Soleil Moon Frye Is ‘Terrible’ at Preparing for Third Child

10/07/2013 at 03:00 PM ET

At this point, pregnancy might be old hat, but actress Soleil Moon Frye admits that actually preparing for baby number three is another story.

“I’m terrible!” the actress, 37, tells PEOPLE at the celebration for her entertaining book, Let’s Get This Party Started, held Saturday in Beverly Hills. “The first couple of times I was so prepared. Now I’m like, ‘Nursery? What nursery? The baby can sleep in our room, right?’ I’ve got to get clothes … We’ve got a million names — I need to get on it.”

Frye, due in mid-February, is “already feeling nine months pregnant and I’m only five and a half! With the third, my body has immediately gone back to where it was,” she tells PEOPLE. Daughters Poet, 8 and Jagger, 5½, are eagerly awaiting the baby’s arrival as well. “Both of them are excited, but I think Jagger’s excited to not be the youngest anymore. She’s kissing the belly every second!”

Techs have yet to 100 percent confirm the baby’s sex, so Frye is keeping mum for now (“we’ll let you know!”), but one thing is for certain: Growing up in her and husband Jason Goldberg‘s family means a lot of crafting — and a lot of creativity.

In Let’s Get This Party Started — out Oct. 15 — Frye delivers dozens of tips and ideas on how to throw affordable, fun and easy parties for kids, while encouraging their participation at the same time.

“My kids love coming up with ideas for themes, whether it’s 80s, safari or rainbow,” the author shares. “And there are so many things you can do with things that are just sitting in your house! Toilet paper rolls can become binoculars, paper towel rolls can be spyglasses. It’s fun involving the kids.”

Given the comment about the ultrasound techs being unsure about the gender, I’m thinking it’s another girl (seeing as how there’s pretty much no mistaking it, especially at the point of pregnancy she’s at, if a baby boy is on board! ;))! Of course, now that I said that it will probably be a boy! 😉

I couldn’t agree more that the body goes right back where it was, although mine happened with my fourth. I got pregnant when my third was 5 months old and it was if my body just picked right back up where it left off. I carried way out in front and looked huge even though I didn’t gain a lot of weight (18 pounds) but I felt ungainly from about the 5th month. It was worth it though!

I have been watching Punky reruns with my 4 year old and love seeing how Soleil has become such a wonderful, well-rounded adult and seems to be a great mom with such cutie girls. Such a good example.

However, much like Tori Spelling, I don’t see why some “has been” celebs feel like they have to make a business out of things like party planning and creativity. It’s interesting to me that there would be such a demand for books on the subject, since I would think most of their target audience of moms would be all over the internet and places like Pinterest to get ideas that are truly cheap and easy instead of buying a book with limited ideas.

Good luck to Soleil and her sweet family.

I have three. My thirdborn had to roll with it or he got left You also discover the ridiculousness of being so anal about the firstborn.

I am also thinking its a girl…my doctor also couldn’t tell with both my daughters, even though I thought if either WAS a boy, we would probably know it!
