Sheryl Crow ‘can’t stand’ how quickly her sons are growing up: ‘They’re slipping away’

Sheryl Crow talks about what it’s like to watch her sons grow up.

Crow recently opened up about how much of a rush becoming a mother has been for her, saying she “can’t stand” how quickly her children have grown. The singer is the mother of two sons, Wyatt, 15, and Levi, 12, whom she adopted in 2007 and 2010 respectively.

“My 15-year-old son, in about three months, is going to get his driver’s license, and you just feel like they’re tiny little toddlers, and the next thing they slip away. So, I am in every moment,” she said. “I don’t want to miss anything. And I won’t even be touring this summer because I want to make sure they want to be where I am and we can be together.”

Crow further explained how being a mother keeps her young in a way, explaining that children “make you see life differently” and that “they keep you on your feet. is just the gift that keeps on giving.”

One of the gifts Crow mentioned is that her kids keep her “educated on what’s current and what’s hitting right now”, saying that while her kids love country music, they’re also into pop music and to rap. She further explained that one of their favorite artists right now is Zach Bryan.

The “Can’t Cry Anymore” singer said seeing her children’s reaction to her nomination to join the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was a moment she will always remember, admitting that while she “wouldn’t say I am their favorite artist”, they were always very proud of her.

“In fact, my 15-year-old daughter called me today and said, ‘Mom, I’m so proud of you. I heard you were nominated,'” she said .

This isn’t the first time Crow has spoken about being a mom, opening up about her decision to adopt in an October 2021 episode of the “Making Space with Hoda Kotb” podcast, saying she didn’t expect to being a mom after her breakup with Lance Armstrong and a battle with breast cancer. She adopted her first son at 45 and her second at 48.

“The story I was telling myself was limiting what I thought I could have, until someone stepped in and said, ‘Wait a minute, your story doesn’t have to be like the story of your mother and your dad,’” she told Kotb. “Families are like all kinds of things.”

She previously told Yahoo Entertainment that “it wouldn’t have been (her) first choice to do it on her own” since she grew up in a “conventional household with two parents still married,” but once she out of that free space, she opened up to “so many amazing opportunities”.

Crow called the decision to adopt later in life a good thing, saying, “I had a knack for getting a lot out of my system before I had my kids, or before I had my kids,” and because of that, she “didn’t feel like she was missing anything” or ever wanted to be anywhere but with her children.

During the podcast, she also talked about the strong bond she has with her children.


“You don’t get the wrong kids. It just doesn’t happen that way. And my kids clearly not only chose me, they chose each other, and man, what a cool honor,” a- she declared. “I tell my kids all the time, ‘I’m so honored to be your mom.'”
