Joanna Gaines is a busy woman. Aside from being a home-reno goddess and writing another book, she’s also mom to five ultra-cute kiddos. We tried to make pancakes last week and we’re still exhausted. How on earth does Gaines have time to do it all?

Simple. Gaines has a secret weapon: her adorable 4-month-old son, Crew.  

In an interview with People, Jo revealed that having Crew put a little pep in her step. “It woke me up a little bit,” she said. “Life was doing its thing, and this baby—typically you feel tired, but this baby, he’s just like my second wind.”

So there you have it: Who needs a double espresso when you’ve got a cooing infant to keep you energized?
