Megan Fox is the co-parent, with Brian Austin Green, of two sons!
One is 21-month-old Noah and the other is 4-month-old Bodhi!
And although they are precious, they also are a lot of hard work!
A realization which has hit Megan Fox hard!!! Here's what she recently said:
"Before you have kids you really do not understand how much work it is and how consuming it is. And then you have one and you're like, 'Oh my God, my baby is my whole world.' Every moment of the day is dedicated to this one baby and then all of a sudden you have two babies! Their needs are so different."
While some parents are able to get their personal errands things done with the help of television — Megan doesn't let her kids watch any TV!
"It's really hard to manage because I also don't let them watch TV. It's not like I'm going to sit Noah in front of the television so I can take care of Bodhi. I have to figure out how to incorporate Noah into the process and have him help me take care of Bodhi and make sure he doesn't get jealous and make sure nobody's neglected and everybody's needs are being met. As a mom it's hard because I don't feel like I'm ever giving either one of them 100 percent of my attention or 100 percent of myself, so I carry a lot of guilt. Do they each understand how special they are and how much I love them? And are they understanding that they're unique? It's hard to make each one feel like an individual when you have to raise them together and manage them together all of the time. So that's the most difficult part."
Aww! We don't think she should feel guilty!
Sometimes it can be hard, but it's okay to let your child have some alone time — to try and figure stuff out for themselves, you know? Especially her older one!
Speaking of Noah — he's starting to really become a great big brother, according to Megan. She said:
"Noah's starting to interact with Bodhi. He'll try to comfort him sometimes when he cries and he'll do the 'sh sh sh sh.' And to watch him do that melts my heart. I'm excited for the future, to see them be brothers and be best friends and I know that there's gonna be lots of fighting, but there's also gonna be lots of hugs and kisses. It's sort of mind-blowing to think about how amazing the future is going to be with them."
Despite their cuteness - her children causes Megan A LOT of anxiety! She said:
"Even during my [first] pregnancy, I had no idea how worried I was going to be for the rest of my life. From the moment I gave birth to Noah, that was the first time I was like, 'I love something so much that I will never be the same again. I will never be relaxed again because I will always be worried about him and hoping that he is ok and safe and happy."
Aww! She's SO passionate about her kids! And also passionate about making sure the structure she's built for them is enforced!
Here's what she said:
"I don't watch television because it's just too much it overwhelms me. I just can't deal with it. But I do let them watch movies. Movies are so nostalgic and they can remind us of these amazing times in our childhood. I remember going to the theater to see movies with my dad or my mom and those are special moments for me. One day they're gonna watch television. I can't keep it from them forever. My intention is to keep it away as long as possible or to introduce it through Apple TV so they're not being exposed to the commercials constantly. My goal is no computers, no cell phones until at least eighth grade."
The eighth grade???
We have a feeling that goal is NOT going to happen! Maybe Megan can keep them from computers until the fifth or sixth grade, but usually after that they're going to be using them at school.
Still, we can appreciate that Megan wants everything and more for her two boys.
Again we don't think she should feel guilty. She seems to be doing a great job!!!
