Actress Reese Witherspoon says life is about balance and flexibility with kids.

She told the entertainment and fashion website Exposay, "Like every working parent, I sometimes feel that there are not enough hours in the day. But overall, I'm very fortunate that my job has a lot of flexibility. I spend a lot of time with the kids, just around the house. They're still pretty young, so I feel like what I can mostly do is listen to them and be there for them."

For Sarah Jessica Parker, appreciating the small things is the key: "Babies always smell good, and even a wet diaper smells good to me," she said on "The Early Show." "I love it. It's warm."
