Eva Mendes shares that the most difficult part about parenthood is constantly having snacks in her purse.
Hitch actress, Eva Mendes shares two children with her husband Ryan Gosling. They have two daughters Esmerelda, 5, and Amada, 3. Mendes says that motherhood is hard and she is constantly trying to find time to get away from her children. She just posted on Instagram showing her hiding in bed. All you can see in the photo is her eyes. She said that she was hiding from her children and she was so tired the night before that she didn't even wash off her make-up. Although motherhood is very hard she said that the hardest part about motherhood is the number of snacks that she has to take with her everywhere.

Sunday. Still in bed. Trying to hide from my kids. (not having success) And no, I didn’t wash my makeup off last night. I know , I know so bad, yadda yadda but I like the “next day of the night before “ eye make up look. My skin disagrees tho. To all you mamas out there, hope you find a moment to sneak away from the madness today even for a few minutes. Calgon take me awayyyyy (the older moms will know what that means) ❤️
Mendes said that she always has snacks in her purse and her daughters always want something different and fresh and so she is constantly having to restock her purse and always have something for them. She said that her daughter even has to have snacks going short distances. In all seriousness though, she confessed that nobody actually told her how difficult motherhood was going to be. Mendes admitted that it was a lot harder than she ever thought possible. “[I’m] a chauffeur, a cook, a personal assistant to an abusive boss. They’re not grateful. Any other profession you would need to pass a test, but the only test I had to pass was a pregnancy test. That doesn’t seem fair.” Nobody is qualified to become a mother because nobody does anything that will fully prepare them for all of the duties and responsibilities that being a mother requires. Mendes said that she and Gosling have very similar parenting styles. They both consider themselves "bulldozers" and they can be very controlling of their children.
Even though motherhood is very difficult and she struggles often with her role she loves it so much. Halloween is coming up soon and she is excited to be able to go trick-or-treating with her daughters except they want to be the same thing again this year. They want to be Dorthy from Wizard of Oz which they were last year. Mendes said she is currently trying to convince her daughters to do something different. She does feel like it is Halloween every day in their house because they are constantly dressing up!
