Casey Wilson is generally good at making people laugh, but her 15-month-old son Max Red really makes her work for it.

“If I can get a laugh out of him, I feel I’m really at the top of my game,” the star of the upcoming film The Masterpiece, 35, tells PEOPLE. “He doesn’t give it up so easily!”

A bit of physical comedy usually does the trick.

“It’s sort of back to basics with him,” says Wilson. “I did do a little clown work in this bouncy house he was crawling around in. I did some pratfalls, and that seemed to get him — not for long — but I thought, ‘I still got it.’ ”

Jaime Pressly and her 9-year-old son Dezi James both love crafting — and they’re constantly brainstorming new ideas for things to create together.

“We were trying to come up with something that was cool and different because we’ve pretty much done every arts and crafts there is!” the Mom star, 39, tells PEOPLE of how they thought of making a “summer tree,” a palm tree decorated with painted sand dollars and starfish.

“We have Christmas trees, and it’s our favorite time of year, but it’s the only time you actually get to decorate a tree,” Pressly adds.

Interior designer Willa Ford admits that even though she has helped bring tons of home visions to fruition, when it came time to design a nursery for her own child, she needed a good place to begin.

“When you do so many different aesthetics for so many different people, you go, ‘I love this trend and that trend’ and get it out of your system. When it comes to yours, you freeze for a minute,” the former singer, who gained fame for her 2001 hit “I Wanna Be Bad,” tells PEOPLE of the gender-neutral room she designed for her first child, a delivery surprise due at the end of August.

“It was honestly about the wallpaper [being] the starting point,” adds the mom-to-be, who married former Tampa Bay Buccaneers player Ryan Nece in October.

“With my personality, I just knew it had to look nature-y. It’s so funny — we focus so much on the baby and what the baby’s gonna love. They’re never gonna know what it looks like! I’ll pay money if you can remember what your nursery looked like,” Ford, 35, jokes. “It’s really about the mom!”

Watch out world, the Gaffigan family is coming for you.

Comedian Jim Gaffigan already uses his experience as a dad to five kids as fodder for his stand-up work and The Jim Gaffigan Show, but he has even bigger plans on the way.

“I have five because I’m secretly starting my own nationality,” he jokes.

Or, Gaffigan says, he keeps adding to his brood to make himself a better person.

“I used to have this joke that each of kids has made me a more decent person and a better person, and based on that, all I would need is 34 more to be a decent guy,” Gaffigan, 50, says. “But I think there’s a patience you learn. Parenting — I don’t want to say it’s a cure for narcissism, but you can’t really be that obsessed with your self-interest when somebody’s screaming at night.”
