Essence Atkins took her little boy Varro to meet Santa Claus at the Jayneoni Holiday House in Los Angeles, Calif. on Sunday (November 18). No doubt this Christmas Varro will be getting extra presents.
The Are We There Yet? actress and her husband Jaime Mendez welcomed their son on Christmas day last year.
In an interview last month with Sheknows.com – Atkins talked about juggling her career with motherhood.
She said, “I’m a type-A person, and I think a lot of career women are. We have great expectations for our careers and for our children. And anytime anything falls short, we have a tendency to blame ourselves if we think we can do things at a greater capacity. We need to give ourselves permission to go with the ebbs and flows of life as there are always going to be mitigating circumstances. Not everything has to be perfect. We just have to do our best — sometimes that bar is higher than others.”
