    Hilary Duff Told Her Son She "Sucks" At Being A Mom And His Response Was Too Cute

    I can't handle the cuteness.

    You probably know Hilary Duff as an actor and singer, but on top of all that she's also a mother to six-year-old Luca and is currently expecting her second child.

    And it's safe to say she's a devoted mom.

    However, in a new interview Hilary revealed that she has moments where she feels overwhelmed by juggling her career and motherhood, and went on to tell a story about how she once ended up saying she "sucked" at parenting in front of Luca.

    Speaking to InStyle, Hilary said:

    When I'm filming Younger, I'm in NYC for four months, and I try to make it home almost every weekend to see him because he can't miss school. So I happened to be home on a Friday or Monday, and I was just scrambling. It was just one of those mornings where everything that could have gone wrong, was wrong, and we were running late. I was burning the toast over and over again, and I think I had literally been through three pieces of toast. He was finishing his homework, and it was just crazy, and I was like, 'Oh my God, I just suck right now.' And I said it out loud.

    And then Hilary revealed her son's adorable response to her outburst.

    She said:

    He was like, 'What?' and I was like, 'I'm just I'm burning everything, I'm burning the toast, and I can't do anything right right now.' And he said, 'You don't suck, you're the best mommy. You're doing the best you can do. And I really like burnt toast.' I was like, 'You are the sweetest child. I can't even deal with you, thank you so much. I don't know what I did to deserve you.' He can just be really sweet in that way.

    I can't handle the cuteness.
