Amanda Kloots takes pride in being a loving mother, but it could be tasking carrying out her motherly responsibilities while handling work.
She recently admitted so in a detailed Instagram message conveying the reality of balancing work and life as a mom and expressing appreciation to those who helped reduce the challenging burden.
Amanda Kloots Says Work/Life Balance As An Employed Mother Is Hard
Bidding her son goodbye keeps getting “harder and harder” on the famed dancer, and as she penned, they had a recent emotional farewell, clinging onto one another, already missing themselves. She wrote:
“We were both in tears today, holding each other tight, doing our handshakes, hugging, and kissing over and over. This is new…these types of goodbyes. He understands now when I have to leave him.”
Kloots continued, “The work/life balance as a working mother is so hard. I love work, and I love my son. It’s an emotional rollercoaster that I don’t think you can fully understand until you do.” She expressed how blessed she felt to have “a village of incredible people” who assisted her every day while also admitting that she could not do anything without them.
The 40-year-old further wrote that those she was “eternally grateful” to knew themselves and concluded, “We did see whales! No Orcas [crying emoji] but humpbacks! [whale emoji]” Her candid post featured a sweet photo of herself with her baby boy on a beach, pecking each other while her arms were under his arm, almost like she was about to carry him.
She was dressed casually in a two-piece set comprising a long flowing white skirt with a matching cropped top. On the other hand, her son wore a beige shirt and white shorts. Many could relate to Kloots’ beautiful post as they took to the comments to narrate their experiences working and raising kids single-handedly while also confirming how tasking the balance could be.

Among the commenters was TV star Ant Anstead who agreed with her about the work/life balance, saying he heard her and it was undoubtedly tough. She then replied, “I know you know.”
The beautiful onscreen personality cherishes every moment she spends with her son and chronicles their time together on social media as often as possible. Back in May, The Blast noted that she shared a lovely image of herself carrying the little one on a shoreline with a magnificent view of the blue and white sky connecting with the waves in the backdrop.
Kloots could be seen kissing her baby boy in the snap while he held onto her with his little arms around his mama’s neck. They were both dressed in simple attires, with the doting mother donning a two-piece star-designed denim piece from Pistola while her son wore a white singlet and plaid dungarees from Wild Wawa.
“Love is all you need,” Kloots captioned the post, leading fans to gush about the mother and son’s bond, calling it the most special, with some commending her for being a great mama. Raising her only child without her deceased partner Nick Cordero is no easy deed, and she once said she wished he was alive to see their boy develop over the years.

“The Talk” Co-Host Tributes Late Husband With Emotional Message On Second Death Anniversary
Last month marked the second anniversary of Kloots’ late husband’s death, and the devoted wife honored him with a heartfelt tribute, keeping his memory alive. As The Blast reported, she took to Instagram to memorialize the deceased, using a mashup video of the couple’s loveliest moments throughout their time together.
She then began the post’s caption by explaining to viewers that bidding her husband goodbye was the most challenging day of her life. The social media personality further sang praises for Cordero for being “a presence” whose smile and laughter could cheer up a room.
Her message continued with a story about a dream she recalled one of her friends had on the first anniversary of her spouse’s demise. The dream implied that the Broadway actor’s death anniversary was a rebirth, prompting Kloots to name the day, July 5th, as his new “birth day” rather than his death day.
