Kelly Clarkson Has Spoken Honestly About Her Biggest Failure
Kelly Clarkson has revealed she feels ‘mom guilt’.
The hitmaker, who has two children, River Rose, 2 and six-month-old Remington Alexander, wither husband Brandon Blackstock, says she is worried about being able to ‘juggle’ her family and career.
She said "It's hard. You have to juggle everything. While I love music, my family comes first. There are days where s**t hits the fan, and I'm crying because there's not enough time to do everything. But that's any mom. It's a hard thing to take care of children. You're moulding lives. You don't want to suck at it."
"I'm bad at time management. I definitely feel mom guilt a lot. I think every good mom does, right? I think I have mom guilt too because my mom didn't have help and I have help. I feel like, 'Why can't I do it all?' But you can't. That's dumb."
"I do so much for them, and I do bend over backwards. But it doesn't matter. If you're a mom, you want to be with your kid every day. You don't want to miss a moment, and you want her to need you and want you and not want somebody else."
The 34-year-old singer is well aware it can be tricky to get a perfect balance but says it is worth the struggle ‘’99 percent of the time.’’
She told People magazine: "I will definitely screw up a bunch, but I am gonna try not to. I think it's really important, not only for my little girl [but our other children too], to see that a woman is capable of kicking ass while also being a kickass mom. And that's a hard thing.
"I'm not going to B.S. you. That's hard. There are days when I cry, and I'm like, I don't know if I can handle all this or get it all done or juggle. But at the end of the day, like 99 percent of the time, it's awesome, and it's worth it."
