When you think of celebrities, it’s easy to feel as though they are some kind of superhumans. They manage to maintain grueling and time-consuming careers while living their own personal lives that often times includes marriage, kids, family, etc. Seeing as half of us cannot even function with more than a few stresses at work on top of our personal problems, it’s no wonder we hold celebs in such high regard. But, there are some who show us that they, too, are only human and they too mess up at everyday things we do–like, raising children. Any parent knows raising a child is not easy, especially your first. You’re often times so worried you’re doing it wrong that you focus more on not doing things wrong than doing anything right. And, of course, you freak out over whether or not other parents are judging you for the way you dress your kid, hold your kid, what you feed your kid, etc. At the end of the day, we’re all just trying to have our kids make it out alive, am I right? There’s nothing like embracing a bit of parental humor when you’re raising young kids. If you can’t laugh about your flaws, you’ll never truly appreciate parenthood. Just as P!nk, who has always been candid and open on social media about how she “beautifully fails” at being a mom.
Recently, P!nk opened up in an interview about her parenting decision to raise her children “gender neutral,” saying:
We are a very label-less household. Last week Willow told me she is going to marry an African woman. I was like: ‘Great, can you teach me how to make African food?’ And she’s like: ‘Sure mama, and we are going to live with you while our house is getting ready.’
I was like ‘what the f***, who are you? Who is paying for this by the way?’”
Many people snapped at P!nk, saying she was “raising her children the wrong way” and “confusing them,” but, P!nk didn’t even bat an eyelash, nor care, what other parents had to say about the way she wishes to raise her two children.
