She said, “I am not putting them to bed right now, I’m here, and that’s really hard on me. But at the same time, it’s what I do, so when I do my work, I want to be inspired. I want to bring home something they’ll be proud of and they’ll look back and go, ‘Wow, Mom was alright’.”

It’s hard. I love it there, but the older I get the more I miss, specifically, California.”
