No matter how you spin it, motherhood is a tough gig, just ask celeb moms Elana Afrika-Bredenkamp, Rozanne McKenzie and Philicity Reeken.
The three entertainers may be best known for their talents on screen and on-air, but to their kids, they're just 'Mommy!'
With two kids each, the entertainers say that motherhood during lockdown has come with its ups and downs.
"I am a working mom. Guilt is a major factor when raising children - you always wonder whether you are spending enough time with them," says Elana who is mom to girls, Esther Beth and Annabelle.
With both her kids still at a young age, Elana says she relies on a schedule to keep things consistent but not too much.
"I have created a schedule, and everyone in the house follows it. And if we don't, it's not a train smash."

With two teenage daughters, Simone and Zhara, single mom Philicity says her family's been keeping busy with "lots of art, exercise, cooking, baking and watching very random TV shows."
And if anything's proven an issue between herself and her girls, it's been too much screen time and arguments about "who ate all the snacks!"
For Rozanne, keeping her son James and daughter Fallon occupied during lockdown has involved books and trampolines.
"We're lucky to have a nice big garden for them to run around in and the trampoline also helps. They love reading and doing puzzles. They both have lots of schoolwork, so we have online lessons and activities we have to do at home."
So what's their secret to keeping afloat while parenting during lockdown?
"Do what you can and don't beat yourself up for not being able to be everything for everyone," says Rozanne, who also recommends that parents "take time for themselves."
If you're raising teens, Philicity says it's all about "picking your battles."
"Also acknowledge that they are their own person not a mini version of you. Let them know that you are there for them no matter what."
According to Elana, successful parenting is all about "joy, happiness and brushing their teeth."
"Only because teeth have to last forever. The rest changes every day."
