Kids say and do hilarious (and sometimes the grossest and/or embarrassing) things. As a result, all parents have crazy stories about their kids—including celebrities. Below are a collection of funny celebrity parenting stories that made us laugh — and, boy, can most parents relate.

4. Molly Sims
Molly Sims’ daughter, Scarlett May, likes being naked. But Sims is just getting a taste of her own medicine. Apparently, when Molly was a toddler, she also wasn’t a fan of wearing clothes. Scarlett isn’t shy either; she answered the door buck naked. Can you say karma?

6. Alyson Hannigan
In another moment of truth, actor Alyson Hannigan (star of How I Met Your Mother, the American Pie movies, and the Buffy the Vampire TV series, sent out this Tweet about an interaction with her kids.

She’s like ‘What are you doing?’ I’m like, ‘It’s 2:15 I’m trying to sleep.’ Or she’ll come in with a book and it’s like 3:20. And she’s just reading, she’s like ‘You wanna read this book?!’”
