Is Katie Holmes Just a Loving Mom or Going Over the Top?

These days all Katie Holmes seems to want to talk about is her amazing marriage and family life. While we understand being a gushing mom, especially when it comes to sweet Suri, lately it all feels a little repetitive. At the Glamour V Day Luncheon yesterday, Katie talked more about her little one, calling Suri, "a very strong woman" and "magical." So tell us — is Katie just a loving mom or is she going over the top?

No problem saying how wonderful her baby is....but thinking of your toddler in adult terms does not sound like healthy parenting to me.

You people need to get a life. You KNOW absolutely NOTHING about these people. All you know is the information the media sends out - funny how anything positive or good is cut to shreds or just not reported or slanted to be something vile.

how long until she goes off the deep end as well? she is way too managed and handled and styled. know how I am sure? the moment she opens her mouth to speak, nothing comes out but overused adjectives and cliches. Scientology weirdness aside, this young woman is not in control of her own life.

I think her recent life changes happened too fast for her.

I agree with di_2526. Also, since Scientologists believe children are little adults, I can let Katie's use of "woman" slide. But to refer to Suri as a "strong woman" implies, to me anyway, that Suri has the type of character to overcome adversity in life. I find this wrong in so many ways. 1. You can't make that assumption of a 2-year old, especially one born to a life of great privilege. 2. Suir's biggest problem is growing up in the spotlight of so many paparazzi -- far from being an adversity, IMO. I would be sad for her except it seems her parents are perfectly fine, if not encouraging, this public lifestyle. 3. Suri seems to have everyone doting over her: press, parents, etc. She has a loving mother (and possibly father) and seems to be growing up in a very rich (in more ways than one) household. 4. She's only 2; she is still developing and learning. Her life is filled with toys, educational devices and games, presents and people cooing over her. She still has a lot to learn before any such claims can be made about her ability to handle life's lessons. She can't possibly be a strong woman. I can't even give Katie the benefit of the doubt and assume she meant Suri has strong will, which IMO for a 2-year old means that she's just stubborn. Furthermore, I do agree that watching a child's development can seem magical, but Katie MUST stop using the same adjectives to describe her daughter, husband and marriage. She's using the exact same adjectives Tom used to describe her and their relationship when they were dating -- monotonous, and automatic responses. Maybe this is their way to keep certain details of their lives private? If so, why don't they just say "no comment" and ATTEMPT to lead less private lives. Sheesh.

btw, what's with all the posts comparing katie holmes to audrey hepburn? seriously, you must be joking! audrey hepburn had style when she was too poor to buy it, she & her mother showed strength in escaping Nazi oppression, she showed respect towards the people around her regardless of station in life, and she lived a real life with real love & loss. katie holmes is a twenty-something lackluster actress who married a controlling old man who was himself manipulated by another older women (mimi rogers recruited him into l. ron's tax shelter, and he recruited katie into it). her "style" is part of the smoke & mirrors show. what made audrey hepburn an icon? it wasn't a black dress on a thin frame. any fool can do that. it was the woman inside the dress that made her stand out.

what a bizarro thing to say. i just want to grab those bony shoulders and shake some sense into this crazy girl. ...then again, her middle-aged cult recruiter hubby probably already does that once a week before shoving an e-meter in front of her.

I'm all for Katie enjoying her daughter. But, wouldn't we like to see some form of independence from Katie again? It just seems all a little too planned out and perfect.

If I had married a very wealthy man and had no more financial worries, I'm sure I would be just as happy! It just seems like she's trying to make it more than it is. I know women in my day-to-day life who speak like this and it's to cover their less than perfect lives.
