Dear Snooki (Notes on Motherhood)


Dear Snooki,

Congratulations! You’re a mother!

Can you believe it? A baby came out of you. You! Friggin’ awesome, huh? I can’t wait to hear all about and maybe even see (fingers crossed!) every little detail on MTV! I’m sure you were an absolute champ.

I’m sure you’re, you know, totally overwhelmed with love and joy and first photo right offers to consider, but I thought I’d give you a few pieces of advice. From one mom to another!

I know it’s summer and all, but in case you didn’t realize it, babies are supposed to be pale. Yeah, I know he looks pasty and it’s kind of fugly, but no need to start little Lorenzo on self-tanning cream quite yet. Maybe you’ll even luck out and he’ll have jaundice. How awesome would that be?

He’s also probably lacking some hair, I bet. Don’t worry, though, most babies aren’t born with a ton of it. You’ll have lots of time to perfect that adorable mini-pouf we all can’t wait to see!

Speaking of cosmetics, it must be tempting, but try and hold off on the Drakkar Noir or Cool Water for a bit. He probably smells pretty good on his own right now, so you can wait until he eats solids to run around spritzing him!

Now, you did just have a baby, but something tells me you’ll be up and out in no time! You’re going to be leaking some nasty stuff for a while, though, so don’t forget to wear your undies! It would be so embarrassing to leave remnants of your uterine wall all over New Jersey, right?

Best of luck, Snooki!


P.S. Despite what you may have been told, breastfeeding doesn’t act as birth control. Thought you should know!

    I told myself I would never read another thing written about Snooki and her pregnancy but I couldn’t resist. Amen to the whole “please don’t leak your uterus all over town” part.

    Ps — Snooki, right now you and the baby are different colors. That is NORMAL. Please do not worry. I know the incubator looks like a tiny tanning bed, but that is not what it is for so please leave the NICU. Thank you and congratulations.

    Having never had a baby (yet), I gagged a little at “remnants of your uterine wall”. lol I’d heard that from my friends but oh…I am not looking forward to that!

    And, try not to blow all of your Jersey Shore earnings on diamond studded binkies. I’m sure you’ll be doing the Jersey Turnpike with baby Lorenzo in tow in no time.

    There’s no need to cross your fingers. I’m sure we will see every minute of her transition into motherhood, knowing how much Snooks loves to be on camera! In fact, a Dish coworker told me that she insisted on filming the whole event for her show, “Snooki and JWOW”! As much as I hate to admit it, I will be tuning in to watch. At least I have the Hopper DVR, so I can satisfy my curiosity to see Mama Snooks and barely put a dent on the tons of recording space available to me. Admit it; you’re going to tune in to watch too! ;)

    OMG! This is great! I have a feeling her baby will be very well pampered with lots of material items…as for being taken care of….I have a feeling the baby daddy and grandparents will be doing a lot of that. I think Snooki may go back to her partying Jersey Shore ways now that the baby is born. I know she said she wasn’t living in the Jersey Shore house to avoid the hot tub and alcohol. But now that she is no longer pregnant I think she’ll be out drinking and hot tubbing soon enough. But who knows, she could leave all that behind and become a really great mom too. I guess we will all see.
