Parenting is always such an adventure. Each month we want to nominate a mom or dad who we think is doing an excellent job parenting and deserves their own kudos! This month we’ve chosen one of our favorite celebrity moms, Kristen Bell.

Kristen Bell is a mom who keeps it real when talking about parenting and how tough it can be on moms. Bell has said her daughters are pretty good eaters but can be picky sometimes. “I try to make everything fun, make it a game,” she explained. “We will slice up bell peppers into circles, and I’ll tell them that they’re edible bracelets. And we’ll eat our bracelets off our arms. We make a lot of plates into faces, arrange the food in a way that’s fun.” Sometimes being a mom means coming up with creative ways to make healthy eating fun and easy. Kristen Bell definitely accomplishes that mom goal!
She is a very hands-on mom and has been protective of her girls, especially from the spotlight that they didn’t choose. She has said, “I won’t do interviews for entities that pay photogs to take pics of my baby anymore. I care more about my integrity and my values than my career.” That is one awesome and fierce mom. She has also successfully started a movement and boycott of magazines that follow celeb kids around and post pictures. She protects her child’s identity, privacy, and sense of well being.
Us moms can relate to Kristen’s never-ending struggle of wanting to keep all our little one’s precious artwork but not quite knowing what it is or what to do with it after. She posted. “Serious question: what are you supposed to do with all the beautiful garbage that your kids give you?#momlife.”
She knows when to take one for the team, like last Halloween when her daughters made her dress like Elsa and not the pivotal character she voices in frozen, Anna! How sweet and funny is this mom moment? Just when you think you’re cool because you voice one of the most popular characters little girls love, your own daughters bring you back to earth and make you dress like the one you don’t voice.
Kristen Bell is a great example of a very involved, down to earth and real celeb mom. We would love to get a chance to hang out with her and show her our own kudo moments with our little ones! Tune in next month for our next Kudo mom or dad nominee!
