I feel like I’m a stay-at-home mom, which I was for the five years before this. She’s absolutely been my focus. That’s the choice I made. Desperate Housewives is perfect for me. I get to go back to work and still be able to take my daughter to school and pick her up.
My mom died of cancer when I was really young. I’m not someone who tries to work out their own stuff with a role, but I think that happened despite my best efforts to keep myself separate from it.
For me, just being how old I am, I know I don’t want to be a single mom. I really would rather make it a two-person job. But I’ve also come to terms with not being a mother at all. I’m actually really good with either direction that my life can take as being a valid experience.
My mom is in her mid-60s and has more energy and is more youthful than any human being I know. It’s pretty incredible.
