No more monkeys jumping on the bed!
“Every time she bounces on the bed, I see stitches,” she says in Glamour‘s June issue. “Being a parent is a Jedi mind f—. It’s also the raddest thing ever.”
As it turns out, the new mama’s worries are for good reason. When her daughter was “around a year old,” Pink was forced to face her worst fears — head on!
“Willow and I were at the pool and I was taking her to nap time. She was walking just a foot in front of me, and she trips and falls and gets a concussion,” Pink, 33, recalls. “She passed out. Cut to an ambulance and fire truck and a CAT scan.”
While the experience proved to be “the worst day of my life,” Pink admits she’s since received a fair warning of her future. “And what do they say? ‘Kids fall.’ Welcome to parenthood,” she muses. “I thought, I can’t handle this. I’m fitting her for a bubble.”
