Motherhood is all about balance: Balancing work and kids, balancing being a wife and a mother, balancing loving your children and wishing they’d stop driving you completely crazy!

In PEOPLE’s latest Mom Talk video, celebrity moms open up about the times when they thought their kids might make them lose it — an all-too-familiar feeling for moms everywhere.

” ‘Mama. Mama. Mama.’ That can make you want to go insane,” Molly Sims shares.

But that’s the least of her worries. “My son Brooks, who’s 3, came in and his chin was cut open. Eight stitches, plastic surgeon,” she recalls. “But at the same time all this was going down, [my daughter Scarlett] was, like, screaming at the top of her lungs and I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh!’ I turned to my husband and I’m like, ‘Holy s—! What are we gonna do!’ ”

And with her little man’s 5th birthday right around the corner, Kerr is already starting to figure out how they’re going to celebrate his special day.

“Definitely a party — lots of balloons, his friends. I’m trying to [think] what would the theme be,” Kerr shares. “He’s really into train sets at the moment. He’s got a wooden train set. I’m thinking what I could do with the train set.”

Since her children aren’t babies anymore, Angelina Jolie Pitt has to get her “baby fix” somewhere else: on set.

Jolie Pitt, 41, is currently in Cambodia where she’s filming her next movie First They Killed My Father, which has scenes that require hundreds of children.

“I’m surrounded by toys,” Jolie Pitt told PEOPLE from her production office in Southeast Asian country. “We have 250 children in a scene, so I filled the house, my car, my trailer with toys. It’s my ‘I love babies’ fix.”

First They Killed My Father is about the Khmer Rouge genocide. She says she’s worried “this is going to be the hardest movie” on her maternal side.

“They have to go through a labor camp,” Jolie Pitt says. “They have to cry and scream. My instinct is to want to cut and hug everyone.”

JoAnna Garcia Swisher Loves Dressing Her Daughter Up Like Her Mini-Me (Whether She Likes It or Not)

11/19/2015 at 09:30 AM ET

JoAnna Garcia Swisher loves the tiny toddler fashions available to dress her daughter Emerson Jay in — unfortunately, the 2-year-old doesn’t quite feel the same way.

“I love dressing Emme up like a little mini,” she says in an interview for Eva Amurri Martino‘s lifestyle blog, Happily Eva After. “It’s truly one of my favorite things to do. I was warned she might not always be amenable to wearing what I have hand picked for her, but never knew how sad and frustrating it would be when she put her foot down.

The Astronaut Wives’ Club star says her daughter is partial to rain boots and costumes from Disney’s Frozen — in particular, Elsa dresses from Target.

“She even has strong opinions about what I wear,” the 36-year-old, who will next guest-star on Grandfathered, shares. “She’s quick to let me know if she isn’t impressed, but if she gives me her stamp of approval as I’m walking out the door, I can’t help but feel like a million bucks.”
