Almost two full years into the pandemic and you'd be hard-pressed to find a mama out there who doesn't know the struggle of quarantining at home with her kids. Kelly Clarkson is that mama. She called into her own talk show this week to update her viewers on what it's been like being at home. Spoiler alert: not good. Lol.
While speaking to her audience and guest host Taraji P. Henson on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Clarkson opened up about what it's been like to quarantine with her two kids, River, 7 and Remington, 5.
First things first, the singer showed up looking like we all do—bathrobe and no makeup, complete with a satin eye mask that reads, "Shhhh." Let's get a round of applause going for her relatability, shall we?
"Sometimes women don't rise," Clarkson quipped to Henson. "Sometimes we fall. I thought we were done with quarantining, and I'm so tired. I broke a nail. I'm so broken. This is me broken. My almond milk just expired. America, this is what I look like. You're welcome."
While she didn't share the specific details about her family's quarantine, she implied they had been exposed to COVID-19.
Lucky for Clarkson, her kids are just as obsessed with Encanto as everyone else is. And just like the rest of us, watching a movie with two young children proves about as fruitful as you'd think.
"When I watch a movie with my children, it's like watching three movies," Clarkson said. "We're watching Encanto and then you're listening to my son who always leaves mid-movie and just starts singing the soundtrack, and then you have River who literally just, right after the line is said, she just repeats like she's memorizing dialogue for a play."
We love a budding little thespian, don't we? Whom among us hasn't recited Disney movies in our youth so we, too, could feel like a princess protagonist.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, yes her Christmas lights and decorations are still up, thankyouverymuch.
"Look, it's busy, there's a lot going on. I have all my stuff up," she said, sharing a photo of her tree. "[The show] asked me, 'Do you have your Christmas stuff up?' And I'm like, 'Don't judge me!'"
We feel you, mama. If keeping it together means you're still Jingle Bell-ing in February, so be it!
