Any mom can tell you that once you have kids, your body goes through some changes. Serious changes. Now while some women try to alter their new bodies with a little mommy maintenance, others just say, “Screw it. I’m a mom, I’m doing me and I’m going to enjoy myself and my beautiful children.”

Drew Barrymore is one of the latter women. In an interview with Glamour, the actress and FLOWER Beauty entrepreneur talks about what it’s like to come to terms with your new shape after you’ve had children. “After making two babies, holy cow, does your body do some crazy stuff! It’s hard to stay positive and love yourself,” she says. “You feel like a kangaroo with a giant pouch; everything’s saggy and weird.”

But even with all the saggy bits, Drew says it’s nothing compared to the love you feel for your kids. “You think about how beautiful it is that you’re able to make children. When I lose sight of that, I exercise, read Dr. Seuss’s Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, and spend time with my kids. Then I start to see things that are bigger than myself.”
