She describes herself as a "work in progress"—both as a grownup and a mother—and then talks to the reader in a very down-to-earth voice about her efforts to make her home and everyday life as "normal" as can be for her husband and children, considering that she lives in the land where motherhood exists against a backdrop of red carpets, premieres, and basically living "on the set" of a reality show. A world where her son leafs through celebrity magazines, identifying himself and his parents in the photos.
You can't help but applaud her efforts. She certainly has had her insecurities and fears, mostly due to her "over the top" childhood and her flawed relationship with her own mother. But she is determined to create a different relationship with her own children, and believes that, with the help of the family she has created—with friends as the core of this group—she can achieve her goals.
A promising indicator that she might just succeed lies in her acceptance that she must be present in her life and that she only has to take it a step at a time. It won't happen overnight.
This seems like a very mature approach for someone living in "La-la Land." I'm voting for her!
