TIA MOWRY
Talks Motherhood, Celebrating Birthdays And Her New Sitcom

Tia Mowry

This month we get a double dose of actress and celebrity mom Tia Mowry-HardrictTia’s new movie “Baggage Claim” premiered and her new TV show “Instant Mom” is debuting on Nick at Nite.  She sat down with Essence magazine to chat about returning to a sitcom and dishes on motherhood.

Tia says she can relate to her new character “Stephanie” when it comes to motherhood, “Just trying too hard. I think when we’re new moms you have this perfect schedule and you want everything to go perfectly. You have everything laid out for your kid, whether it’s bottles, pampers, or clothes. You just want everything to go right. So I think that’s kind of what I’ve applied to my character. Her optimism and enthusiasm about being a new mom is how I was.”

Tia shares that she’s happy to be back to doing sitcoms (she also has a reality show with sister Tamera) because she likes the stability in schedules.  “I love this schedule. It’s great for families because it’s very predictable and the hours aren’t that long, especially when you’re working with kids you have to get in and get out. I’m like, ‘Oh, we’re done? I get to come home and be with my son?’”

This summer Tia celebrated her 35th birthday and did it in a low-key way.  “I was with my husband who was filming Transcendence in New Mexico with Johnny Depp and Morgan Freeman. My son’s birthday is June 28th so we celebrated it together and we went to this amazing place. It’s an organic lavender farm in Albuquerque and it was just nice and quiet. We like doing normal things because our lives are so hectic and busy. I value normalcy and so to be able to just bring it down and focus on being a normal family, that’s what we did and I enjoyed it so much.”

TIA MOWRY
Talks Attachment Parenting Decision

Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation's 24th Annual 'A Time For Heroes' Event

On last night’s episode of Tia & Tamera, the sisters talked about their differences in parenting style.  Tia Mowry shares with Momtastic that she didn’t start out with the intention of being an “attachment parent”, it just fit her approach to raising her son Cree.

Tia shares, “I never felt like I specifically made a decision to practice “attachment parenting,” it wasn’t like I said: I am going to be this type of parent over that type of parent. It was something that just naturally took place after I had my son, Cree. When I had Cree, breastfeeding for me was a no-brainer; it was something that I truly enjoyed. The bonding experience was unbelievable and I felt so attached to my son.”

Along with co-sleeping and breastfeeding, the celebrity mom enjoys having Cree at her side always, but does feel the pressure and judgement from others.  “This parenting style has benefited my relationship with Cree, mostly due to my work schedule. Being a working mom, my hours are crazy, so I do enjoy doing things like letting Cree sleep with me in bed and taking him everywhere with me. On the other hand, I do experience struggles with this type of parenting, and it is mostly based in the judgement of others. I know I get judged by a lot of people, however what I believe is there is no right or wrong way to parent a child. I think a mother must do whatever is best for her and for her family.”

Did you watch last night’s episode? I love the Mowry sisters aren’t afraid to share their different views and can agree to disagree on things – like parenting approaches.
