Snooki Would Rather Talk Politics Than Get Wasted These Days

But hey, before we get started, I’d like to take back that thing I said about her new hair. I like it. Before, I was just sort of taken aback because of the whole thing with the extensions, but now that we’re seeing the finished project, I think it works. Right?

Ok, now let’s review some quotes from Snooki‘s interview with Anderson Cooper:

On her new life: “I am having a glass of wine talking about politics. It’s way different. Like, so, ‘Who are you voting for?’ I mean me and my friends are like, ‘What are we saying?’ We are getting so old.”

On having a kid: “Having a kid changes your life. Before, I was like, ‘I want to go out. Let’s go to Vegas.’ After having a kid, it’s just like, ‘Oh my god, there’s so much more to life than just going out and having a good time.’ ”

On going out: “Once a month, I go out with my girlfriends because if you don’t go out when you’re a new mom, you’re just going to freak out,” she explains. “You need time for yourself. It’s always so busy with the baby. Sometimes you get stressed or frustrated, so you just need your own time.”

On changing diapers: “I actually love [it]. Even when they are like poopy and gross, it’s fun. He pooped on my hand once and that was awesome. … I have fun doing everything with him.”

That’s actually kind of boring, right? That’s what makes it interesting! We’re so used to hearing Snooki talk about whale sperm and kitty litter and just being a mess in general that it’s so weird to hear her sound like a normal person. But it makes me happy, because she obviously really, really loves being a mom, and I want Snooki to be so very happy.

But hey, was that part about the diapers weird? Moms, do you think getting pooped on is awesome? Can we discuss that part?

  • Okay, so though I’m not changing my own kid’s diapers yet, and my opinion will probably change when I’m doing it ten times a day, I used to love changing my little brother’s and little cousins’ diapers when I was babysitting. I mean, I wouldn’t say I loved getting peed/pooped on, but I liked actually changing the diaper. Something about making them feel more comfortable, perhaps…

  • After having my son, the “love rush” was incredible for the first few months. I’d have cut off my own arm with a steak knife if it meant my baby would be happy. It’s normal, as strange as that may sound, basically it is nature’s way of helping you bond with something that just tore open your body viciously.
