Parenting thoughts

Celebrities thoughts on parenting

“Having children is like living in a frat house — nobody sleeps, everything's broken, and there's a lot of throwing up.”
- Ray Romano

"One surprise of motherhood for me was how little control I have. I thought it would be a blissful romance with me at the helm, cuddling this little creature. It's been bittersweet and humbling to let her lead and to not try to be perfect myself."
- Amanda Peet

"Wyatt [my adopted son] is definitely all mine. Little souls find their way to you whether they're from your womb or someone else's."
- Sheryl Crow

"When I hear people talk about juggling, or the sacrifices they make for their children, I look at them like they're crazy, because 'sacrifice' infers that there was something better to do than being with your children."
- Chris Rock

"I'm really clear about my priority in life — it's being a mom ... I love doing films, but I wouldn't like to do that more than I'd like to be my daughter's mother."
- Teri Hatcher

"You know how parents rattle on to you about, 'Oh, you won't believe your life will never be the same,' and you think, Why can't these people just get over it? All they're doing is yakking about their kids. It's such a bore. And then you have kids and you just want to do the same thing."
- Uma Thurman
