She appreciates even the parts of pregnancy that most disparage because the whole process of having a baby is pretty amazing. (Lincoln is her eldest daughter, btw.) Next up, some quality parenting advice straight from the source!

Kristen doesn’t let rough days get her down.

Bell told Babble: “If my child is acting a fool in the grocery store, the embarrassment is on her. In truth, that shouldn’t make me feel a certain way. She’s going to act the way a child acts, and I’m not going to let that reflect on me or bring me down."

Dax Shepard has a sense of humor about his Costco runs.

Everyone knows Costco is where the party is at!

They know how to keep their cool—by tag-team parenting!

Kristen Bell told People: “We switch kids all the time. [If] I’m talking to the [two-year-old] and I’m done, I’ll just be like, 'We’ve got to switch. I don’t want to talk to this kid anymore.’"

They both get their hands dirty.

Changing diapers is never fun, and ideally, both parents are prepared to do it!

And Kristen Bell makes an effort to teach her daughters important life lessons.

Leading positively by example and showing her kids that they can, too. Now that’s motherhood! Dax Shepard has some pretty poignant advice too, on the next page!

It’s pretty great advice for anyone, really.

They’re firm when it comes to the health of their children.

The couple is pro-vaccine, and they enforce that when it comes to their daughters. Bell told The Hollywood Reporter: “When Lincoln was born [in March 2013], the whooping cough epidemic was growing, and before she was 2 months old, we simply said [to friends], 'You have to get a whooping cough vaccination if you are going to hold our baby.’"

Here’s Kristen Bell’s adorable birthday message to her youngest daughter, Delta.

Both parents make an effort to be attentive and honest with their kids.

“You don’t want to be reactive to your kids. You want to be thoughtful, and you want to be setting a good example. It’s not about perfection, but it is about being thoughtful," Bell told Us Weekly.

And last, but not least, they picked the best (and goofiest) way to usher in the era of parenthood!
