Drew Barrymore and husband Will Kopelman may have decided to end their four-year marriage, but that doesn’t mean the family is completely fractured.

On Mother’s Day, Barrymore posted a cute Instagram photo showing her laughing outside with her daughter Frankie, 2, and her ex-mother in law Coco Kopelman. Her elder daughter Olive, 3, was not pictured.

How Drew Barrymore Wants to Spend Mother’s Day: Watching Tom and Jerry with Her Girls

04/27/2016 at 01:15 PM ET

Drew Barrymore is planning on celebrating the little things — with her little ones! — this year for Mother’s Day.

“We don’t have any big plans or anything,” the actress told PEOPLE while hosting the Shutterfly Mother’s Day Event in Hollywood on Sunday. “I would like to start the day by ourselves, just me and the girls, vintage Tom and Jerry.”

Yes, a cat and mouse cartoon created in 1940 has become a staple in the Barrymore household, and has become something that Barrymore and daughters Frankie, 2, and Olive, 3, can enjoy together.

“They live for it!” the 41-year-old mother says, laughing. “There is a real oddity to the humor, it’s kind of deep and dark and weird.”

Drew Barrymore on Being ‘So Happy Now’: I Have a ‘Good Thing in My Life with My Kids’

04/25/2016 at 11:55 AM ET

Only weeks after announcing her divorce from husband Will Kopelman, Drew Barrymore can still draw upon her sense of family to lift her up.

All of her life lessons, she says, can be applied to her most important role: motherhood.

“I just feel like my whole life was collecting things in a butterfly net of experience,” she told reporters Sunday while attending Safe Kids Day 2016 at Smashbox Studios. “What to do, what not to do, how to live, how not to live, how to be free, happy. Just gaining every bit of wisdom that I could, all for that because I cannot remember life before kids. It seems like a dream.”

A dream that she is happily living each day with daughters Frankie, 2, and Olive, 3, and one that is buoyed by the voices of other women that share her experience.

“I was saying this quote that a women said at a conference that I was at the other day,” the actress tells PEOPLE. “She said, ‘I can’t wait to go to work, and I can’t wait to get home.’ And I thought, that sums up a great womanhood to me.”

Who knew Elsa from Frozen does yoga?

Drew Barrymore shared an adorable photo on her Instagram account Wednesday in which she and 3½-year-old daughter Olive, wearing the movie character’s signature blue dress, attend a yoga class together.

Drew Barrymore Would Support Her Daughters Becoming Actors – But Not Until They’re 18!

Drew Barrymore opens up about the lessons she learned throughout her troubled childhood and how she finally found her happily ever after. Subscribe now for this exclusive interview, only in PEOPLE!

Drew Barrymore has already lived quite a life.

After finding fame at age 7 following her breakthrough role on E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, the actress has spent years making movies and finding her way in the industry. Yet it’s her role as mom to daughters, Olive, 3, and Frankie, 18 months, with husband, Will Kopelman, that has most changed her life.

In her new book, Wildflower, Barrymore, 40, reflects on “the in-between moments” of her very public childhood and shares intimate stories — from working on the E.T. set with director and mentor Steven Spielberg to the professional relationships and lifelong friendships she’s made with Adam Sandler, Cameron Diaz and her producing partner at Flower Films, Nancy Jovonen.

“It was such a private, quiet thing to write the book,” she says. “It was just for me. My girlfriends aren’t even in it enough as far as I’m concerned because they are such a big part of my life. They seem like just my friends, but my friends were like my first family. But it was a very quiet thing. I really dedicate it to my kids.”

Drew Barrymore on Her Mom-Bod: ‘I Would Much Rather Have My Kids and Look a Little Worse In a Bathing Suit!’

Drew Barrymore opens up about the lessons she learned throughout her troubled childhood and how she finally found her happily ever after. Subscribe now for this exclusive interview, only in PEOPLE!

Drew Barrymore likes to exercise. But it’s not to have that Hollywood body-after-baby.

Finding time for kickboxing, yoga and doing the elliptical a few times a week “is more for mental,” she tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “I never looked good in a bathing suit, so now I look worse in a bathing suit. I have cellulite. But I would much rather have my kids and look a little worse in a bathing suit!”

While life as mom to Olive, 3, and Frankie, 18 months, keeps her on the go, Barrymore says she was at first conscious of losing the baby weight.

“I tried to go gluten-free because I thought it would help me lose weight,” she says. “It did no such thing. And I was just unhappy.”
