As a busy mom juggling two children — daughter Ruby Sweetheart, 3 tomorrow, and Otis Tobias, 6 months — and her successful jewelry line,Jennifer Meyer Maguire often finds herself fantasizing about one little luxury: sleep.

However, her lack of shut-eye — or anything else! — pales in comparison to time spent with her family, including her husband, actor Tobey Maguire. “[I love to be] with my family, pretty much whenever we are all together, I’m in heaven,” she tells Pint Size Social.

Finding the balance between her career and her family hasn’t been a challenge for Jennifer, who insists the latter always come first in life. “My family is first, second, and third on my life,” she explains. “There is nothing as important to me as being a mom, wife, daughter, sister…And when all of that is strong and in place, I feel like my career runs smoothly.”

Her dedication to ensuring her kids grow up in a family-oriented environment is one which Jennifer hopes Ruby and Otis will forever appreciate. “[I want them to remember] that they had a wonderful, carefree, happy childhood filled with love and security,” she shares.

And when the busy mama does catch a moment to herself, she loves nothing more than to simply relax! “Alone, I love a long hot shower or doing yoga with Mandy Ingber,” she reveals.
