We were gushing over how cute Jen and Violet were last week, so much so that you all thought Jen should hurry up and have another one. Many of you even thought Violet looks just like her mommy. While Jen was making the rounds for her latest movie, Catch and Release, she spoke about how wonderful it was to have time off to just be a mom. Here's more:
Q: What was it like having that time away from your career?
A: Well, you know, it's kind of been heaven. All of the above. After "Alias," of course, I was terrified and didn't know if I was going to hate having time on my own and fall apart, or if I was going to embrace it. And really I have to say, having a baby fills your life in such a way that no matter what you're doing, there's something bigger. Whether you're working or not, you care more about your own life. I've just been in heaven being with her the past year.
Q: Did having a baby make you think of your own mother?
A: Of course, yeah. Now I call her and say, "You know all the dinners you made that I said 'No' to and ate peanut butter instead?" Now I say, "I get it, Mom." You know, I slaved over roasting this and making that, and she's "No, no, no."
