Keri Russell talks about wanting to 'do everything' for River

Keriandriver Although she recently admitted to utilizing a babysitter for the first time, Keri Russell isn’t necessarily enthusiastic about the prospect.  The mom to 4-month-old River said she had husband Shane Deary come home early to care for the baby recently in order to meet with an interviewer, instead of bringing in outside help. 

I don’t have an aversion to nannies or baby-sitters, but in these early months there’s a control aspect to a baby—you want to do everything.

That ‘control aspect’ carries over to her professional choices as well.  When asked about whether she’d shoot a film right now, the Waitress actress, 31, said that,

with River so little and Shane working on our new house, the offer would have to be terrific, perfect.

Well done to Kerri, I don’t think parents see how much they miss out if they have a nanny or daycare full time, even if the parent is a stay at home mom…
