Before there was Summer on the The OC or Blair on Gossip Girl, there was Kelly Taylor of 90210. For many modern mamas, Kelly Taylor was the girl next door. High school girls related to her and tried to emulate her every move. And much like the actress who played her, Jennie Garth is the envy of many a mother. The bubbly blond recaptured America's hearts on Dancing With the Stars and is reprising her role on the old teen fave, 90210. As a counselor on the show, it is fitting that the famous mum has words of wisdom for other mommies. The adorable mama took the time to answer our four lil questions:
1. Why didn't anybody tell me ... about motherhood?
Why didn't anybody tell me it would be so hard? That it would be the hardest job ever.
2. You know you're a mother when ...
When you have a little bit of throw up on you and it's okay and you just keep on going.
3. What's the best trick your mama taught you?
It doesn't matter if the dishes are clean. It just matters that my kids are happy.
4. Free-range mom or helicopter mom?
Free-range mom. I let them run free.
