During an appearance on The Tonight Show, the 47-year-old told the host that her son Louis is “probably the best baby in the world, but I think every parent says that.”
Aged just 2 years, he is a “flirt,” according to his mother, who also added that the little one “appreciates the fairer sex.”
“He doesn’t flirt with me like that, and someone told me that’s probably a good thing,” she joked.
“He’s got a look where he just cuts the eyes at the ladies, and I’m like, ‘I’m so sorry! I don’t know what’s happening.’”
Sandra, who admitted she’s a very protective mother, said that she looked up to her late mother, German opera singer, Helga Meyer, in trying to be a good parent.
“My mother was very strict, but rightfully so. She just didn’t want me in a car with any boys whatsoever until I was 18. Apparently she knew what went on there and I wanted to find out,” she said.
“I was allowed to go on a date twice, to a dance, but I had to call every 20 minutes. I do feel she knew something that I didn’t,” she recalled, discretely hinting at her ex Jesse James’ cheating way.
The Academy Award winner also gushed about spending her second Christmas with son Louis.
She said: “I don’t think he understands the concept, but he does understand that everything at his height level is really bright with lots of lights. He doesn’t get it yet but I think next year he’ll get it and demand things.”
And as far as presents are concerned, she told Leno that she must break the law to get what she wants.
“Basically now since my mother passed we break the law because we have to manage to smuggle German sausages into the country and apparently bringing meat across the waters is against the law,” she explained.
“So literally we send out, you know, SOS to about five people that they should send us meats.”
“So it has to be German sausages?” the host asked.
“It has to be, they’re from Nuremburg,” Sandra explained. “Say it the American way or people go ‘Why do you say it the German way? And they’re these little sausages that you just have them shipped in and you fry them up with some sauerkraut and potato salad, but they have to be the right ones because they sell a lot that are imposters.”
