While this actress looks pretty darn flawless to us, she's making a confession that women everywhere can relate to. In the upcoming issue of InStyle, Kate Hudson reveals that sometimes she feels like "a bad mom."


The actress -- who is mom to Ryder Robinson, 12, and Bingham Bellamy, 4 -- shares some thoughts that, if we're really being honest, most moms feel: 

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.

Oh, Kate, don't be so hard on yourself. We've all been there! How many times have you spent a day traipsing around a zoo or theme park with the kids, coughing up wads of cash for snow cones, and capturing it all on camera? You come home exhausted but feeling like you really created some special memories. Or, maybe you spent the day sitting on the floor playing with dolls or Legos, giving your little guys your undivided attention?

But ... fast-forward a week and you're hanging out in your laundry room pretending that your kids haven't been on their devices for the past hour because you just need a little down time.

It happens to the best of us. As long as your kids aren't in danger while you're spacing out wondering when the next season of The Affair begins, it's okay.

So many moms are too hard on themselves, and often it stems from trying to be so many things simultaneously. You're a mother, but maybe you're also the breadwinner. You're the cook, but you're also a coach. You want to stay in touch with your friends, but you also crave a strong intimate relationship with your partner.

In other words, it's not easy! As long as our kids know they're loved and that we're doing the best we can, that's enough. So maybe you burrow down deeper under your covers when you hear them calling you at 6 a.m. demanding French toast. That doesn't make you a bad mom; it just makes you human.
