Kendrick says she's "nowhere close to being enough of a grown-up" to consider motherhood, although she's not ruling it out down the line. She's glad she's been able to first pursue her dream. In fact, Kendrick's mother paved the way by setting a good example.
"I grew up with a working mom," Kendrick says. "So that was always normal to me. But I remember one time a neighbor who was a stay-at-home mom came over and criticized my mother for making one big batch of pancakes and then freezing what was left so we could take them out and eat them all week. And my dad overheard her, and he just let her have it! Why do moms do that to each other? Because you know what? We loved those pancakes! We did."
