We all keep dreaming, and luckily, dreams really do come true.
I felt so proud to be having a baby and so excited. And I felt closer to other women - to my sisters, to my mom. I felt empowered, like, 'I've given birth. I did it! There's nothing I can't handle. I've really enjoyed this time that I have taken to be with Suri as well as the challenges of the first couple of months: feeding and pumping, learning to decipher what each cry means - is she hungry? Is she tired? Does she need a fresh diaper? - and figuring out how to really help her.
My family always keeps me in check. I have three older sisters, and they work their butts off. They're all very supportive of my career, but I know what's really important is kids and family.
It's important to try to be creative. I paint, and my mom is going to teach me how to make clothes. I think people should have passions.
I've kept in touch with a lot of my high school friends. When I'm home, I see them. It's really cool.
I know this sounds dorky, but I'm always having this out-of-body experience with my career. I can't wait to write it down. I can't wait to tell my grandchildren. It's amazing.
It's kind of fun being the cute, little one. In fact, I'm finding it hard to grow out of that.
