A moment of honesty. We start filming season 4 of Lucifer on Netflix this coming Monday. It’s been wonderful seeing our crew and of course the writers room and my beloved cast mates but I must confess, I’m experiencing, at this very moment so much anxiety around returning to work. See, this time last year, my little King was a new born, unaware at 6 weeks old that mama was at work while he slept in my trailer until his next feeding. But he is now one. And as a year old, so very aware when I leave and when I come home. Soaking in every single hello and goodbye and experience and I’m afraid to miss any of it. I honestly feel like I’m never doing enough but especially when I return to work. Don’t get me wrong, I love acting and I believe I’m a better mother for it. I guess I’m just sitting in gratitude for the time we spend together and hoping he will understand this time round, when I have to leave. I lift up and praise all the working and stay at home mothers. The mom guilt is real. I love you Kingston. #myking #kingstonpayne
