Melissa Joan Hart claims that mothering three children is way less challenging since she gave birth to her sons years apart from one another.

The 36-year-old actress is mother to seven-year-old Mason, four-year-old Brady and five-month-old Tucker.

Melissa is happy that her eldest are able to take care of themselves while she and her musician husband Mark Wilkerson parent their newborn.

“It’s definitely easier to have an infant when the other two boys are potty trained and can dress themselves,” she revealed to People magazine.

“I’m able to enjoy every single minute, and that has been great.”

Melissa and her beau weren’t together on Valentine’s Day.

Although they were physically separate, the couple still managed to make the day special.

“Valentine’s Day is my first day back at work [on TV show Melissa & Joey], so I will be enjoying the day with the great cast and crew,” she Melissa revealed.

“We usually celebrate the day before or the day after anyhow since it’s difficult getting a babysitter that night and it’s so crowded everywhere.”

Melissa has partnered up with charities Operation Shower and Birdies for the Brave to provide baby showers for military families.

She is happy to give joy to serviceman and women.

“I can’t even imagine how difficult it is for these military moms going through pregnancy alone while their spouses are in harm’s way. It’s an emotional time, especially with all of the hormones,” Melissa said.

“Operation Shower and Birdies for the Brave do a great job of making these moms feel special and recognising all of their sacrifices at home. It’s a sincere pleasure to support these two outstanding organisations.”

Expressing your creative side is strongly advised. Take this opportunity to write, paint or play music. Relatives may not appreciate your work, but that doesn't matter. The important thing is to satisfy your own taste. People who are daring and experimental will appreciate your efforts. Don't be surprised if you're given a chance to showcase your work in a magazine, boutique or gallery. Fame and acclaim can be yours, so long as you're willing to follow your instincts.More
