Sure, Victoria Beckham always looks so cool, calm and collected — and super stylish — but she finds being a mom just as challenging as the rest of us do!

From what we can see, Victoria Beckham and her husband, soccer star David Beckham, are awesome parents to sons Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 5. But in the new issue of Marie Claire magazine, the former Spice Girl admits that being a mom is hard work! “Hmm …. well, you know when you get a TV, you get a manual? Well, there isn’t one for motherhood,” she jokes. “I’m constantly trying to figure it out and questioning whether I’m doing it right.”

The 36-year-old, who has been married to David, 35, for 11 years, is definitely a hands-on mother. Victoria is seen out and about with her boys — going for ice cream or sitting on the sidelines with them at soccer matches — and the quality time she and David spend with them explains why her boys are so well adjusted, despite being the children of international stars. “I’m so proud [of] my kids. They are very well-mannered,” Victoria says. “We’ve always been very strict with the kids. That’s the way David and myself were brought up. But they’re free spirits as well. They laugh. They joke. They have fantastic personalities. I love hanging out with them.”

And Victoria knows how to teach her boys a lesson — a money lesson that is! “The other day we got up early to have breakfast and I was teaching them about American money,” she explains. “I had Post-Its on all the breakfast cereal. On the bread. On the milk. I got a box of fake money from Toys’R’Us. ‘All right,’ I told them at 6 a.m. ‘We’re going to learn about American money. I’m going to make you buy your breakfast.’ I hand them all a bit of the money. They were all just waking up and going, ‘Mum, we just want our Coco Puffs.’ And I’m going, ‘Coco Puffs! Cost one dollar twenty!’”

It is obvious that the Beckhams are a close-knit and fun-loving family and that could definitely be because Victoria and David have such a wonderful relationship. “We are still so close, David and I,” Victoria says. “We were at a party the other day at my mum’s house and I was sitting on his lap. We’re very affectionate. We were the only couple who were even near each other at that party. We’re soul mates.”
