Listen up, moms! Tamera Mowry-Housley may have just given birth on Wednesday, July 1, but she's been around the block before with her 2-year-old son Aden — and she learned a thing or two along the way. Prior to welcoming daughter Ariah Talea Housley with husband Adam Housley, the then-pregnant Sister, Sister alum stopped by Us Weekly's New York City office to share her parenting wisdom.
Mommy tip No. 1? If you can't get your kids to eat their vegetables, try getting them to drink their vegetables!
"Juicing is the way to go," the Real co-host, 36, told Us. "You just add some apple juice, carrot juice, kale, and spinach, and you put that in your Vitamix. Aden loves it."
Mommy tip No. 2 is a little more philosophical — but no less important. "This is a big one. When you're transitioning your child from the nursery bed to the toddler bed, have patience," she advised. "Have patience with your child, and not only that, have patience with yourself."
As announced by her husband on Twitter, Mowry-Housley welcomed her second child on July 1. "We are so blessed and excited right now," the former pro baseball player, 42, wrote Wednesday night. "Ariah Talea Housley was born at 2:54…she looks so much like Aden. :)"
