Mom Katie Holmes reveals: Suri is not complete if she doesn’t do her chores!

Suri Cruise may wear $635 dresses, fierce designer shoes and chic floral headbands but at home, she gets treated like any other kid and has to help her mom, Katie Holmes, do stuff around the house. And the 4-year-old is very conscientious about doing the right thing. “If she doesn’t get her chores done, I notice she’s not really herself,” tells Marie Claire in a new interview.

Considering that Suri’s dad Tom Cruise is one of the richest stars in Hollywood and owns private jets and multimillion dollar houses, it’s a little hard to believe, but we’ll take Katie’s word for it. And what exactly is on the 4-year-old’s list of daily chores? “She has to make her bed, she has to take her dishes to the sink, she has to put her clothes in the laundry — you know, that basic stuff,” Katie, 31, says of her daughter. When she and Tom, 48, are traveling, she tries to keep the same routine. “We travel a lot, and so for me, it’s keeping a daily schedule for Suri that never changes,” Katie says. “We wake up, and we do the same thing.”

Katie also tells the magazine that for now Suri is her priority, so there are no more kids on the agenda anytime soon. “Maybe in a couple of years,” Katie says, “but right now I want to make sure I’m really there for Suri.”
