Jennifer Lopez knows that her 8-year-old twins with ex-husband Marc Anthony have little chance at a normal life, but she's figured out ways to keep them grounded.

"I'm not normal, so our life is not normal," J.Lo tells Fox 5 New York's Rosanna Scotto in an upcoming interview. "I've come to terms with that."

Despite that realization, the GRAMMY winner, who is currently in residence at the AXIS Theater in Las Vegas' Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, prides herself on finding time to be a hands-on mom to Maximilian and Emme despite her hectic schedule and frequent traveling.

"I want to be there with them," Lopez says. "I don't want to miss it. It's going to go so fast."

One approach to keeping the little tykes close is the occasional homeschooling session.

"They are super happy, well-adjusted, loving, caring kids, and that's the most important thing," she explains. "We'll get them educated. Homeschool is great for them when we have to do it. The most important thing is that they're with their mom -- that they don't feel abandoned by a parent."

She admitted not everyone is a fan of her parenting style, but she's trying to drown out the haters.

"Everybody's like, 'You should have them in school. They need friends,'" Lopez says. "It can drive you crazy."

Last week, J. Lo spoke to ET at the Emmy FYC event for her NBC drama, Shades of Blue, opening up about possibly expanding her family.

"I wish I could have a lot more [kids]," she told ET. "I wish. I don't know if it's in the cards for me, but it's something I would love to do."
