When I started the HollywoodMom website, I envisioned leisurely days spent at my desk on my computer with a cup of coffee by my side, and my garden’s latest blooms on the table next to me. I envisioned calm hours while my children were at school and me and my thoughts would blend together and flow out of me and onto my website. I envisioned picking up my children at 3 o’clock from school with manicured nails, beautiful clothes (think Banana Republic Ad here), and a happy smile on my face, all the while knowing that I had put in my time at the computer and had created magnificent blog entries. Of course dinner would be simmering on the stove as I sat down and did homework with my children. Laughing, giggles, and my brilliant homework solutions would all be part of my vision. HA!
Everyone asks me what is my secret for having (knock on wood here) such hard working and successful children.
Both my son and daughter are involved in theatre and are pursuing careers in the entertainment business at an early age.
When my son was freshman in high school 2 years ago many of his friends found time on Friday and Saturday nights to get together and look for ways to entertain themselves. That word ‘entertain’ has very loose meaning, btw. Too much down time at a very critical age in my opinion…
