"I try to make our world very much an environment that's just all about being a kid without too much of Hollywood coming into that," she explained. "And I just enjoy it. Honestly I think that there are so many books and opinions about how to be a great mom, and you have good days and bad days, and sometimes you do great and sometimes you could have done better. But I have to say I'm really enjoying having a 10-year-old. She's a remarkable person."
