Angelina Jolie has admitted that being a parent is not really not easy.
The mother of six opened up in an interview with British Vogue saying that she doesn't view herself as a traditional stay-at-home mum as she was 'was never very good at sitting still.
Her children have helped her in this journey of being a good and present mother.
Well, I was never very good at sitting still.
"Even though I wanted to have many children and be a mom, I always imagined it kind of like Jane Goodall, travelling in the middle of the jungle somewhere. I didn't imagine it in that true, traditional sense. I feel like I'm lacking in all the skills to be a traditional stay-at-home mom. I'm managing through it because the children are quite resilient, and they're helping me, but I'm not good at it at all."
Angelina and Brad Pit ended things and they have been battling over finances and the custody of their children. Which has not been easy for her.
"The past few years have been pretty hard. I've been focusing on healing our family. It's slowly coming back, like the ice melting and the blood returning to my body. I'm looking forward to my fifties - I feel that I'm gonna hit my stride in my fifties. Though we were on the trampoline the other day, and the children said, ''No, Mom, don't do that. You'll hurt yourself.'' And I thought, ''God, isn't that funny?'' She told Vogue
