my family." (Yeah, that would work for me and my family, too, if we were loaded.) And Kourtney even struggles with the same mommy guilt many of us other moms deal with when she works.

So what's her strategy? Servants. She schedules as many of her meetings as possible to take place at her house, of course. And that's a great idea. I should do that, too! Thanks for the suggestion, Kourt! Hey, Stir staff, just a heads-up: From now on you'll all be trekking out to Brooklyn for our staff meetings. Because that's what works best for me and my family. Sweet!

Okay, so that problem's solved. Strategy #2 is: Work during nap-time. OMG, that's brilliant! Parents have only been doing that since the dawn of the human race! AND YET, it never quite works as well as you'd like it to. Doesn't it always seem like those days when you've got a time-sensitive project are the days when your kid just won't nap? Oh well, don't let it trouble your pajama-clad self, Kourtney. Yes, we noticed -- you're working in your pajamas. Not judging you! Just a wee bit jealous.

Are Kourtney's working mom tips helpful to you?

The only "tip" I heard was to do your best and not be judgmental. She's not suggesting other moms follow her schedule, she's just sharing how she balances time between work and her son.

If I had their money I wouldnt have to "make time" for my daughter, because I would have nothing but time. What excatly is she so busy doing? Oh ya, I forgot, their shows are staged.

Thank goodness she shared these valuable tips with us. I don't know how I've survived the last 6 years as a working mom without her. I am saved!

Its so hard to relate to a mom thats a millionaire when all the rest of us "average" moms actually have to work to survive! So crazy so annoying !

When she says she doesn't have a strict schedule meaning not to be so uptight if everything doesn't turn out the way you planed... Working during naps might mean instead of taking a nap if you really don't need it you can get a lot more done. thanks kat. Xoxo

Jeez, angry blogger. Everyone get on the hate train. I think she was trying to be relatable and said something all moms should take in: don't be judgmental. You know we all do it and it's nice that a " celeb" called it out.

For everyone's information who doesn't watch their show... Her and her sisters own a few different clothing stores... in Miami, LA, and New York... so apart from her roles on her tv shows, she is also managing the stores... which by the way, she is the hardest working sister out of the 3 (for the stores). So yes she does actually qualify for the "working mom" title, regardless of her bank account! Atleast she is trying to relate to the rest of us! Quit acting so jealous! geesh! I don't come from money, but I am thankful for what I have and worked for! No jealousy here!
