She continued: "You thought you were doing OK, but you're rushing around and you're working and they're going to school and we're all on our devices."

"They need us in a different way. We have to slow down and we have to connect more. And, you know, I don't want to miss things. And I realised, 'god, I would have missed that if I wasn't here today,'" she added.
