Kendra Wilkinson Finding Motherhood Hard

It’s not easy taking care of a baby, and former ‘Girls Next Door’ star Kendra Wilkinson knows that first hand.

Kendra has an eleven-month-old son Hank with husband Hank Baskett is struggling with her motherly image.

“Being a mom and everything, it’s hard,” she said.

“Everyone thinks I need to have a turtleneck shirt on and mom pants and act like a total society robot… and that’s not me.”

And having a hubby as a professional football player isn’t helping.  Kendra cares for the baby mostly by herself, making her feel like a single parent.

“Not having Hank around hurts,” she said earlier this month.

“Moving across the country by myself makes me think of my own mom who raised me and my brother alone. Hank’s not going to be there forever, but with him not physically here, I’m a single parent now.

“I fit in well in Philly, and I could relate to all the people, but the West Coast is my home. This is where all my family and friends are.

“When Hank left I felt lonely. He’s my everything. Nobody else can really fill that loneliness.

“We cry. It’s hard, and we aren’t ashamed to cry.

“I’m going to go back to the minus-2-degree weather to spend Thanksgiving, baby Hank’s 1st birthday and Christmas in a small one bedroom hotel room with my husband and son. That’s all that matters to me.”

    Wow, i found it a great gift to be a mom and not hard at all, time to grow up Kendra. I would be horrified if my son found out when he was older that I was acting and dressing (inappropriate at times) as if i was still single. I am not being mean but just honest. Sadly I think you are too young to have a baby, you have some growing up to do. My husband’s son was going with a girl similar to Kendra and thank God she did not get knocked up, she is 24 and still has not grown up (she thought you cleaned the bathroom toilet with a hand towel) I hope for the sake of your baby and husband you will do that. Those two are the most important things in your life.

    “minus-2-degree weather”….ha, this girl has no clue! I’m from MN, where her husband plays football. It may get cold here, but we haven’t seen “minus-2-degree weather” yet this year. We have snow, but not that cold of temps. She needs to quit her complaining about being a mom. It is hard work. If she misses her husband so much, why not move to MN for the few months that he is here and deal with it? Get a clue Kendra, we are all tired of hearing your complaints!

    Oh and this “Everyone thinks I need to have a turtleneck shirt on and mom pants and act like a total society robot… and that’s not me.”. I don’t know what mom’s you have been hanging out with in CA, but none of my friends meet this criteria. Get over yourself!!!
