"I think this is ingenious marketing, but that princess thing sets off an alarm bell for me. [I'm afraid] all that might creep back into our culture. That a girl would aspire to be the Little Mermaid, a beautiful redhead with no legs who waits for her prince! Who literally gives up her voice! What are we doing? What is going on? I think my generation has been slightly tricked in that you're really encouraged to try to have it all . . . and sometimes your body will not let you wait as long as you want. I had to get back to work [after Alice was born]. NBC had me under contract; the baby and I only had a verbal agreement. We wrap shooting on a normal day by 7 p.m. Most times, I bring three or four writers home with me. I'll put Alice to bed before they come over, then we'll continue writing until I can no longer stay awake. It's very full. But I would be lying if I said there were not tears involved at home occasionally -- just occasionally. Last spring, my husband was trying to joke around with me. I was saying, 'Please stop talking. I'm trying to go to sleep,' and he kept talking. Out of the blue -- he still mentions it, that I had the most terrifying look on my face - and I just went 'STOP IT!!' and shoved him across the bed. The life of a working parent is constantly saying 'This is impossible,' and then you keep doing it. Ours was the generation of Title IX. It was like 'We're going to sign up for coed baseball, and you're going to play basketball . . ' It was a good time to be a girl. You know, watching The Bad News Bears -- it was takeover time."
