This is not the first time Carey is talking about her approach to parenting her twins. Speaking in an interview with US Weekly, the singer spoke about how parenting realities differed from her expectations. She said:
"I’m not a regular mom. I’m a cool mom. There are no rules in this house. No, there are rules in this house, that’s the difference. Like, I want to be that — I don’t like being the bad guy, I have to say.
"I do want to be, like, ‘I’m not really a mom, I’m a cool mom.’ But you’re never a cool mom, like, you just never are.”
Social media users who are also parents reacted to Carey's post. Most of them spoke about how relatable the post was, others commended the 51-year-old award-winning singer for her parenting skills.
"Haha, that is SO funny! My daughter asks me that exact same question over and over again and my answer is always the same! NO! And then she replies « But why? »♀️ #mom’s Life."
"Kids are too much, here's my grandson, he's calling me from Portland to California to tell me his mom was drinking last night and talking about me."
