After appearing on the original The Girls Next Door reality show with Hugh Hefner, Kendra Wilkinson's humor and candor paved the way for her very own reality show, Kendra. Now as a mom to Hank Jr., born in December 2009, her life is less Playboy and more about playing with her little boy. So how is life in the Baby Zone? Kendra tells it like it is, including a breastfeeding story you won't believe (but it's true)!
What's your golden rule of parenting?
Don't take everything so seriously. Just have fun. Let him fall. I'm just having a lot of fun. If he cries for two hours, I'm going to laugh at him for two hours because he's turning 2. So, he'll go for about two hours screaming and crying non-stop and all he wants is me to pick him up. We have a lot of personality in our family and we love each other so much and we can talk smack to each other and laugh about it and have fun with it. And he's getting that, too. He's getting my laugh, too.
Describe the best moment of parenting so far.
Baby Hank is the most thoughtful little boy. He cares so much about others, more than he cares about himself. And whenever I see him share with someone or give someone a hug or be thoughtful, that's the best thing to see. That's like blood related. He inherited that from us. He naturally is a warm person. A person that loves people. He cares for others and he cares so much.
And the worst?
His two-hour breakdown.
Best advice you ever got?
Let him cry.
What's the one thing you can't live without?
Finish this sentence: You know you're in the Baby Zone when...
... my first party I went to after giving birth to Hank, I went to Eve nightclub in Vegas and my boobs started leaking. I couldn't do anything so I breastfed myself [laughs]. And it tasted sweet, too!
