Rodger explains why he let Jeremiah go and why Rachel's schedule made him so nervous.

on Oct 11, 2011

I was hoping after the Oscars ended Rachel would really slow down until the baby came, but of course, two huge shoots came up that she couldn't turn down. It concerned me that by being on her feet all day she was over doing it and needed to be home with her feet up and resting -- but I think that was partially due to my first-time father jitters. All I care about is Rachel's well-being and our baby arriving healthy and happy. It is crazy to think about us being fully responsible for a person that needs us and looks to us for everything. . .and I really hope I will do a good job.

On top of my family worries, I had also been struggling to figure out where Jeremiah really fits within the company. While I think that he is a great guy and very talented interior designer, unfortunately with so much uncertainty about how things would be when the baby arrived, I made the tough decision that there wasn't a place for him with us right now.  But you never know what the future holds. . .
