Sarah Jessica Parker finds being a mother to three children ''crazy'' and admits it takes a lot of organisation to prepare for the day ahead
Sarah Jessica Parker thinks being a mother is like a "military operation".
The 'Sex and the City' actress - who has nine-month-old twin daughters Marion Loretta and Tabitha Hodge and seven-year-old son James Wilkie with her husband Matthew Broderick - admits her mornings are so hectic, she feels like she is in both a comedy sketch and army operation at the same time.
She said: "Honestly, it's funny. It's comedic. It really is. There is so much organisation and advanced planning that happens, like a military operation and with a seven year old who has needs, too. They're different. The bag is less but it's crazy."
The 45-year-old star has also admitted she was amazed by how dramatically her life changed when she went from being a mother-of-one to suddenly having three children.
She explained: "There's no sugar- coating it. It's wonderful. It's what we wanted. We didn't want twins but we wanted a bigger family and it's a blessing. It's a thrill. But it couldn't be more different. I mean, it's daunting in the beginning with all the paraphernalia: the diapers, the ointments, the bottles, the pacifiers. the list just goes on. With two more, you're carrying suitcases. It's hilarious.
"They're as different as they can be. It's wonderful. It's good for them, that they will be their own people."
Sarah has also admitted she doesn't mind being a working mother as long as her children are "healthy" and "loved".
She told new! magazine: "I see a lot of working women all over the world having to juggle those two things. The most important things to me are my children and their well-being, and that they are loved and that I have created a life for them that is healthy and nurturing. If that is the case then I can make the choice to work. If that is not the case and the situation doesn't allow for that, then I don't work, so I try to make choices based on that."
