Elizabeth Banks Isn’t Letting ‘Baby Brain’ Stop Her
Its personal choice whether to go back to work or stay home after having a little one. Elizabeth Banks is learning that its not an easyÂ decision to make. The new mom admitted that she’s having a hard time balancing her family and her job, but that doesn’t meanÂ she isÂ shutting down.
We have all been there, a couple months after your little one is born, when your head in torn in a million different directions and you’re simply trying to make it to nap time, then dinner, then bedtime, then the weekend. It’s a blur that three years later, I still don’t fully recall.
And Banks is right, you never know just how much you can do until youÂ throw motherhood in to the mix. The actress says,
â€œThe thing about motherhood is itâ€™s a full-time job and everything else gets piled onto it. I donâ€™t think I ever really understood that until it came into my life. You put so much of your brain energy, and your emotional and psychological energy into, â€˜Where is he? What is he doing?â€™ that itâ€™s almost hard to concentrate on anything else.â€
While we all can relate to this stressful feeling, I’m happy to see the actress work through it. She has a new movie coming out and two more on the way. She’s demonstrates that a woman can continue working and still be concerned about her family. Overall, I feel like she’s giving a realistic picture of the struggle to keep working, even when your home-life gets hectic. And I appreciate her admitting that its not always easy.
Good luck Elizabeth!Â And I’m sure you’re tiring of hearing this, but don’t worry, you’ll get some sleep soon!
