Thank you, Hilary Duff!
This parenting story is just what we needed today!
The Younger star is about to pop with baby #2, but before that baby girl comes she was reminded just what a good job she’d done on her big brother.
In a new interview with InStyle, Hilary tells a story about a bad day she had parenting, the kind we’ve all had — and how Luca Comrie came along and made it all better!
Ch-ch-check out the full story (below)!
“He’s really a sweet, sensitive boy. I’ll tell you something, this happened last year. When I’m filming Younger I’m [in NYC] for four months, and I try to make it home almost every weekend to see him because when he’s in school, he can’t miss. So I happened to be home on a Friday or Monday or something like that, and I was just scrambling. It was just one of those mornings where everything that could have gone wrong, was wrong, and we were running late. I was burning the toast over and over again, and I think I had literally been through three pieces of toast. He was finishing his homework, and it was just crazy, and I was like, ‘Oh my God, I just suck right now.’ And I said it out loud.
And he was like, ‘What?’ I was like, ‘I’m just I’m burning everything, I’m burning the toast, and I can’t do anything right right now.’ And he said, ‘You don’t suck, you’re the best mommy. You’re doing the best you can do. And I really like burnt toast.’
I was like, ‘You are the sweetest child. I can’t even deal with you, thank you so much. I don’t know what I did to deserve you.’ He can just be really sweet in that way. He knows that I would never let him say something like that about himself. It was actually out of character for me to say it about myself where he could hear me, but I was pulling my hair out. But he said, ‘You don’t suck, you’re doing the best you can do.’ So sweet.”
It’s what we all need to hear sometimes, dontcha think?
Go tell someone they don’t suck today!
