Denise Jonas: Only The Mom can be The Mom

Denise Jonas: Only The Mom can be The Mom

Denise Jonas puts on a happy smile as she surrounds herself with her three eldest sons, Kevin, Joe and Nick on the May 2010 cover of Guideposts magazine.

Check out some of Denise‘s tips for moms everywhere:

On listening to the music: “Nick was the most precocious musically. At age three, he wandered around the house, asking, ‘Do you hear that? Do you hear the music?’ Then he’d burst out with some song.”

On staying connected with her four boys: “Don’t stop sending messages. Kids need to know you love them. I even buy cards for the boys when they’re on the road. Two weeks ago I came home to a bouquet of flowers and a card from Joe. All he wanted to say was: ‘I love you, Mom.’ It made my day. In our house you can never say ‘I love you’ too much.”

On her favorite song: “One of my favorites of the boys’ songs is called ‘Pushing Me Away.’ Every time they do it in concert, I get choked up because it speaks to one of my weaknesses as a mom. I’m passionate and strong-willed—my Italian blood again. I want to be front and center in my kids’ lives. I have opinions about everything.”

On being the mom: “You’re not the best friend. You’re the mom. Set limits and an example. Anyone can be a friend. Only the mom can be the mom. Sometimes that’s difficult.”
