Kim Kardashian considers herself a strict mom to baby North. She revealed to DailyMailOnline that despite being playful and loving, she is always serious when it comes to nap-times and not sleeping with mommy and daddy.
Referencing the difference between herself and sister Kourtney, the reality star quipped, ‘Like Kourtney’s style is where her kids sleep in bed with her, so especially with the third baby coming – they’re going to need a bigger bed or they’re going to need some other rules”.
North, whose mother is never shy to post pictures of online, just celebrated her first birthday on Sunday. The couple kept it mellow but plan to go big over the weekend. “It was Father’s Day, so we hung out, we went to a few museums in New York. We just had a really low-key birthday – so it’s kind of her birthday week”, Kim said. The actual party will take place in L.A. But only at the one year mark, North is very lucky to have a working mom who is always around. Kim described her long-running reality T.V. job, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, as the perfect job because she can always be by North’s side.
“She’s always there. You might not see her face, but she’s in there. But for her own privacy, we just don’t have her in that much.” She went on to add, ‘The beauty of having a reality show – especially as we film at the house – is that the baby’s there. So I actually get to be with her – as opposed to if I had a job in an office, where I couldn’t be in the same room with her while I was working. So I actually feel really lucky to have that advantage to spend so much time with her. I get to see her every single day. I’m there with the baby – it’s kind of perfect. It’s the best job.”
But of course, Kim also notes the importance of making time for herself. “Sometimes I see a lot of my friends just get taken over by their kids and their life, and that’s great, but if you don’t spend a little bit of time – whether it’s two hours a day, or one day a week to and visit with your friends. It really helps a lot.” Part of her me-time routine remains the morning work-out. Kim said that working out makes her feel her best, “you want to feel your best so you can give to everyone else.”
So the new wife, who married Kanye West just last month in a beautiful Italian wedding, is ‘keeping up’ with her show, her hobbies and friends, hubby, and baby (and rules for baby!). It’s a full plate but Kim seems to balance it all so well. ‘To prioritise is really important and you have to be an organised person to get it all done and make sure you have enough time for everyone – for my husband and my baby and for work,” she said.
