Tia Explains Her Meltdown: "Super Moms Are Still Human"
The business that I'm in is unpredictable and extremely spontaneous. I am not that type of person. I am the type of person who likes things to be orderly. I like to know what I am doing. I had just gotten back from Atlanta and I was just settling in. Then, all of a sudden, I had to go to Utah to film Mistle-Tones. If I was me by myself, that would be OK, but when you have a baby, you have to think about your child. Cree had finally gotten adjusted to the time zone in Atlanta—he had spent more time in the nursery in Atlanta than he had in his own home! Just having to put my mind around doing that again to him kind of freaked me out.
I had to hurry up and get things done for Utah in a timely fashion, which was overwhelming. The thing about moms is that we are always trying to be super moms, but the reality of the situation is that we are human. We are going to break down. That's what happened to me. I was trying to be this perfect mom and perfect wife, but sometimes you are just tired. There is not enough time in the day. At the same time, I was so excited about going to Utah.
I re-center myself by reminding myself that I'm not the only mom going through what I'm going through. That gives me strength. I also think about my son. He gives me strength. I always say, I used to be a shy cub, but now I am a Lion. That is definitely something that children do to their moms. At the end of the day, I am doing everything for my son.
I also have the best husband in the world. Cory is the most supportive man and he's my best friend. He is sends me texts that say, "I am proud of you" and "Keep on doing your thing." Just getting those give me a big boost.
Tamera and I have been acting since we were 12-years-old. I am married to an actor and we are all about parts and making money. Tamera is not married to an actor. There are two different worlds that she is diving in and out of: show business and the winery. She always has to make choices. I'm curious to see how she'll balance the two.
