“Its 6am and I’m awake and completely unannoyed. I feel great. My baby is happy and healthy and I am no longer a host for a force stronger than me,” wrote singer Kelis just three days after giving birth to her first-born son Knight Jones.
Although she has been a mother for less than a week, Kelis says that she is “in awe of the whole process” of being a mom.
“Its breath taking. I had no reverence for pregnant women or really mothers before my experience. Not that I didn’t care but it truly is something unrelatable until it becomes you. It’s life, larger than life. I’m in awe of the whole process. And of course now like every other mother, madly in love with this little guy. I don’t know when or if I will ever sleep normally again but for now I’m just happy to not miss anything while sleeping again.”
Indeed the singer is not ready to miss a moment of being with Knight, so much so that she doesn’t want to share her baby boy with anyone, not even the baby nurse she hired.
“So I hired a baby nurse, for 24hr help. Everyone told me I needed one, which I get a new baby is constant work…. So I have this very nice woman here on her first day for work. But I am feeling like I’m under surveillance and I really don’t wanna share my perfect little 3 day Old marshmallow with anyone. I can’t say that after a week or two of no sleep I will be in desperate need of some relief ,but right now its just too soon. Everything he does entertains me lol n I don’t mind any of it. I think he smells like pie n I never wanna share pie! Lol. Yeah I think I’m gonna send the nice lady home n try again with her next week.”
