What Kate Hudson Has In Common With All Of Us
There are very few times in my life when I can say that I have something in common with a celebrity, but thanks to Kate Hudson, I most definitely have something in common with a celebrity.
And what is that golden child Hudson and I share, you may ask? Well it's simple–we both feel like bad moms.
In an interview with In Style magazine, Hudson confessed that she is sometimes worried about her less-than-stellar mothering skills.
“Some days I feel like I should win best mom of the day award, and some days I find myself doing strange things that don’t have any real purpose, in faraway corners in my house, and I realize I am literally and deliberately hiding from my children,” she wrote. Ha! Kate, if you only knew the lengths I have gone to hide from my children.
Among the other failings she listed as a mom, Kate admitted that she hates doing homework with her kids, indulges in The Bachelor with the rest of us, and that she loves to do non-traditional hobbies, such as hunt. “But I don’t want to apologize for that anymore. Being both already comes at an emotional cost, without adding society’s antiquated idea of the traditional roles of man and woman in the home,” she said firmly.
I've always liked Kate Hudson and to me, this just made me love her even more. The fact that she still struggles with a lot of the same things us mere mortal moms do–in not really knowing if we're doing a good enough job, if we just want to run away from our kids sometimes, if we secretly hate our kids' math homework, and if we are tired of prescribing to the “roles” we think women should live up to–is very comforting to hear. Not even all the money in the world can fix the hard parts of motherhood and I love that she's real about that.
Now, if someone could just tell me how I could look so effortless cool and chic while wearing her athletic line, that would be great. Because when I work out, I look more like an elephant giving birth who got caught in a hurricane of sweat. Also, you're welcome for that visual.
Now it's you're turn to spill–do you ever feel like a bad mom?
