This is my feeling, every Sunday Night, as I scramble to set hours for the sitter, arrange and re-arrange auditions, meetings, exercise, eating.....The list could go on and on. Status update: Hairs done? NOPE...at 7 am I will be braiding Yara's hair, conditioning Sayeed's hair and wrestling Ehsan to get close to his mop of curls. My hair, you wonder? It looks like a hot mess! So I will be up at 6 am to twist and pray that I have no auditions on Monday so my hair will dry in time to be ready for the rest of the week. WHEW!!!
What have I done? I have set higher, loftier goals. I MUST NOT BE BUSY ENOUGH! The reality is, even though this business feels all consuming at times, I know that I am where I am supposed to be. I also know that my lofty goals were whispered in my ear by a higher power, and that I didn't pull them out of my.....you know.
Off I go, wish me luck!
Commercial Mommy is how my friends describe me. In fact, it's how I describe myself. A Los Angeles based actress, juggling the every day demands of co-parenting three children, who are also actors. I know that I am not alone in this circus feat! I have been successful in helping my kids create careers, remain accelerated in school and evolve into beautiful human beings. By sharing my journey, strategies and insights.....I hope to be of assistance AND inspiration to all of the other commercial mommies and daddies in the biz!
