Scheduling is everything for Michelle Pfeiffer. The Hairspraystar, 49, can’t stand to be away from her children, Claudia Rose, 14,and John Henry, 12, for more than two weeks at a time and always tries to shapeher work itinerary around them.
When I look at doing something and have to be away from the kids,if it’s at a time when they can’t come with me, like during the schoolyear, then I need to be able to come back and forth. I need to not beaway from my kids more than a week or two – that’s my limit.
I think it’s helped us as a family to be less distracted. Wewanted more land, and we wanted animals. We were looking for adifferent kind of lifestyle.
I think if you can raise kids to embody those two qualities, then they will have a rich and successful life.
