Sarah Jessica Parker: twins are like "little monkeys"
The actress admits her two-year-old twins Tabitha and Marion are very mischievous and are especially naughty at meal times.
The `Sex and the City` star - who is married to actor Matthew Broderick - said: "It is stunning to me what can happen in a kitchen in 20 minutes. It really is like feeding animals in a zoo. The twins are crazy, like little monkeys. They are so charming and funny and sweet, but brutal to each other, too. They beat each other up all the time!"
SarahJessica always tries to be there for her kids but admits her career sometimes gets in the way of her parental duties.
The 46-year-old Hollywood beauty was "very sad" when she had to miss her eight-year-old son James` birthday but she insists she very rarely has to let her kids down.
She told Red magazine: "I have certainly felt disappointment and sadness. I missed my son`s birthday because of work. There was nothing, at all, I could about it, but of course I felt desperately sad. I try to organise my professional life around the things that are important in my children`s life. So when I am missing things, I look forward to hearing about them."
SarahJessica - who plays a hedge-fund manager struggling to juggle her family and work commitments in `I Don`t Know How She Does It` - has no plans to give up her career and is confident she can maintain a healthy life balance.
She said: "It`s like sometimes I won`t be there when they (the twins) wake up - and I wish I could be - but I have work to do and I`ll be home by 6.30pm, so I can feed them and put them to bed. Those are the important parts. And I still want to be that other person, that mother going out to work, too."
