As any parent will tell you, raising children is filled with ups and downs. Even for celebs. Brooke Burke can attest to this fact as she has just experienced an extreme high and low, all within the span of 24 hours.

Last night, the mom of four got all dolled up in a pink belly-baring ensemble and hit the Teen Choice Awards with her pretty 16-year-old daughter, Neriah. “So happy 2B @neriahFburke’s plus 1. #TeenChoiceAwards @isabelleBanham ❤️????” she proudly gushed on Instagram, making sure to also give a shout-out to her fun outfit, “OMG this summer color!” The mother-daughter duo sweetly held hands as they posed for photogs, though Neriah didn’t appear to be nearly as excited about attending the event as her mom did. We’re going to assume that her closed-mouth smile had more to do with normal teenage ’tude and her red carpet mood. It wasn’t an “Omigah, I’m with my mom!” face.

So happy 2B @neriahFburke ’s plus 1. #TeenChoiceAwards @isabelleBanham ❤️???? OMG this summer color!

Less than 24 hours later, Burke, 44, posted a photo of a hammer next to a smashed iPad, black shards splayed all around. Her caption seemingly planted this little bit of mayhem squarely on 8-year-old son Shaya Braven’s shoulders. “When curiosity makes u do Terrible things!!!!!My son wanted to look inside the iPad! ???????????? 1st time I’ve been speechless.”

Ah, the joys of parenthood. Every day can’t be a walk down the red carpet.
