1st AD, Mother of Three

Me, sitting across from an exec producer interviewing me for the position of 1st AD on a popular American Network TV show.
Producer: So you’re a mother I understand?
Me: Yes, of three.
Producer: (leaning forward on his desk) Now… I don’t believe you can be good at both. So what are you going to choose? Being a mother or being a 1st AD?

Me, sitting in a shuttle as a Teamster drives me to set for crew call.
Teamster: So I hear you have a baby?
Me: Yeah… he’s six months and I also have a two-year old.
Teamster: Oh, so you’re working hard so you can pay for all
the therapy of being neglected by their mother when they’re older?
