It's all about family for Tamera Mowry-Housley! Whether she's rebooting her iconic '90s TV sitcom "Sister, Sister" with real-life twin Tia Mowry-Hardrict, teaming up with husband Adam Housely for a new HGTV project or opening up about her 4-year-old son's struggles with bedwetting on behalf of GoodNites, family always comes first. Wonderwall.com chatted with the mother of two as part of her promotional duties for the nighttime underwear brand and got an inside look at how the "Sister, Sister" reboot is shaping up. Though Tamera couldn't say much, she did promise that the new show will be heavily influenced by her real life — as well as her sister's — as was the case during the original series' run. "We're gonna do the same thing this time," she told us. "We were just talking about that." As for whether or not the reboot will feature more of her original co-stars, she did say that "they're all ready" and waiting! While Tamera was less committal about whether or not her on-screen alter ego will have a mixed-race marriage — like she does in real life — the tight-lipped actress hinted, "You're onto something. You are onto something! That's all I'm gonna say." Keep reading for more highlights from our chat…

Tamera Mowry-Housley on the latest with the upcoming "Sister, Sister" reboot:
"We are still in the process [of finding producers and writers] right now because my sister and I want to make sure that we do it right and we have the right home. The thing is, interests have been piqued. So that is the positive in all of this. There are people who are excited and who want to be a part of it. Now we just have to choose the right people and have the right storyline and the right home."

Tamera Mowry-Housley on the HGTV project she recently shot with her husband, Adam Housley:
"Right now, I can't really say a lot. … My husband has been around construction all his life. His brother, Eric, has wanted to flip homes forever. We're not flipping home on this show, though. We are enhancing families' homes to their liking. I have fallen in love with interior design ever since I was 16 years old. My husband has a background in helping his dad build homes and stuff, and then he is impeccable at landscaping. So when we bought our home, I renovated almost the entire thing and he landscaped it. We realized that we actually love that. It's become like a hobby. I helped my friends interior design their apartments and their rented homes. So we wanted to work together and actually help families create spaces that they love. That's what the show is about. … Adam does all the demolition. I might hammer a nail or two. I do all the interior design … and he's gonna design the outside — like the landscaping area of the home. They give us a budget and we just got for it. We already have our first family that we're working with, and it's going to be absolutely stunning. It's so much fun!"

Tamera Mowry-Housley on her experiences with bedwetting with her 4-year-old son, Aden:
"It shouldn't be a sensitive topic. It shouldn't be an embarrassing topic because the reality is that there are a lot of children who take a little bit longer to be dry at night, and my son was one of those. I thought immediately that if my son was potty trained throughout the day, then he was automatically gonna be potty trained at night — and that's not the case. So as a parent, I was confused and I was frustrated, and my son and my husband picked up that same energy. Since I teamed up with GoodNites nighttime underwear, I realized that I am not alone. It is totally normal for children to take a little bit more time to be dry at night."
Tamera Mowry-Housley on GoodNites:
"What I love about them is that they're discreet. They are a nighttime underwear — they're not like a big diaper. My son was able to realize the difference, and he felt a little more confident. He felt a little more comfortable. … We co-sleep still — there's nothing wrong with that! [GoodNites helped us] know that we were all going to be comfortable. We weren't going to wake up in a puddle of liquid. Aden was gonna be OK and my husband and I were gonna be OK. I can honestly say that I think because my son had that confidence and felt safe and everybody knew that things were gonna be OK when everybody woke up, he is now totally potty trained."
Tamera Mowry-Housley on how her 2-year-old daughter, Ariah, is different when it comes to co-sleeping:
"My daughter wants nothing to do with me at night. I tried to get her in the bed one time, and she did not have it. These kids are different. She loves her own time, her own bed, her own space. She is very, very, very independent — and I support that as well. My son is my cuddler."
Tamera Mowry-Housley on where she is with potty training her daughter, Ariah:
"I have not [potty trained her] yet, but the coolest thing is that I now know what to look for and what not to stress about. She is showing the signs and telling me when she has gone in her diaper — and also she's a lot more dry. Those are usually the signs to know that it's time to potty train."
Tamera Mowry-Housley on how she deals with frustration as a parent:
"You have to realize that you're human. As a parent, there are gonna be times when you're able to keep it together, breathe and be the best example for your child. And then there are times when you're just gonna blow up. Try not to blow up more than being calm. I studied psychology, so maybe this helped me: Realize that a child doesn't have that logic reasoning ability until they're a lot older. So you're the one who has to teach them to get through their struggles. I'm teaching my children right now to have emotional intelligence because I think that's one of the things our world is lacking right now. It takes time. It also takes you as a parent looking outside of yourself — calm down and realize what kind of example you are setting for your children. So that's what I like to do. I like to just breathe and take a step back. But my sister tells me this all the time: She's like, 'Tamera, you've been gifted with patience. I don't know how you do that.' But maybe that has a lot to do with it."
