"Oh, Jennifer: Just the words I needed to hear today. Your mother was a very wise woman indeed." Anne McColl
In the interview, Debbie suggests to not worry about being so "perfect"...she says, "enjoy and spend as much time as possible with your children when they are young because the time goes so very fast. Once the kids are grown you'll have a lot of time to arrange photo picture albums or clean your home to perfection; now's the time to enjoy your kids!"
