Celebaby: Kim Kardashian Loves Nap Time With Baby North

Call me an old cynic, but I'm not buying Kim Kardashian's latest claims about motherhood.

The new mum and reality star reckons nap time with her one-year-old daughter, North, is her favourite part of the day.

Hello magazine reports that Kim said in a recent interview:

"'I love being a mom!' said Kim. 'It's the most rewarding feeling! I really love every phase! Just the way my daughter laughs with me, all of the small things in life you appreciate!'"

 "The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 33, added that the highlight of her day was nap time with baby North." 

"'We cuddle and fall asleep holding each other, said Kim. 'It's my favourite time just snuggling with her.'"

And as if to prove her point, Kim took to her Instagram account to share the cute snap, above, with her fans and followers. She and captioned it simply:

"Night!"

I've no idea whether or not Kim has an army of nannies on hand to help take care of baby North, but I am deeply suspicious of the picture painted of Kim wafting around cuddling her baby daughter all afternoon, not to mention the suggestion that nap time is this gloriously zen experience.

Er, not in my house, it's not. In fact that has certainly never been the case during any of my babies' nap times.

I tend to view nap time a little differently, it's safe to say. By the time it finally rolls around, my crawling ten month old baby has usually managed to wreak havoc in virtually every room of our house, so I practically shoo her off to bed whilst trying not to hyperventilate about the mess or how I'm going to get it tidied up before she wakes up and is ready for round two.

Then there's the whole rigmarole of actually getting her to fall asleep. If I'm not sterilising and making bottles whilst trying to distract a tired, wailing baby then I'm giving myself back strain as I attempt to jiggle her to sleep and fend off her efforts to pull my hair / stick her fingers up my nose / grab my glasses. And that all happens to the not-so-soothing soundtrack of me singing Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star in an ever more frenzied pitch.

Then, when she's finally asleep, I have approximately 90 minutes in which to catch up on housework, restore order to the rooms she has wrecked, have a shower, squeeze in a day's work and - if I am really lucky - have a cup of tea while it's still actually warm.

So nah, I'm not buying it, Kim. Nap time is so not the average mother's favourite time of the day. That's much more likely to be the magical hour after bedtime which we all so lovingly call wine o'clock...

    Ha, I'm with you on this and totally feel you! Great post. Having a cuppa while it's still actually warm kind of sums up my maternity leave (which was 4 years ago for me)...x
