The 38-year-old Olympic gold medalist, Dancing with the Stars champion and mom told Working Mother Magazine, “I still have an itch.” What she means is that she likes having a career. She admits, “I never thought I’d still be working this hard in my thirties.” She adds, “Sometimes I think I overextend myself because I’m traveling too much and am away from the kids. It’s a fine line to find that balance. These days I make business decisions based on whether something is worth my time away from my kids.”
Kristi explained that motherhood changed her. “My priorities have changed drastically and I’m lucky I was ready for that. I’d toured with Stars on Ice for ten years; I was ready to … unpack my suitcase and not pack it for a very long time.”
She tries to give her girls a normal life, given the circumstances. “We’re trying to be a normal family. We have dinner together as much as possible.”
It sounds like Kristi has her life together. What a great mom!
