It’s not easy having a baby, as many a new mother will attest. But it seems Kim Kardashian is finding out just how hard it is to balance her working life with the needs of her five-month old daughter, North West.
Ask many new mothers what they miss the most about their previous life without baby and I’ll bet the first thing that pops out of their mouths is “sleep.” So it’s no wonder that Kim finally put down the Instagram selfies and apparently, North, to go find some “me” time. But isn’t that what she did before North’s miraculous birth?
CDL has startling pics below of Kim looking like a shadow of her former glamorous self. On Thursday, Kim decided she had to get out of the house before she went mad, and decided to head out to lunch at La Scala in Beverly Hills with BFF Brittny Gastineau. Then Kim headed to the beauty salon, probably aware she needed a touch up.
The jaunt was sorely needed no doubt, for Kim was sporting quite the pair of luggage under her famous eyes. Newborns are notoriously fickle sleepers. They either sleep all night, or they scream the house down insuring you don’t get any shut-eye either! For Kim, who takes obvious pride in her beauty, this is probably the worst thing that could ever happen to her. I mean, vampire facials and regular Botox injections will only go so far. You have to get your beauty sleep sometime!
So Kimmie decided to put North into the very capable hands of her nanny, and went off to have girl-time with her BFF, Brittny. Poor Kim must have had a hell of a night, for she dispensed with the designer duds, and wore a simple “I’m a mother” uniform of torn jeans and T-shirt. She did however, take the time to remind us that she’s a Kardashian thru and thru by wearing a pair of strappy heeled sandals.
Kim was probably so happy to get away from posing for selfies and intermittent diaper changes, that she greeted the world with a face surprisingly free of her usual war paint. Actually, I think I like her better this way, the natural beauty of a mom sorely in need of a girl’s day out.
Though I think it’s a shame Kim has to do all this on her own. I can almost guarantee that her fiancé, Kanye West, isn’t losing his beauty sleep! Men never do, do they?
After what was probably a light meal given she’s trying to get back that girlish figure, Kim and Brittny made a side trip to a beauty supply store. Restocking the war chest no doubt, and building up a supply of eye gel for those all-nighters with little North. I can’t really blame poor Kim for putting her baby girl aside and getting some fresh air with a good friend. But hasn’t she been doing just that?
I mean Kim took a sabbatical to Paris while still breastfeeding, took that notorious Instagram booty pic, and has made time to sashay up and down various red carpets showing off her newly svelte physique. Kim has also been wowing us with pics of her jaunts through Magic Mountain, her extravagant engagement soiree with new fiancé and baby daddy Kanye, and filming episodes of her reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
So it’s not as if she’s been chained down in a dungeon somewhere with an iron mask over her expensive face. Well, maybe she has. Maybe it’s the latest thing in age-defying magic. I can give Kimmie some slack because it does appear as if she’s been caring for little North herself. But I think she’s had a little help. Most mothers in Beverly Hills can afford the luxury, for the rest of us regular schmoes, you can only dream of a minute to yourself.
If you’re Kim Kardashian, having a baby means not having to give up what you love the most: yourself.
