"I want to be a hands on mom with milo"

Liv Tyler wants to be as hands-on as possible with son Milo — which means the usual disruptions.
“Milo (who calls her his princess) wakes up every morning at 5.30 or 6 — ping! — and so the hardest thing is the lack of sleep. I try and go to bed before 10 or 11pm, but it’s so hard. If I don’t get more than six hours of sleep for a few days in a row I start to really lose it and just feel so panicked and stressed.
"When people ask me, ‘What is the first thing you do in the morning? What’s your routine?’ I say, ‘Er, I get up. I make breakfast,’” she laughs breathily. “‘I beg Milo to try and snooze for 30 more minutes!’ Of course when they’re up, they’re up.”
She has added pressures in the motherhood arena; for her, the yummy-mummy contest at the school gate is on an altogether grander scale.
“The hardest thing is taking him to school, as sometimes I’ll literally just throw my coat on over my nightgown, but the paparazzi wait almost every day outside his school.
It’s so hard because I don’t want to think about what I’m wearing when I’m taking him to school. I want to get him to school safely, then do whatever I have to do.
”I love being a mother and a normal mother as much as I can, doing basic things. And I love my job and being spontaneous in life, and if you’re trotting around in heels the whole time, you can’t really do that.
