But following the actress's divorce from Tom Cruise and her six-year-old becoming more independent as she starts her new life at school – the mother-daughter duo had very different Monday mornings.
Katie is showing that she is intent on having as normal a life as possible and took another trip on the subway in New York City today.
She was heading to rehearsals for her new Broadway show Dead Accounts in Manhattan which is just a few short stops from her apartment.
It's the second time that Katie has been seen on the mode of public transport and is a complete departure from the private jets and limos that she enjoyed when married to the Mission Impossible star.
Meanwhile, a sleepy looking Suri arrived for school looking adorable in her uniform.
