"We try to have quality time together. We go to the park. We go to the beach, even when it is cold. I consider myself to be very hands-on. I really enjoy spending time with my kids. I like picking them up from school and putting them in the bath."
"Being a mother is the hardest full-time job. I feel so overwhelmed by it. I am lucky because I have time with my kids now, and I can afford to have help. I'm always amazed by single mothers who work multiple jobs and have no help. I'm fortunate to be blessed with a job that's not really labor intensive. I'm [at Live with Regis and Kelly] at 8 a.m. and done by 10 a.m."

I'm able to devote the time that I think they need."
