"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 told The New York Times. "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 added. "She's a remarkable person."

ET spoke to Katie in October, when she talked about dedicating her directorial debut, All We Had, to her only child.

"She gets a special thanks for everything, [for] every job I do, because she makes every day great and awesome and better," the former Dawson's Creek star said. "I know myself better because of her, so she'll always get a special thanks."
