"I want all of my kids to be one hundred percent who they are," the mom of four reveals
Kim Kardashian is embracing everything it means to be a mom.
Appearing in the latest issue of CR Fashion Book, the SKIMS co-founder, 42, talks about her life as a mom and learning to appreciate her kids as individuals.
"The days are so long but the years are so short. I love the night snuggles, I love our morning madness before school — I love it all. Even when it seems overwhelming, I know that my babies will grow up and I will wish for the days of tantrums and the cute little PJs and bath time and book time. So, I cherish it all!"
Discussing her kids, she proudly shared, "Each one of my babies is so different and I love that and try to nurture that."
"Lately, I have been traveling with each of my children separately to take them on some one-on-one time exploring different cultures and worlds. And at the same time, doing things that they are passionate about," she continued.
"For example, Saint loves soccer so I’ve enjoyed traveling the world to see games and really bonding with him through the sport. I want all of my kids to be one hundred percent who they are."

As they grow up, Kim's hope is that "my children will cherish the family community that we’ve tried to instill," noting their closeness with her siblings and their kids.
"For my whole family, we all live close together and the cousins feel like siblings. It’s so special they all have each other," she says.
Reflecting on her parenting style, Kim shares that she's a mix of both of her own parents. "My parents had different parenting styles and I learned from both of them," The Kardashians star said of her upbringing by mom Kris Jenner and late dad Robert Kardashian Sr.
"My dad was strict but very fair and always calm. I never heard him yell," she recalled. "He talked everything through no matter how much trouble we might have been in."
When it came to the beloved momager, 67, "My mom was more frantic and way more chill with rules."
"I definitely have aspects from both my parents," Kim says of her parenting style. "I have the best parents in the entire world and feel so lucky that I got to see those examples and learn from them. The biggest lesson is that our kids will do what they see, not always what they are told, and I saw the most loving and smart examples."
Last month, the mom of four highlighted the one-of-a-kind Mother’s Day gift she received from her kids in spring of this year — jeans with their own artwork on them.
Sharing a glimpse at the pants on her Instagram, Kardashian wrote in her caption that the jeans are one of several creative clothing pieces that she’s been gifted on the annual springtime holiday throughout the years.
“I just love my babies!” she began. “For Mothers Day this year they made me these jeans and they were so happy when they saw me wear their work [of] art! Every Mothers Day they have drawn on clothing for me that I will keep forever!”
“I love seeing their personalities shine through their art,” Kardashian continued. "You can tell which one of my kids drew on what side of these jeans. From Psalm’s foot and hand print to Saint’s soccer drawings, North’s backwards letters and Chi’s hearts…I will cherish these forever!"
