Stars, they’re just like us! Even star parents, who–despite having wildly successful and exciting careers–still have to grapple with the fact that they’re, at the end of the day, just a mom or a dad like any other.
Take, for example, the latest real-life truth exposed by pop star Carrie Underwood, who’s a busy lady in general and in the middle of a concert tour at the moment. Well, mama’s to-do list is of no concern for her son, 21-month-old Isaiah, who just wants a hug from mama no matter what he has to interrupt to get one.
“He doesn’t care that Mommy had to get ready for a show…all he knows is that he woke up cranky from his nap and needed a cuddle…and I was more than happy to comply,” wrote Carrie, who posted the sweet, candid photo to her Instagram account.
What parent can’t relate? When snuggle time is needed, that takes priority over other tasks at hand. The rest of the world will just have to wait.
