But it's mostly good to be back and the breaks energize me to be a better mom and appreciate our time even more," she added. "I have it a lot easier than many people but I wanted to share my experience. what was your going back to work experience?"
The post prompted fellow celebrities to respond to her question. One of the commenters was Drew Barrymore, who wrote, "I didn't care about anything. Everything seemed trivial if it wasn't about my kids. But after time, things fall into the new place. Not the old. Old is gone. Forever changed by a love that is indescribable!"
Meanwhile, Debra Messing recalled the time when she returned to star on "Will & Grace" after giving birth to her son. "Omg, my body hurt from his absence," said the actress. "I felt a physical yearning, and I questioned myself, and felt guilty, and would cry. It was hard. I'd feel such moments of joy making people laugh. I'd get lost in the work and it energized me and empowered me. And then I'd get home and literally sprint to his crib and rock him, feeling like I was HOME. It's hard, being a working mom. But I believe that we are better mom's when we are able to do what fulfills us. One hour at a time, Amy."
As for Jenna Bush Hager, she noted that "this is so important to say." Feeling grateful to the positive response, Amy wrote back in the comment section, "These comments are so good to read. Thank you."
