Jessa Duggar Gets Mommy-Shamed, For The Dumbest Thing
Ugh, I haaaaaaaate when people make me defend a Duggar! Jessa Duggar Seewald is being mommy-shamed for a picture she posted on Instagram. Well, not for the picture itself (it’s not like she set her baby down on a dirty floor or anything). Rather, people are coming for her because of the story she told in the caption of the photo. I swear, some people have too much time on their hands.
Jessa Duggar Seewald and her husband Ben have two boys: Spurgeon, 2, and Henry, 11 months.
Such cuties! Anyway, she has a 2-year-old and an almost 1-year-old. In other words, she has two small beings who probably CONSTANTLY keep her on her toes. And require a lot of work! Small humans are especially good at doing the most damage in the shortest amount of time. Haven’t you ever turned your head for just a second, only to turn around and find that your toddler has somehow destroyed an entire room in that time? Toddlers, they’re so fun and infuriating.
In the photo Jessa posted that brought out the judgey moms, she tells a little story about Spurgeon being adorably destructive.
“Out shopping for groceries – AND – a new phone for Dad, since the 2-year-old did an experiment of sink or swim… in the toilet. It did not swim. ‘Mommy, fix it!’ ‘Umm…did you spill water?’ Ben: There’s water on the rim of the toilet. Screen was black. Phone was boiling hot and completely fried.
Ha! Parents can attest, sometimes you gotta laugh so you don’t cry. ? Can’t stay mad for more than a sec tho… he’s such a cute little stinker! ????”
Stop the presses! A 2-year-old threw a phone in the toilet! Call CPS!
Most of the comments were other parents who could commiserate with having a Houdini toddler. Seriously, one minute they’re eating a snack in front of the TV, and the next, they’re playing water war in the bathroom … nude. But of course, there’s always THAT ONE PERSON.
“Not judging but pointing out a fact”. Thanks for that, lady.
Should toddlers be allowed to play in the toilet? Well … no. Obviously not. Is there a way to watch multiple sneaky children every minute of every hour of every day? Listen, if there is, someone please share the secret. Because my almost-4-year-old just took off all her clothes and put on a princess dress in the time it took to type this sentence.
Don’t worry, people also criticized Jessa for the baby having a missing sock in another picture. Can’t win for trying, sometimes!
