Angela Kinsey Can’t Help Her New Bathroom Behavior

The line between Angela Kinsey‘s personal space and that of her daughter Isabel Ruby‘s is becoming blurry.

“My trailer at work is all set up for Isabel. I have Play-Doh and crayons and a pretend microwave. It’s a total playroom,” The Office star, 39, tells Redbook‘s January issue.

And, according to Kinsey, her handbag has undergone a similar makeover.

“I once found a week old cheese stick at the bottom of my purse,” she says. “Trust me, it was disgusting.”

In fact, jokes Kinsey, after spending all of her time with her daughter, the actress often forgets to curb her motherly behavior when around her friends and family.

“I don’t even shut the bathroom door anymore. Once you’re a mom, that’s it,” she muses. “I actually forgot to shut the door at a friend’s house the other day. I was like, ‘Oh, my God. I’m so sorry!'”

Fortunately, the close mother-daughter relationship is proving to be quite beneficial when it comes to Isabel; The 2Β½-year-old seems to have inherited her mom’s witty sense of humor.

“When I was having trouble putting my new SIM card in my cell phone, she said, ‘Mommy, what is your problem?’ So I told her and she said, ‘Hmm. Maybe I can help,'” Kinsey laughs.

“And the other day she told me my hair looked crazy and I needed to brush it.”

LOL She is funny and very open and correct in most cases once you have kids you personal space goes away, specially if you have a child like AJ she was always cuddled up on someone’s lap, she love “snuggies”, hugs and kisses as a baby and really didn’t care if you were in the bathroom, or a shower at the time she wanted them from you. If she wanted to sleep in bed with you she did, she would just open the door, walk in, then jump into bed not really caring what you were in the middle off. Plus for the longest time she would only try new food if it came out of someone’s mouth. This lasted till she was almost six and could fully understand why we didn’t want her doing so things, regardless of how much it didn’t bother her. She was just a really lovey dovey child, who loved the world.

It was really nice to read about a Hollywood mom that doesn’t take herself to seriously and is out about the true side of motherhood. None of this my child is perfect, as am I, and we never do anything wrong, gross, or silly. Wish her all the best in the future and her lovely family as well.

LOL… I love her!!! It’s the same way at my house with the bathroom door, and I don’t even have kids. I do however have 2 dogs, and 2 cats that always manage to get the bathroom door open even if I do shut it… And if I do get it shut with-out them opening it, i get paws under the door……

I have to admit I don’t know who she is; I guess I should watch an episode of The Office. But she is funny in this story!

I am the same way! I shower and use the toilet with the door open just in case my kids need me. It’s a treat when I’m able to do so with no kiddies there. πŸ™‚
