Amanda shared this sweet post with her mom-in-law
The toddler is now sleeping through the night, and Amanda recently shared a moving account of how she had been battling with the pressures of being a single working mother.
Despite having a "manny and a nanny and amazing friends who will literally help me at any moment of the day", Amanda became visibly emotional as she recounted the "mom guilt" she felt trying to "manage" her mornings with Elvis, two.

Sharing a clip of the discussion on Instagram, Amanda captioned it in part: "I have to admit that yesterday I had a day where I just broke down.
"The mom guilt set in as I tried to manage my morning with Elvis. I was in tears before I even got to work.
"We can make mom life look glorious on Instagram (and there are many times it is) but what you don’t see, especially as a single mom, are the hardest times where we just wish there was someone there to pat us on the back."
