Julie Bowen Quotes On Children

Children are like crazy, drunken small people in your house.

Julie Bowen Quotes On Hate

I always come across sounding like I hate my children. I actually love them very much.

Kids think the world is about them, so if you forgot to put the right flavor yogurt in their lunch, and they have too much homework when they come home, they’re like, “You know I hate peach!” There’s a part of me that’s like, “I’m so sorry. I could have shown my love more.”

Julie Bowen Quotes On Husband

My husband is very funny and his humor has gotten us through a lot. He’s good at defusing me.

In my family, Mom

In my family, Mom can lead the sports activities, no problem! Except football – that, my husband does.

Julie Bowen Quotes On Mom

I was class mom at the preschool one year and I was pretty much asked not to do that again!

I take the kids skiing every year, and my husband doesn’t always go. The way I grew up, that’s very normal. My mom would take us skiing, but my dad hates cold weather.

At restaurants, I carry paper and markers and tell everyone to draw a picture with a unicorn, an octopus and an explosion. That keeps kids still for a minute.

Everyone [of my kids] can ride a bike now, so the park has had a big resurgence in our life. We also play a lot of dumb drawing games.

I have this fancy Givenchy bag. I don’t know what the Kardashians have in their bags – I bet they have really expensive products or six cellphones or something. I have a cellphone and some lipstick for me, and the rest is just filled with stuff for the kids – sunscreen and lip balm and little Ziploc bags of pretzels and cheese sticks.

Julie Bowen Quotes On Brother

I tell my kids, “Look, your life is a video game, and I have to get you from level zero to 18 as an independent person with all your skills and limbs intact. Every time you hit your brother or throw food, you’re taking us all back.”

We can’t have iPads until after 7 p.m. Otherwise the entire day is, “iPad time? What about now?” It makes me crazy. And no TV on weekend mornings.

I’m most certainly not the Beatles.

I think it’s pretty common for people to get excited when they meet somebody that they know from the media.
