Pink Shares Her 'Worst Moment Being a Mom' & We Totally Get It

pinkApparently even celebs with a reputation for being "tough" are vulnerable to mommy guilt. Pop star Pink talks about her struggles with the "it's all my fault" feeling in the new issue of Glamour magazine, and it turns out rich and famous kids fall down just as often as any other tot. In fact, she says her “worst parenting moment” was when 2-year-old daughter Willow fell and got a concussion:

"That was the worst day of my life. And what do they say? 'Kids fall.' Welcome to parenthood. I thought, I can't handle this. I'm fitting her for a bubble." We've all been there!!

And we've all experienced the post-injury parental paranoia Pink admits to having after Willow's concussion:

“Every time she bounces on the bed, I see stitches. Being a parent is a Jedi mind f**k. It’s also the raddest thing ever.”

So true. Becoming a parent means experiencing fear and guilt on a whole new level -- but the same goes for more positive feelings, too, like joy and love. The trick, I've found, is figuring out how to keep the fear and guilt from overshadowing the good stuff. It's not an overnight process, as Pink is no doubt learning, but eventually she'll be able to watch Willow jump on the bed without imagining an imminent trip to the Emergency Room ... maybe.

What was your worst parenting moment?

When my DS was just over a year old, he's lips kept going blue for no known reason. One time he work and his lips were blue and his skin was very cold to touch and this was in the middle of summer where its about 100 degrees outside. 
I rushed him to the ER and they did so many test adn they did a IV on him adn it kille dme since neither one of my kids had to ever do that yet.

Till this day they could neevr figrue out why he's lips were going blue. They did tons of test and they all checked out.
