As a single mom to her two daughters Sam, 6, and Lola, 5, actress Denise Richards admits that it can be hard to strike the right balance. The Mother’s Little Helpers star talks to Mom magazine about life with her girls, and reveals her number one rule when it comes to dating.
On motherhood: “I’m definitely a hands-on mom. For me it’s about priorities, and my girls always come first. I look at it as having a harmonious house more than balancing – it’s never quite balanced!”
On her favorite time with the kids: “Dinnertime. We have dinner every night at the same time – a homemade meal – and we just talk. My girls are always saying funny things; they pick up a lot when I think they aren’t listening. The other day Lola said I looked ‘spectacular,’ which I though was funny for a 4 year old.”
On dating as a single mom: “I have a rule – I won’t introduce my girls to anyone I’m dating unless it’s very serious.”
