    "I'm not someone who [lives] like, 'OK, this is a museum and you can't sit here and you can't touch this and everything has to be put in its place — [the kids] live here as much as we do. You come into our house and a giant elephant and lion are welcoming you. We have toys and things everywhere."

    On distracting the kids: I'll bring my BlackBerry, and everybody wants it. But bring one that's a few seasons old for them to play with and they look at you like, "Nice try." Even kids under 2 seem to have a sense for technology and what the latest product is."

    "As a working mother, the last thing on my mind when I'm trying to get my son out the door and to school on time is how I look. I still love clothes, but they just don't fit into my life the way they used to. For work, I get to dress up and somebody does my hair and makeup, and its like a little holiday for a few hours. But for everyday, it would be foolish to spend more time on my outfit than I do on my son."
  • Julianne Moore 13 of 13

    "My advice for new moms is to take as much time off as you can at the beginning. That was the best advice I was given. Take the time because your child will never be that little again. I took six months with my son, Cal, and a year with Liv."
