These Pics Prove Carrie Underwood is Every Mom

Carrie Underwood, the queen of country music, has admitted time and again that’s she’s just your average mom. In an interview with PEOPLE, she spoke about eating breakfast with her family and burritos on the go when she’s in a time crunch. But doing laundry takes the cake as the most relatable mom duty of them all. “I do a lot of laundry. Isaiah just thinks my job is doing laundry,” she says. The mother of two boys, 1-year-old Jacob Bryan and 5-year-old Isaiah Michael, has an at-home-life that’s *pretty* normal.

But before the kids even wake up, she wants to sneak in some time with her husband. “My kids are my alarm. My husband and I are trying this thing where we get up earlier so we can have a little quiet time before the kids wake up.” However, the “Cry Pretty” singer still makes plenty of time for her children. She even took them with her on tour, which she admits is not easy. Still, her work-life balance is truly something to be admired. Here, we’ve listed her best mom moments that prove she is #everymom. 

She got real about “bouncing back” after birth

I’m going to be honest, “bouncing back” after having Jacob has been much more difficult than after I had Isaiah and I’ve been pretty hard on myself lately. I go into the gym and I can’t run as fast or as far. I can’t lift as much weight or do as many reps as I could a year ago. I just want to feel like myself again…for my body to feel the way that I know it can. As I was working out today, I realized that for the past 11(ish) months, my body has not belonged to me. It was a perfect home for Jacob. And even now it belongs to him every time he drinks his milk. As I prepare for red carpets and for life on tour, right now I make a promise to myself to start appreciating what my body CAN do and stop focusing on what it can’t. I promise to stop analyzing every angle and every curve and every pound and every meal. I’m going to keep staying the path because it is a journey and as long as I’m always working towards my goals, one day I’ll reach them. I’m going to take it day by day, smile at the girl in the mirror, and work out because I love this body and all it has done and will continue to do! #bodyafterbaby #fitmom #healthy #staythepath @caliabycarrie

After she had Jacob, her workout routine (and everyday life for that matter) completely changed. Even though she couldn’t run as fast, and did admit that she wanted “to feel like myself again,” Underwood acknowledged what her body did for her along her pregnancy and postpartum journey. As any mom can attest, bodies after baby are an adjustment.

She takes the kids to Sesame Place

Plenty of parents consider a visit to Sesame Place a rite of passage for their kids. So, on her day off, Underwood took Isaiah and Jacob to see some furry monster friends and play games. They looked like they had the time of their lives.

She’s a soccer mom

Imagine your mom cheering you on at your soccer game in the morning and running to record a hit single at night. Okay, maybe this time Underwood isn’t just like every mom.

Her kids think her job is laundry

 

Yep, Underwood’s 4-year-old thinks she’s 70 years old and does laundry all day. In response, other moms shared their kids’ “All About My Mom” notes with similar anecdotes. 

She threw her son a Ninja Turtle party

 

For Isaiah’s 5th birthday, Underwood threw him a Ninja Turtle party at DEFY Nashville trampoline park with friends and family. His birthday cake mimicked The Mystery Machine in Scooby-Doo. And honestly, especially when you compare it to various Kardashian kids birthday bashes, Underwood’s party filled with trampolines, foam pits, and fondant cake is exactly how we’d like to celebrate.
