In July, the “Jungle Cruise” actress opened up about the challenges of balancing her career and motherhood on the Table For Two podcast.

“It’s one of those things when people are like, ‘How do you balance it?’ I never feel like I’m doing it right, you know,'” Blunt said.

“But this year I’m not working. I worked quite a bit last year and my oldest baby is 9, so we’re in the last year of single digits. And I just feel there are cornerstones to their day that are so important when they’re little."

The 40-year-old actress said she wants to be there for more of the everyday moments with her kids.

“And it’s, ‘Will you wake me up? Will you take me to school? Will you pick me up? Will you put me to bed?’ And I just need to be there for all of them for a good stretch. And I just felt that in my bones,” she said, adding that some “intense” and “time-consuming” projects last year took a toll on her family life and made her rethink her work-life balance.

“The ones that are time-consuming I think, for me, are becoming few and further between because of just the emotional cost on me, on the kids, on balance,” she continued.

While Blunt confessed to feeling “guilt” when she has to be away from her daughters for work, her husband of 13 years sees her as a supermom.

In June, Krasinski, 43, told E! News that his wife was “being the hero at home,” saying her support was essential while he was busy filming four seasons of his hit series Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan.

“Her support through this show is what’s made it possible for me,” Krasinski said.

“Not only in the logistics of having to travel the world constantly, and being supportive, and making sure my kids didn’t abandon me when I had to go to these countries and shoot.”

As for her kids, Blunt recently joked that they are not impressed by her Hollywood career; they just see her as “Mom.”

“When I see myself up on a billboard, I have this complete dissociation with it … I’m like, ‘Who’s that?’” she said in a cover interview for Harper’s BAZAAR UK’s July/August issue.

“And I can see my children doing the same — they might say, ‘Oh, there’s Mama,’ but it’s not exciting for them.”

“What’s exciting for them is when I can pick them up from school and take them swimming,” she added.
