Montgomery: Time management! I work incredibly long hours on Unforgettable, so I'm frequently up in the wee hours of the morning and don't get home until well after Jackson's bedtime. It's hard not to be able to spend the day playing with him or feed him breakfast. I relish the time we do get together and try to make it extra special.
Montgomery: If anything, people are more understanding! I have found everyone to be wonderful about motherhood and extremely supportive in this industry. That support was evident during my pregnancy and when I had a young infant, and continues now. When I needed to take a break to nurse on the set of Without a Trace or at a photo shoot, I never had a problem.
Montgomery: I try to be as hands-on as possible, but I'll admit -- I have help! I come from a large family and everyone was always pitching in. Adam (Jackson's father), my cousin David and my assistant Ashley all help me to juggle the demands of working and being a mom. I'm lucky to be able to ask someone to help me pick up groceries or drop off the dry cleaning so that I can spend that extra hour reading with Jackson or taking him to the park.
Montgomery: Are you kidding me? My memory is crap. I am the person who runs around the house looking for her sunglasses and then realizes they're perched on top of my head!
Montgomery: Sleep! No joke. When you and your kids are well rested, everything seems to run better.
