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.
