Canadian Mothers Describe Post-Baby Life And It’s Hilarious

This post will take you from OMG to AWW!

My husband and I have been talking about having children for a while now, but what I love most is hearing young moms talk about pregnancy, diapers and all post-baby stuff. I find their feedback hilarious (but still cute)! So I though it would be fun to interview some beautiful mommies I know and make them share their private lives with my readers.

1. Describe giving birth in 3 words.

Not enough drugs. 

2. Describe sex life after childbirth in one sentence.

Enthusiasm depends on how many hours of sleep you have left.

3. Advice for women who think being a mother is fun and easy.

My words of wisdom to those who think being a mom is fun and easy is to get off Instagram and pay attention to the mom with the new born at the grocery store next time #nofilter.

4. Name 2 things you appreciate now that you didn’t appreciate before having kids.

Going to the bathroom without being bothered and washing my hair and shaving in the same shower session. Those things are really underestimated.

5. Describe your life before and after having a child using movie titles.

Before I had my daughter a good movie tittle would have been “Catch Me If You Can.” I never missed an event, a birthday or a party. I was always out and about. Now I’m more like “Sleeping Beauty” if I have a choice I rather be sleeping and resting then going anywhere but if I do end up going somewhere I’ll most likely pull a “Cinderella.”

Bonus: Name the one thing that makes being a mom worth all the struggles! ❤

The answer is – family. If you know the true meaning of this word you know it’s all worth it.

1. Describe giving birth in 3 words.

Pain, agony and wait for it….. pain.

2. Describe sex life after childbirth in one sentence.

Wellll….. I have a big sexual appetite, so even after a c-section I was almost harassing my husband for booty.

3. Advice for women who think being a mother is fun and easy.

Being a mother is fun and so rewarding. The first few months are hard and babies aren’t always a piece of cake, but after 2-3 months everything just gets easier.

4. Name 2 things you appreciate now that you didn’t appreciate before having kids.

Sleep and silence.

5. Describe your life before and after having a child using movie titles.

I used to live a Wolf of Wall Street type of life and now it has turned into Daddy Day Care…

Hearing my little one’s laughter. It makes me smile every time.

1. Describe giving birth in 3 words.

Best human experience. 

2. Describe sex life after childbirth in one sentence.

Sex life? Just kidding, back to normal but less often. I don’t think about it that much honestly.

3. Advice for women who think being a mother is fun and easy.

Being a mother is a lot of work. You’re raising a little human being. It’s the biggest blessing ever. I love mom life.

4. Name 2 things you appreciate now that you didn’t appreciate before having kids.

 (1) I appreciate my mom. I fully understand all the hard work and everything she’s done and continues to do. (2) I appreciate sleep. Sleeping for at least 10 min – I’d pay top dollar.

5. Describe your life before and after having a child using movie titles.

Ice Age 1 and Ice Age 2. 

Bonus: Name the one thing that makes being a mom worth all the struggles! ❤

Being a mom is worth all the struggle when your kids are your happiness. They return the love in so many ways.

1. Describe giving birth in 3 words.

I would just use the word WOW because it is such a great experience and wonderful feeling but here it goes: Painful, Amazing, Unreal.

2. Describe sex life after childbirth in one sentence.

OMG lol. Let’s say it is not AT ALL the same as before. You are really tired and all you care about is your baby.

3. Advice for women who think being a mother is fun and easy.

It gets fun and easy but it takes adjustment. At first, everything is new for you and your partner so it might be overwhelming at some point. You don’t know if you’re doing it right. Honestly, there is no wrong or right, there is YOUR way of doing it. Stop listening to others who tell you how to do and listen to you mother’s instinct. And having a partner that helps you makes it easier (wink wink Jeremie).

4. Name 2 things you appreciate now that you didn’t appreciate before having kids.

-Staying in! 
-Sleeeeeeeping!!!!

5. Describe your life before and after having a child using movie titles.

Before, I was more the type “Catch me if you can,” always running around, nothing really planned in advance, always down for a last minute trip or activity. With the baby, it’s not the same. Just getting out of the house to do the groceries takes 2 hours minimum. Also, now, if I go out for dinner and leave the baby with my boyfriend, I feel like I belong to the “Bad Moms” Club. Haha!

Bonus: Name the one thing that makes being a mom worth all the struggles! ❤

When you didn’t have much sleep in months, have greasy hair because you didn’t have the time and strenght to wash it, smell like milk because your boobs are overproducting and are leaking, didn’t wear make up for a week and have next level dark circles, your baby in his pyjama full of sh*t (and oh god does that stain) and he just looks at you and smiles. It might sound cheesy, but it is so true.
