"I don't want the show to end, but I sometimes think I would be so happy if it did and I could just move away from it all," the 37-year-old mother of three admits to YOU magazine. "By the end of every season I’ve had enough, but then once we have had a break I'm ready for more."
Kourtney confesses that she struggles sometimes with describing her profession. "When I fill out a form at passport control I always struggle with what to say when it asks for my profession: businesswoman or TV personality or mom," she quips. "I mean, number one is always mom."
While the family's reality shows have made Kourtney and her sisters favorites with the paparazzi, she sometimes forgets that she's famous. "I don’t live my life thinking, 'I’m a role model,'" she touts. "I still feel surprised when I’m recognized in the street. I forget that so many people know who I am and have seen me give birth."
Cameras were rolling when Kourtney delivered her oldest children, Penelope, 4, and Mason, 6, and have also been there through her breakup with her longtime boyfriend and the father of her children, Scott Disick. "I find co-parenting really easy," she shares. "Scott and I communicate all the time. You have to keep discussing what’s going on because as the children grow older, the rules need to be renegotiated. We make sure we go on days out together because the kids love it, but it’s really hard when you’re at the zoo and there are cameras in your face all day."
Kourtney also says that it was her original goal not to have her kids on KUWTK at all, but that proved difficult. "I wanted the children to feel free to run about where they wanted -- it’s their home, after all -- so it was easier to let them," she explains. "They have known the crew all their lives and the team are very respectful about leaving at 6 p.m., when I like to have family time."
The reality star adds that she hopes raising her two sons around such strong women in her family will prove beneficial. "Hopefully they will appreciate a woman who is strong and assertive, and see that as an asset, not as threatening," Kourtney exclaims. "I think in today’s world that’s the way you want a woman to be, but a lot of men can’t handle that. Get with the program, guys!"
