In an interview with US Magazine Michelle Williams opens up about being a single parent to Matilda Ledger. Michelle has been a single parent since the tragic death of Heath Ledger in 2008. She has been open about the fact that she was up for the challenge of raising her daughter alone but she also has shed
some light on how working mothers really feel about juggling it all.
Michelle, 34, said…”I feel like I’m so good at raising a kid when I’m not working,” of raising her 9-year-old daughter. “I don’t forget anything. I’ve got everything covered. It’s a real luxury to have a moment when I’m not scrambling.”
“I feel like most of my life, I’m trying to do two things at once, both to the best of my abilities,” continued Williams, who took the stage in the Broadway revival of Cabaret last year. “So that leaves me feeling pretty exhausted. I’m the person who falls asleep all the time. You invite me over for dinner or to a party, and there’s a whole scrapbook of pictures of me napping. I’ve even been given a nickname because of my snoring.”
Does this sound like you? It pretty much sums me up in a nutshell…trying to make sure I am ‘present’ in each task I do is like navigating through a mine field while working with young kids. I sure wouldn’t change a thing but it makes me love and adore every woman out there who is trying to juggle their family and their career at the same time…especially when they’re single parents. You are super women!
