Even though her two daughters Birdie Leigh, 6½, and Cricket Pearl, 2 next month, have a strong sisterly bond, Busy Philipps quickly realized their five-year age difference has some challenges.
“I thought that my children were going to share a bedroom and it turns out that they’re too far apart in age,” the Cougar Town alum told PEOPLE at the Jenni Kayne + Pottery Barn Kids Collection Launch with Baby2Baby in West Hollywood on Saturday.
“It’s just a disaster because the baby goes to bed so early and so, we’ve had this crazy makeshift thing going on in our house for the past year-and-a-half.”
She adds, “Now, we’re doing an addition — we’re going to build a new bedroom — and Birdie has declared that she gets the new bedroom. Which, I get it, you’re the older sister, but I’m going to have to get all new stuff.”
