Actress Sarah Jessica Parker can be as glamorous as she wants, but my favorite photos of her are when she's about town in a pair of jeans, taking her kid to school and looking like a regular mom.

In the cover story of the March issue of Harper's Bazaar, Parker comes off as just that: a modern mom who deals with Lego blocks, has a son who doesn't care when she's dressed up, and takes her kid to the public library.

The article focuses on the launch of Parker's latest fragrances, along with Parker's tribute to fashion legend Diana Vreeland, who was Harper Bazaar's fashion editor from 1936 to 1962. But what I most enjoyed about the story were the tidbits of information that shed some light on Parker's life as a mom to six-year-old son James Wilke. (His dad is Parker's husband, Matthew Broderick.)

On spotting the "Sex in the City" tour bus when she's with her kid:

"...There are times when I'm like, Oh, God, I'd better run in the other direction. Especially when I'm with my son."

On what James Wilke thinks when his mom dresses up:

"Now, if I would dress up in Legos, he would be very interested."

On parents taking their children to the neighborhood library:

"It will give them a real sense of independence to have their own library card and enjoy borrowing books."
