Resent Your Spouse for ‘Getting’ to Go to Work? This Mom Gets It

Creating and curating relevant and relatable news, events and resources for the working mom. Here’s the latest from the PowerMom team…

Ali Fedotowsky-Manno confessed in a blog post yesterday that, at times, she feels resentful of her husband. The former “Bachelorette” star was honest about how challenging it has been to adjust to being a mom of two. It doesn’t help that she sees her husband, radio personality Kevin Manno, leave for work every day while she’s left at home trying to work and care for her 9-week-old son, Riley, and 2-year-old daughter, Molly.

“Honestly, I find myself feeling angry at Kevin sometimes because he GETS to go to work every day and get a break. I remember going to work after we had Molly and feeling like it was a vacation and not even work,” the mom wrote. “And my ‘mom job’ at home is 10 times harder now that we have two kids, so I bet going to work will feel like a spa day once I go back (when I’m emotionally ready to leave Riley).”

She added on Instagram that she needs an emotional and physical break, because wearing Riley in a baby carrier 90 percent of the time is not doing wonders for her back.

This week has been challenging for Fedotowsky-Manno, who was “on a total high ” last week, “surrounded by love and positive vibes in every aspect of my life.” This week, though, the mom said the struggle was so real she stayed in her pajamas all day for most of the week and showered once.
