Her husband Tobey Maguire may be a household name, but busy mom Jennifer Meyer has a pretty impressive career of her own. A jeweler, her pieces are often seen on some of Hollywood’s hottest stars. Jennifer recently chatted to ChildMode.com about how she finds time for work while raising kids Ruby, 4, and Otis, 1 1/2.
On balancing kids and career: “I think as most working mothers will tell you, you do the best you can each and every day. Ultimately, my family comes first, which means I have to rely on my incredible production team to help me get everything done.”
On her budding fashionista: “Ruby loves getting dressed up, and has recently become interested in making jewelry. I’ve taken Ruby to the bead store and she’s made some really amazing jewelry!”
On her kids’ early bond: “They are adorable together! Ruby is very protective of Otis. And in the morning the first thing Otis says is ‘Rube. Rube.’ Because he can’t pronounce Ruby yet.”
On finding time for creativity: “Although my family and work keep me busy, I always pay attention to my surroundings. You can find inspiration in the most interesting, unexpected places.”
