PS: I wanted to ask you your opinion on social media, as a mother and as someone who uses it yourself. I feel like we're getting to a point where it's getting a little crazy. Do you have thoughts on how you're going to monitor it as your son grows up?
KR: My goal as a mother is to keep the lines of communication wide open. I don't want my son to feel like he has to hide anything from me. I don't care what it is, even if I've had a really bad day, I want him to hear I had a bad day. I'm not trying to sugarcoat anything. "This person pissed me off." "Why Mum?" "Because this, and this, and this, and when they did this, I said this . . . " I want him to see everything. I think that there are so many different scales of emotions; life is real. Great moments and disappointment are real, and I want him to see all of that and to keep the lines of communication open, so that he comes home and he's like, "Such-and-such said this to me."
I remember somebody said, "Would you let your son curse?" Only at me. My husband said, "I'd be way more pissed off if he got in trouble for calling someone stupid, because then you're actually starting to screw up somebody else's life." And he was so right, he was like, "I'd rather him curse, say a curse word, than call somebody stupid." I was like, "You know what, I agree. Let's get married." And that's what happened [laughs].
