Alison Sweeney: My Kids Come First

Actress Alison Sweeney and her adorable kids Ben, 4, and Megan, 1, are captured in the midst of a sweet moment on the cover of the May issue of Working Mother magazine. A longtime favorite on Days of our Lives and host of the ever-popular reality weight loss show The Biggest Loser, Alison chats about a few of the ups and downs of being a working mom-of-two.

On balancing career and children: “It’s hard to strike that 50-50 mark each day, but if I look at a whole week or month, I feel that overall I get to spend a lot of time with my children. And when I’m with them, I give them my full attention. When I go to work, I give work my full attention and commitment. Everyone has doubts occasionally, but it’s important to know you’re doing the best you can. And if you regret a decision, make a different choice next time.”

On handling the demands of both: “That’s a tough one, but there’s no question that my kids come first. Every time there’s a call from Ben’s preschool, I worry that it’s an emergency. Even when I get normal calls from the preschool, there’s that instant that I wonder why they’re calling and if everything’s okay. There was one time that my husband and I were on our way to a charity event when the school called and said that Ben got a nasty scrape on his forehead. We turned the car around and met our son and his babysitter in the emergency room. I had that sick feeling in my stomach until I was there with him, holding his hand, making him laugh. Ben, on the other hand, was completely calm, asking questions about all the equipment, how the bed moves.”
