“I aim to fill up her passport within the first year,” Mitchell, 32, revealed to PEOPLE last Wednesday at the launch of Pampers‘ Share the Love campaign in the Big Apple.
“She’s been to Vancouver, we’ve been to Paris, Vegas — she had a great time in Vegas! — and I’m from Toronto so we’ll be going there soon.”
“It’s exciting to take her to a new place that I’ve been and get to show her something new regardless of whether she’ll remember it or not. I will,” the new mom shares.
She goes on to share how Atlas “loves a plane almost more than I do,” but that doesn’t mean she feels the need to apologize for her daughter for being a baby.
“If she cries, she cries,” Mitchell says. “Anyone that comes on planes, I’m like, ‘You also cried on a plane in your life and it is what it is.’
Pampers’ new campaign that features Mitchell and model and cookbook author Chrissy Teigen is working to erase the mom guilt feelings.
“You really do have to tune out the negative comments and the mom shamers because I’m not going to focus my attention on that when there’s something way better to put my attention towards,” Mitchell says.
“The only thing that matters is when I come home and I see that little face and I know that I’m doing the best thing that I can and that’s all she could ever ask for.”
And when the day gets tough, the Canada native just needs a good laugh from Atlas to turn around her day.
“It’s the best thing on earth,” Mitchell says of her little one’s laugh. “It’s the best sound. If I can get a laugh out of her, I’m like, alright I’m good. Today’s great.”
