"I’m pretty low-maintenance, but I like my time to myself, and once you have a child, you have to fight for it. I remember the first long bath I took [after Ptolemy‘s birth] was such a moment. Because a lot of the time you’re in the shower, and if that baby cries, you’ve got to turn off the water and go!"

            — Gretchen Mol tells InStyle how life has changed since welcoming her baby boy, who just celebrated his first birthday.

I heard Jessica Alba say in an interview that she used this product called Abs in a Box to get her pre-baby body back. Then I saw these products by a company called It Cosmetics http://www.itcosmetics.com on the Today Show so I thought I would try them. I TOTALLY look like I’ve lost 15 lbs instantly and I feel like I’m finally able to get that in-shape look I’ve been working so hard for in the gym. I used their ABS IN A BOX and SMOKIN’ HOT LEGS. I am now going to order the MY BEAUTIFUL BREASTS kit.

Just thought I’d share this GREAT find!!!

Ugh, I know. I used to bring my son into the bathroom with me, but now I can have him entertained by the TV (bad mommy!)since he’s into sesame street now. I always have my ears peeled listening for anything out of the ordinary while I’m trying to enjoy my shower!
