“You’re in a constant state of worrying about your children. It’s very painful and it’s exhilarating. It’s a really interesting way of living in the world. I read books differently, or I look at parents and children on the subway differently. I hear music differently or when I see something, I think, ‘I wish Tabitha and Loretta were with me now and they could see this.’ That’s the good part. It’s not for everybody—there’s a lot that’s really hard. It’s exhausting and you’re basically just cleaning up after people all day. You’re one big, good, old-fashioned secretary. All I do is organize peoples’ lives and get them here and there and all that. It’s what I wanted and with that, though, comes witnessing somebody hopefully develop into a really interesting, decent person who contributes something.”

-Sarah Jessica Parker, actress and mother to James, 15, and twins Tabitha and Marion Loretta, 8, to Girlboss Radio, 2018.
