Heidi Klum talked to Us Magazine about being the mother of four children:
“When you have one [child], you can focus on one. With four, you have to make sure [your attention] is all spread out just right,” she says. “You have to understand how different they all are! And at the end of the day, there is not much time left for you!”
One way Klum and Seal, 48, are teaching responsibility to their kids? Having them help take care of the family’s two German Shepherds, Freddy and Max. The dogs “are starting to teach them about responsibility and caring for someone else,” she says. “They are also learning about rules, schedules with feeding and walking and sharing. Having the two dogs is big time sharing for the kids!”
Clearly, I could never have full siblings—they would be way too distracting for my parents.
But here’s a confession—I would really like a dog, and my parents won’t let me get one.
Apparently, Tom is deathly afraid and Katie is allergic. They just will not budge. I barely had to ask for the seal or the miniature horse or the endangered snow leopard (Shhhh!), but apparently a simple dog is too much to ask for. Go figure.
You should feel sorry for me.
