Pink has just gone and proven once again why she's our favourite celebrity mum. She's always been refreshingly honest about the struggles, frustrations and triumphs that parenting brings. 

 

This touching Instagram post is no exception. Sharing a touching candid of herself and her 10-year-old daughter Willow. 

 

 

She begins by admitting that parenting Willow before her brother came along was a lot easier. Son Jameson is 17 months, so she's also navigating a sizeable age gap between her two children. 

 

"I feel like I had it all figured out when she was younger. When it was just her. Now that there’s two, and such different ages, I feel flustered so much of the time."

 

As Willow embarks on her preteen years,Pink is growing more concerned over her parenting style. We feel ya mama, one day they're toddlers and the next they're actual little humans with their own thoughts and opinions. It's kind of scary. 

 

"The older she gets the less clear I am on how to guide her.

 

"Do I take the raw honest tough way? Do I cuddle her and tell her to not to worry? Do I let her be sassy knowing I want her to be strong and need her to be strong to survive in this world?

 

"Of course, but how do you interject subtlety and kindness? I already know I worry too much, don’t even bother telling me about that. I’m aware."

So concluded by asking her fans for thoughts. Honestly, we think she's already doing a fabulous job by being so open and refreshingly honest. 

 

Even the parent's comments underneath are giving us all the feels. 

 

"We're all just winging it as parents," one writes. "We do the best we can. My son is fierce yet my baby girl is a gentle soul I think it's personality :-) we just guide them through the storms as they come. This is love." 

 

"You tell her you love her everyday, hug her while she will still let you, and keep the balance up Mama! No matter what you do it's right for you and her in the moment."

 

"The fact that you are thinking about it is wonderful. Go with your gut feeling is what I would say."

 

"I think your unconditional love for her will help to guide her in life. Cuddles are always nice too! Timing is key. Give her space to grow at the same time." 

 

With a fierce mumma like Pink to look up to, we've no doubt that Willow will grow up to be an amazing young woman.
