I'm always in awe of women who have second kids -- how do they do it? Having a toddler is a lot of work. Having a new baby is too. So to have one of each -- and still keep your sanity -- is very impressive.
Here's what celebrity moms Sheryl Crow, Samantha Bee, and Jennifer Garner say about adding a baby to the toddler mix.
- Turn on the T.V. Samantha Bee, mom to 4-year-old Piper Bee-Jones and 2-year-old Fletcher Bee-Jones (with a third on the way), says letting your kid watch television can be a big help. "[With]your first child, you never want them to watch TV or have any bad influences. If you have a second child, you immediately say, 'Can I get my first child interested in movies of any kind? Because I need a moment to myself. I absolutely need to turn the TV on right now because I have to go take care of this other child in, addition to taking care of myself.'" -- The Frisky
- Don't Sweat the Small Stuff. Sheryl Crow, mom to 3-year-old Wyatt and 6-week-old Levi James, says she learned some valuable lessons the first time around. “I’m not sweating the small stuff,” the singer says. “I'm easier going. I’m applying all the mistakes I made with Wyatt to being more relaxed with Levi." -- Celebrity Babies
- It's Crazy! When Seraphina Affleck entered big sister Violet Affleck's family, mom Jennifer Garner said life with two kids was crazy. "It's like having 10 kids. You have one and you think you start to know what you're doing and you have it under control. And then you have the other one and it all just goes to hell in a hand basket!" -- Celebrity Baby Scoop
