But from the beginning, Psaki says her deal with the Biden administration “inner circle” was to serve for a year. “I think it’s going to be time for somebody else to have this job, in a year from now or about a year from now,” she said. Personally, she is excited to spend more time with her family.

“I have little kids and I want to spend time with them,” Psaki said, speaking of her two children, ages 3 and 5. “I don’t want to miss moments and I’m very mindful of that.”

“It’s a decision you make as a family,” Psaki said, talking about what it was like to be offered a high-paced job. She talked about how any and all times of day become her “quality time” with her children.
