Now Alba calmer, rational motherApril 16th, 2012 - 6:25 pm ICT by IANS
Los Angeles, April 16 (IANS) Actress Jessica Alba believes she is more rational and calm as a mother with her younger daughter, Haven.
The 30-year-old has two daughters - Honor, three, and Haven, eight months - with husband Cash Warren. She says she has evolved with the birth of her second child, reports contactmusic.com.
“I feel like most of my irrational, overprotective, and weary new mom behaviour evolved into a more easygoing, laid-back approach with my second child,” Alba posted on her blog.
“I’ve never been a true helicopter parent, but I’ve definitely stayed awake for endless hours doing research on everything I could do wrong. I often made more mistakes trying not to make any mistakes,” she added.
Having learnt to take each day as it comes, she admits parenthood is a lot more enjoyable without the worry.
“With Haven I’m more relaxed. I try not to let every cough or bump on the head freak me out. This calm attitude has definitely made adjusting to life with two kids easier and more fun.
“It may feel impossible trying to juggle it all, so don’t hold yourself to the unrealistic standards of being a supermom,” she further posted.
