Khloé Kardashian, the renowned reality TV star and founder of Good American, recently shared a candid look into her life as a hands-on mother to her two children, True and Tatum, whom she shares with her ex-partner Tristan Thompson.

On a recent episode of “The Kardashians,” Khloé opened up about the challenges she faces while raising her kids without a live-in nanny and how co-parenting with Tristan has impacted her routine.

In a heartfelt conversation with her sister, Kourtney Kardashian Barker, Khloé revealed the difficulties she encounters while balancing her responsibilities.

Kourtney asked Khloé why she chose not to accompany the family to Paris, to which Khloé explained her anxiety about leaving her children behind. “I just didn’t feel like it was the place for me. I was just getting anxious leaving the kids.

Tristan’s gone and it’s hard for me to leave them,” she said. Khloé expressed concerns about potential emergencies, such as an earthquake, happening while she was away, leaving her children without a parent present.

Khloé shares that her ex, Tristan, has been a significant help when he is around. However, with him being away in Cleveland, Ohio, she has been managing everything on her own.

Despite the immense workload, she remains deeply involved in her children’s lives, from making their lunches and dinners to ensuring they have everything they need.

“I’m just so hands-on. It’s like cool half the time, but I make all of her lunches, I make her dinners, I do everything,” she explained.

Khloé admits that while she loves her routine and spending time with her kids, the exhaustion is real. “Every day after 8:30, when True’s asleep, I am, like, crawling,” Khloé joked in a confessional.

She likened her end-of-day exhaustion to Leonardo DiCaprio’s iconic scene in “The Wolf of Wall Street.” Despite the fatigue, Khloé finds joy in the little things, such as making heart-shaped watermelon slices for her kids’ lunches.

“Once you start the cute s— that you’re so excited to do, God forbid, you don’t,” she added.

However, the exhaustion doesn’t diminish her love and dedication to her children. Khloé admitted that even after a long day, once the kids are asleep, she often finds herself missing them.

“It’s amazing. Like at the same time, it’s like all you want. It’s the weirdest thing. Because you’re exhausted and you’re like I’m gonna die and then literally when they’re asleep by 10, I’m like I miss them. Like get it together Khloé, snap out of it.”

Despite their separation, Khloé and Tristan have maintained a positive co-parenting relationship. On May 13, Khloé took her children to see Tristan play in a Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Boston Celtics game in Cleveland. This was a special moment for their daughter True, who was eager to see her father play.

A source told PEOPLE, “This was True’s first time seeing her father play. She’s been asking, so Khloé wanted to make this special for her. Tatum is still young, but it will be fun to see what he thinks of his dad playing.”

In a TikTok video posted to NBC Sports Boston‘s account, Khloé is seen bringing her kids over to their dad. True, wearing a pink shirt and sporting two buns, excitedly walked over to Tristan, who had Tatum on his lap.

Tristan stood up to hug Khloé, carrying Tatum as they embraced. True proudly showed off her VIP pass to Tristan, beaming with joy as she propped herself next to her dad.

The source added, “Tristan and Khloé have been really great at co-parenting and Khloé always wants to make sure she helps in ensuring the kids spend as much time with their father as they can.”

This commitment to co-parenting highlights Khloé’s dedication to providing a stable and loving environment for her children, despite the complexities of their situation.

Khloé Kardashian’s candid revelations about her life as a single, hands-on mom offer a glimpse into the challenges and joys of parenting. Her commitment to her children and her efforts to maintain a positive co-parenting relationship with Tristan Thompson demonstrate her dedication to her family’s well-being.

While the exhaustion and anxiety are real, Khloé’s love for her children and her desire to create a nurturing environment remain unwavering. As she continues to navigate the complexities of parenthood, Khloé serves as a testament to the resilience and strength of a devoted mother.
