Angela Kinsey has a mini-me on her hands: her 8-year-old daughter Isabel Ruby.

“She’s so sweet,” the former star of The Office, 45, tells PEOPLE. “She loves to draw me notes. She writes, ‘Mom, I love you. You’re the best mom ever.’ ”

As if that wasn’t enough warm fuzziness, there’s more.

“She has this expression she made up,” she explains. “I don’t know where it came from, but it absolutely makes my heart melt. She says, ‘Mom, I love you with the hope of my heart.’ I don’t even know what that means, but it’s so sweet.”

Jim Gaffigan is known for being real about parenting, both in his hilarious stand-up routines and on his TV Land series The Jim Gaffigan Show.

And in real life, the actor and comedian is no different, admitting he can’t even choose one parenting moment he’d do over if he could because there are so many.

“Parenting is all about making mistakes and dealing with a certain level of guilt,” the father of five, 50, tells PEOPLE as his younger daughter, 7-year-old Katie Louise, joins him.

“Right, Katie? It is Katie, right?” he asks his daughter. “That’s called a dad joke.”

Sara Rue‘s daughter Talulah may only be 3½, but she’s already inherited her mom’s penchant for comedy.

“She really does have a good sense of humor, and she’s able to laugh at herself. I am so grateful for that,” the actress, 37, tells PEOPLE. “And she started telling jokes.”

The star of TV Land’s Impastor says her little girl even has a signature one-liner that gets her and husband Kevin Price, 41, laughing every time.

“The best thing she says — and she says it all the time — is after me explaining, for example, ‘We can’t have sugar this late at night because it will keep you up or it might give you a tummy ache,’ she’ll look at me and just say, total deadpan, ‘I’m okay with that.’ ”

Being a mom to 3½-year-old son Aden John Tanner and daughter Ariah Talea, 13 months, has helped Tamera Mowry-Housley to have a new appreciation for the little things.

“They have taught me to be present and enjoy the most simple things in life,” The Real cohost, 38, tells PEOPLE of her children with husband Adam Housley. “It gives me so much joy, especially as a busy mom, just giving them a bath, reading them a book, brushing our teeth together. They taught me how to have fun in the most simple moments.”

One of her favorite things to do with her kids is finger painting.

“Aden’s loved it ever since he was 6 months, so I wanted to introduce finger painting to Ariah,” says Mowry-Housley. “I love seeing the curiosity on Aden’s face, and now Ariah‘s. It’s cool to see them do it together.”

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.

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.”
