Where have you been, girl?! So it turns out that having a baby is pretty time consuming…who knew? Well, my sweet little peanut is almost ten months old and I’m finally starting to feel like my brain is coming out of retirement. I’m not sure if it’s the lack of sleep, or the whole life change of being responsible for someone else’s life, or just that I constantly smell so bad that I was too embarrassed to put myself out there, but whatever the case, I’m doing it, I’m back to business.
For the past several months I’ve actually slowly been breaking out of the lockdown that is new motherhood and writing for this live sketch show, the CBS diversity showcase. It’s been amazing and terrible all at once. Amazing because the people involved are some old friends and many new as well, but all really wonderful people to work with. Also they let me bring my baby when I can’t find a sitter, which is tricky, but great. Tali, my baby girl, is sort of the mascot of the CBS showcase…I know when I think DIVERSITY on television, I think of a beautiful blond haired, blue-eyed baby.
Anyway, this process, while gratifying, has also been tough because after being in my baby bubble for so long I have definitely gotten rusty. And with all the joys of new motherhood also comes a swell of out of control hormones that can send even the strongest lady into an emotional sinkhole. Combine that with important people telling you the sketch you brought in is a piece of crap and you get a lot of tears and eating of chocolate, but you also get to be a better writer. So there’s that. Okay, I don’t want to blow my wad on this first entry back in a year, so instead I’ll try to continue on this path of getting back to writing, acting, producing, while being an amazing mother to the cutest, greatest baby that ever walked (any day now) the planet.
