“The thing I love about [Stephen] is that he’s not too cool for school,” Ayesha says. “He’ll get down on the floor and play with the girls."

It was Riley Curry’s adorable antics that stole the show at a post-game press conference last May, thrusting the entire Curry family into the spotlight.

In an interview with Parents Magazine, Stephen and Ayesha Curry talk how much work it takes to parent two amazing little girls.

“The amount of stuff you get done in a day is insane,” says Ayesha. “Like what were we doing with our time before kids? It’s an event to get all four of us out of the house at once. When we get in the car and we’ve brought everything and everybody has socks on, it’s like a dream come true.”

She also shares that husband Stephen Curry is along for the ride.

“The thing I love about him is that he’s not too cool for school,” Ayesha says. “He’ll get down on the floor and play with the girls. He’ll put on dress-up clothes if he has to, and he’s very patient, which is something I’m not. We balance each other out.”

For Stephen parenting is about being there to watch his daughters grow up.

“I think about the milestones from my childhood, and what it will be like to watch our kids go through them,” Stephen says. “Taking Riley to her first day of school was a whirlwind. I can’t imagine what middle school is going to be like, and high school, and gradation.”

“All those little checkpoints are going to be fun, and there will be ups and downs along the way. Watching our children go through those life experiences will be amazing,” he adds.
