Jessica Alba knows a thing or two about fashion, but when it comes to parenting, she blows all the moms out of the water with her skills!!
And to prove how much of an AH-MAYZING mama she truly is, she shared info about her fam in InStyle's February issue.
Here are the HIGHlights:
On being everywhere at once:
“Sometimes I can take multitasking to a level of insanity. Then all of a sudden the bath is too high and I’ve forgotten to give my daughter the thing she needs for school.”
On how much she loves her hubby Cash Warren:
“I just knew when I met him that I was going to know him forever. It was weird. He instantly felt like family. I’d never felt like that with anyone. We got each other. We’re kindred spirits. On a weekend Cash might say, ‘Go get your nails done with a girlfriend. Haven is down for a nap and Honor and I will play. I know you work hard. You deserve some time for yourself.’ That, to me, is romantic. He’s saying, ‘You matter,’ and that I’m more than just the mother of the kids or the wife who goes out to events with him.”
On being a stickler about everything:
“Before I had kids, I was very responsible and serious. I used to be all about controlling my environment. Everything had to be just so. Now my idea of perfection is different. You can label bins and have a place for stuff, but when the kids go into the playroom, you’re not going to say, ‘We can’t paint because how are we going to clean it up?’”
On observing her ancestry:
“When Cash and I moved into our family house, we collected hundreds of pictures of our aunties, great aunties, moms and dads, grandmas and grandpas, and sisters and brothers. Then we mounted them in the foyer of our home, covering the wall from top to bottom. Our daughters are continually reminded of where they come from.”
Well isn't that sweet?!?
Miz Alba sure is a wonderful mommy that deserves praise over and over. But it's not like she's missing out on appreciation because Cash seems to be doing a great job in that department!!
