Do you utilize any parenting techniques that you’ve found to be really helpful?
My girls are at the age now where they’re [learning] how to express and manage their emotions, and we’ve tried to be really supportive in that process. I was introduced to the Mindful Kids Cards from Little Renegades ($20) through my Fempire series with Ellen DeGeneres. It’s a deck of cards with exercises to do with your kids that focus on things like breathing, meditation and gratitude. Stephen and I have started doing a few cards with the girls right before bed and it’s been great. The kids get a lot out of it, but it also gives us a little extra time together as a family.
Do your kids love everything you cook or are they a bit picky?
I got really lucky. My kids eat just about everything. I’ve got one quirky kid who doesn’t like chocolate, but I’m still working on her. She’ll come around.
How did you settle on their names?
Well, Riley was the only name Stephen and I could agree on, so that’s how that name came about. In general, Stephen and I both really like gender-neutral names, and we thought Ryan sounded androgynous and fierce. Coincidentally, that’s exactly how she turned out! The name Canon we actually picked out on our honeymoon, so we’ve had that one saved up for some time.
If you could go on a mom’s weekend with three people, who would you choose?
