Drew Barrymore: ‘I Didn’t Really Have Parents’

01/27/2015 at 02:00 PM ET

How does Drew Barrymore know she’s a great mom?

The actress, who appears on the cover of More magazine’s February issue, credits her difficult childhood with teaching her to be a better mother.

“I didn’t really have parents, you know?” Barrymore, 39, says. “And therefore the kind of parent I will be is a good, present parent.”

She adds: “In a way, maybe that was a detriment to my youth, but it’ll be the biggest asset to my adulthood.”

Drew Barrymore‘s daughters are meeting milestones every single day, but 2-year-old Olive‘s most recent memorable moment might be one of her cutest yet.

“[She said] her first, ‘Oy vey.’ That made me happy, ” the actress told PEOPLE at The Daily Front Row’s inaugural Fashion Los Angeles Awards on Thursday.

According to the founder of Flower cosmetics, her toddler’s language skills are equally impressive. “My daughter counted to three in Hebrew today,” Barrymore, 39, shares. “She was learning [Hebrew] this morning so I was proud of her.”

As for her strong bond with 9-month-old Frankie? Well, Olive excels at being a big sister, too.

“She’s really sweet,” says Barrymore. “Whenever Frankie cries, she always goes, ‘Don’t worry, Frankie. It’s okay.’ That’s very sweet.”

Family comes first for Drew Barrymore.

“It’s amazing. It’s the driving force behind how I live my life,” Barrymore told PEOPLE at the Refinery29 L.A. Holiday Party on Dec. 10.

Barrymore, 39, and husband Will Kopelman welcomed daughter Frankie in April. The couple’s baby girl joined older sister Olive, 2.

And with her two little ones at home, Barrymore says she’s had to prioritize her many hats.

“The acting has to be less and less because it’s too time-consuming. I love it and I don’t want to abandon it, but it can’t be at the forefront right now,” the actress explains, adding she loves her cosmetics line, Flower Beauty, “because it allows [her] to be a great mom.”

Drew Barrymore Would Be ‘Mystified’ to Have a Son

Is Drew Barrymore destined only to have daughters?

Maybe so, she says. But she’d love to have a boy, even if she’d probably be totally lost at first.

“I feel like if my husband and I try to have a third, I would be mystified if we have a boy, because I’m so unfamiliar with boys,” the actress and mother of two daughters — Olive, 20 months, and Frankie, 4 weeks — told PEOPLE at the Hollywood premiere of her new movie, Blended, on Wednesday.

In the film, Barrymore, 39, plays the mother of two boys, but that didn’t even help. “I’m totally still as stupefied as ever!” she claims.

“I’m a guy’s girl, and I’ve never been overly ‘girlie-girl,’ but I love my girlfriends so much, so it makes all the sense in the world that my karma is to have two daughters,” she says.

Meet Drew Barrymore’s Newborn Daughter Frankie!

Drew Barrymore Introduces Daughter Frankie

Drew Barrymore is the first to admit taking care of a newborn and a toddler has been an adjustment.

The actress, who delivered her second child with art advisor husband Will Kopelman on April 22, says her recovery with newborn daughter Frankie was quicker this time around than following her first pregnancy with elder daughter Olive, 20 months.

“I knew that I have two kids to take care of now and just kicked my own butt to get back into the swing of things immediately,” she tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story.

The biggest challenge? “Just being split. They’re awake and asleep at different times, or awake at the same time, and it’s a juggling act a little bit.”

Barrymore, 39, says her own tumultuous childhood influenced what she sees as most important for her kids.
