“I have two boys, one is almost five and the other is almost three. They’re wonderful. Their innocence is very charming. It’s an interesting experience to watch how kids interact and play, because they just know what’s around them. They don’t have any preconceived notions or judgments. For example, my five year old likes to say, ‘there’s no such thing as girls toys and boys toys. Everyone can play with anything; it doesn’t matter.’ They don’t see gender or colour or anything like that—they just see people for people; what they have inside.
There’s nothing like coming home from a day at work and seeing my kids and knowing that I created these two little humans who run to the door and love you and want to spend time with you. It’s also rewarding coming home every day knowing that I have a job that requires a lot of brain power, and I like to see my achievements in my job. There’s nothing like getting to go home and be a mother and at the same time, getting to have a very important, prestigious job.”
