Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum are taking this parenting thing one step at a time! The mother to 12-month-old baby girl Everly talked about her growing family for DuJour Magazine

The former backup dancer, 33, called her tiny tot "sassy and opinionated," but refuses to let her run the house or dictate their decisions.

"Kids are life-transformative, but they should fit into your life," Dewan Tatum told the magazine. "You don’t want to feel resentful for forgetting about a whole part of yourself. It’s tough learning how to balance and multitask; it’s a lot of balls to juggle. That’s been the biggest learning curve of this year for sure."

One way the first-time mom makes time for herself is by staying in shape. She occasionally does CrossFit with her hunky hubby, but he won't join her for spin classes.

"I have yet to get him to come to a spinning class with me," she said. "I’ve tried many times. He says there’s nothing more frustrating than sitting on a stationary bike and not going anywhere."

At the time of the interview, the couple was preparing for the MTV Movie Awards in April, but had just gotten poison oak.

"We’re going to the [MTV] Movie Awards tonight, but I have to rethink my dress," she said. "After this I’m heading to the dermatologist because my husband decided to go camping and bring back Poison Oak—the perks of living with a man who loves to be outdoors! We’re a family of poison oak at the moment. We’ll be really sexy on the red carpet tonight."
