By Whitney Johnson

Celebrity mom Jenna Dewan-Tatum always looks her best on the red carpet, but she insists that getting ready at home is a bit more challenging since welcoming baby Everly 18 months ago. Her and her husband may be considered one of the hottest celebrity couples, but this celebrity mom is pretty down-to-earth when it comes to how she feels. According to, the actress recently joked that she doesn’t know how other mothers leave the house with their makeup done, much less keep up with all of their products. “I’m like, ‘How does that happen?’ Everly will actually take it from me and go put it somewhere else,” she shared. “I’m like, ‘Okay, I need that makeup back.’ It’s a whole big circus in our household.”

This celebrity mom has to be creative with her baby to prepare for the day. What are some ways to entertain your child while you get ready?

Cupid’s Advice:

A child changes your daily routine in more ways than you could ever imagine. Something as simple as taking a shower or fixing your hair must be carefully planned according to your baby’s schedule. Here, Cupid reveals three ways to entertain your kid while you get ready for the day:

1. Keep them busy: It’s easy enough to move your baby’s toys from the playroom to the kitchen…to the bathroom. Spread out a blanket and grab their favorites books and blocks. As long as they’re having fun, they won’t care that you’re curling your hair or carefully applying your lipstick.

2. Ask for help: If your partner has a flexible work schedule, don’t be afraid to ask him to stick around for a few extra minutes in the morning. A healthy habit in love and relationships is to partner on certain tasks, such as parenting. It’ll be a good opportunity for him to bond with his child, and it’ll let you have a moment to yourself before your busy day of parenting begins.

3. Turn to technology: While not all parents allow their children to watch television or play on an iPad, if you’re okay with your kids becoming familiar with technology, go ahead! A 20-minute Dora the Explorer could give you the time you need to put on that fresh face of makeup.
