Reese Witherspoon sometimes embarrasses her two children, according to an interview with "Parents" magazine.

As an example, the Oscar-winning actress tells the story of taking her daughter Ava, 9, to see country singer Carrie Underwood.

"She said, 'Mom I really appreciate you taking me to the concert, but will you please not embarrass me in front of Carrie Underwood by singing because she's a real singer and you're just, like a movie singer," said Witherspoon, who won a Best Actress Oscar for playing singer June Carter Cash in 2005's "Walk the Line."

She added that she loves to sing around the house and in the car, but her daughter "hates it."

Witherspoon says that she's grateful that Ava her son Deacon, 5, only see her as their mom. "Realizing you're not anything special to the kids is always a great sort of reminder that you're just a regular person," she said. "A regular embarrassing old mom."

My boys (6 and 3) call me the “kissy Mom” and my 6 year old won’t let me kiss him before entering the play yard at school, it’s too embarassing! LOL!

Sounds like a completely normal family (who except for meeting Carries Underwood!). How refreshing.
Too bad the title of article is a little misleading.
