Like most moms, Christina Applegate discovered that getting through the terrible twos is no easy feat.

“I barely survived,” Applegate tells PEOPLE, admitting that even though her daughter Sadie Grace is now 4½ years old, things haven’t gotten much easier.

“The fours are pretty gnarls too. She is pushing so many boundaries right now. I say, ‘Please put that down. Please put that down. Please put that down.’ It’s crazy man.”

But she is also enjoying some of the perks that come with having a little girl — like being able to take her to lunch and spend quality girl time together.

“My favorite time is just when it’s the two of us and we are having lunch and talking,” shares Applegate.

Christina Applegate is many things — including an Emmy-winning actress, a cancer survivor and a philanthropist.

But there’s another side of the Anchorman star that nobody knew about … until now!

According to the actress, she’s a total dance mom to her 3½-year-old ballet dancer, daughter Sadie Grace.

“Sometimes I’ll find myself watching her in class, and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, you’re so being a dance mom,’ ” Applegate, 42, told PEOPLE at the Fourth Annual Celebration of Dance Gala presented by The Dizzy Feet Foundation on Sunday.

“I’m sitting [there] in my head going, ‘Why isn’t she pointing her foot that way?! Someone needs to go in there and fix her foot!'”

Applegate, who can no longer dance herself because of injuries — but still occasionally guest-judges on So You Think You Can Dance, grew up with an extreme passion for the sport.

Christina Applegate: Sadie Doesn’t Get Her Fashion Sense from Me

Christina Applegate has always been one to watch on the red carpet.

But, these days, the actress’s style has taken a backseat to another fashionista: 3-year-old daughter Sadie Grace.

“I’m total yoga-pant mom at this point. Sweatpants or whatever I’ve exercised in that day is what I’ll end up wearing for the rest of the day,” Applegate tells PEOPLE.

“People at her school are lucky if I show up in my pajamas, so [Sadie] doesn’t get any fashion sense from me.”

Applegate may prefer to keep it comfortable and casual during school runs, but Sadie uses the everyday affair as an opportunity to get glamorous in her favorite satin frock. And we mean favorite.

Like many mothers, Christina Applegate can’t decide if she wants to have more kids.

“I’m 41 years old and I don’t know if I could do the whole not sleeping thing again,” the Anchorman 2 star said Thursday on Access Hollywood Live. “If I was 35, then maybe I’d have the energy.”

Although daughter Sadie Grace, 2½, isn’t an only child (husband Martyn LeNoble has a 16-year-old daughter, Marlon, from a previous relationship), Applegate is unsure about giving her a little brother or sister.

“When I get up it hurts,” she jokes. “Some people can do it and I say, ‘Hats off to you.'”

Still Applegate admits that she may change her mind, adding, “That’s just how I feel right now.”
