Hoda Kotb talks joy of maternity leave
Tim McGraw shares the moment that inspired his health transformation“We’re so proud of our daughters because the world that they grew up in, it can easily make the kids turn out differently,” the singer told Hoda Kotb on Tuesday’s TODAY with Hoda & Jenna .
“And our girls are so grounded, they’re so humble. They have such big hearts, and they work hard at the things that they want to accomplish — and we’re really proud of them," the 52-year-old said. "We couldn’t ask for better kids. They’re smarter than us in so many ways.”
McGraw was really beaming in August when he of him and Gracie singing "What Kind of Fool" by Barbra Streisand and Barry Gibb while driving."PIPES!!!!!!......Dang, this girl can sing! Gracie and I having fun with Babs and Barry on our trip," he wrote.His daughters also keep his head on straight, too. McGraw, who has just released a book called “Grit & Grace: Train the Mind, Train the Body, Own Your Life,” detailing his weight loss , says he was spurred on to lose 40 pounds after Gracie pointed out that he was looking big when she saw him in a movie trailer.“And my face is the first thing that came on the screen, on a hundred-foot screen," McGraw recalled while on TODAY on Monday. "(I) was pretty swollen at that time. And my daughter looked at me, says, ‘Geez, Dad, you need to do something.' And that’s sort of a gut shot, right?”
Be strict about bedtime. A study published in 2013 in the journal Pediatrics found that seven-year-olds who had irregular bedtimes had more behavioral problems than did those with consistent bedtimes. And the longer the lack of a strict bedtime went on, the worse the problems became. If you work outside the home, it's tempting to keep kids up to have more time with them. But as much as possible, stay the course—even if that means you sometimes miss lights out. "We all make sacrifices," says Heather Taylor, Ph.D., a psychologist at the Morrissey-Compton Educational Center, in Redwood City, California. "Call or video-chat to say good night. Just be part of the routine."
