In the issue she talks Modern being on hiatus:
“Everyone else [on the show] goes off and does fancy films. I stay home and tie beach balls to the oak tree in the front yard so the kids have something to hit instead of me.”
She also talks being a working a mom:
“The boys are finally at an age where I find them so luscious and fantastic that I don’t want to be away if I don’t have to be. There is this sense of wanting to protect your family. Right now I want them to have a childhood and I don’t want them to be exposed to everything so fast. It’s such a gift to not to feel the pressure to go hunting down a job right now. I’m just lucky as hell.”
