Washington: Jessica Alba has revealed that being a busy mother who doesn’t have the time to change clothes every time her little daughter spills up on her, she has taken to using scarves to cover up baby sick stains. The ‘Spy Kids 4’ actress - who has daughter Honor, three, and Haven, seven months, with husband Cash Warren - admitted she uses the accessory to hide the messes that come with motherhood.
“I wear scarves, mostly because it’s an accessory that can dress up an outfit, but it’s also because if my baby has an accident - and I’m holding the baby - I can cover that accident up! So I’m not walking around with a big puke stain or poo stain on my shirt,” a website has quoted her as telling a magazine.
“Knowing that I don``t have time to go home and change, and really, I don``t have the space, time, or capacity to pick out five different changes of outfits for my car - it``s enough to remember my baby``s change of clothes,” she said.
Alba hasn’t let parenting slow her down, and admits she is finding it slightly easier second time around.
“I think going from no kids to one kid was the biggest adjustment. Once my older one was out of diapers and was a little bit more self-sufficient, I found that having another one was easier than it would have been if I had two in diapers,” she said.
“I think the toughest part is probably just your time. You still want to spend time with both of them and you find you have less time for yourself. Once Honor is down for her nap then I have the baby and I get to spend time with Haven, where I used to be cooking or doing emails or reading or talking to a girlfriend. So now it’s about organising my time and trying to be as efficient as possible. You know you’re a mother when you don’t sleep anymore!” she added.
