Audrey Roloff Explains Why Her “Mom Guilt” Almost Ruined Christmas

Audrey Roloff still has a lot to learn as a new mother.

Heck, every single woman on the planet who recently gave birth has a lot to learn as a new mother.

This whole parenting thing is not easy.

The Little People, Big World star is well aware of this fact, of course, having opened up last fall about the challenges she faced early on breastfeeding.

Roloff even admitted to showing signs of postpartum depression.

But the reality star and husband Jeremy have seemingly come a long way over the past couple months, sharing endless photos of daughter Ember Jean and gushing over her on Instagram.

In her latest blog, however, Audrey opens up yet again about a parenting obstacle.

And how it nearly ruined her very first Christmas with Ember.

“I started the morning off with a champion mom moment,” Audrey writes sarcastically, elaborating as follows:

“I cut Ember’s nail to short and it bleed for a solid hour… I laid in bed with her all morning, refusing to get up and make us Christmas brunch, and wallowing in mom guilt.

“Ember cried for all of 10 seconds, but of course it left my eyes watery and my heart throbbing for the next few hours.

“Lord, why did you have to make babies nails grow so fast?!”

LOL. That’s sort of funny.

And something to which millions of parents can relate.

But it was clearly no laughing matter for Roloff at the time.

“It wasn’t how I wanted Christmas morning to start off,” she continues, explaining:

“I wanted it to be a perfect, cuddly, picturesque, breakfast-in-bed kinda morning. But it wasn’t.

“Does anyone else set too strict or too high of expectations for holidays, birthdays and anniversaries?! I can’t be the only one… but I am learning to let go of this, and not let one wrong turn have such a rock skipping effect.

“Come on Auj, buck up and move on.

“Maybe I’m just a wee more emotional because it was her first Christmas and maybe mom guilt really does make you a little crazy.”

It’s true, right?

But here’s the thing: mom guilt will never really go away.

Right now, it comes out when you cut your loved one’s nails too closely.

In a few years, it will come out when you forget to pack her lunch for first grade or something.

This is just part of being a parent and it’s something all mothers and fathers must deal with. It’s important to remember, however, that such small mistakes really have no impact on one’s son or daughter.

Just provide a loving home and a healthy environment for your children to live in… and do your best on a daily basis with everything else.

That’s all one can realistically ask of oneself.

Thankfully, it’s pretty clear Audrey got over her mistake and the family had an epic time on December 25.

“Ember’s first Christmas brought out the child in us both again,” she concluded on her blog, writing:

“I cannot wait to celebrate the holidays with Ember and our future children in the years to come, it makes everything so much more fun!”

Whoa! Future children?!?

Forget those Jacob Roloff baby rumors. Is Audrey pregnant again?

We can’t imagine so. She just gave birth four months ago!

But will she do so again and is she excited about the possibility? Yes.

And that’s great to hear. We’re glad excessive nail cutting didn’t crush Audrey’s dream of adding to her family someday.

Kanye West is Almost Smiling in This Family Photo!

Kim Kardashian has shared a new picture on her Instagram and Facebook pages, and it’s worth noting for two reasons:

1. It features Kim, her husband and both of their kids, something we do not see very often.

2. Kanye West is smiling in the snapshot. Or at least smirking! For real!

See for yourself:

Amazing, right?

Kim shared the photo along with a very simple caption that read “Happy Holidays.”

It’s nothing too special or newsworthy, but this is Kim Kardashian and this is social media, so the photo has been Liked over 72,000 times in just a few hours on Facebook.

Kardashian and West have actually lived a mostly quiet life in 2017.

They concluded last year on quite the low note, of course, with Kim getting robbed at gunpoint in Paris and then Kanye suffering a nervous breakdown mere weeks later.

These traumatic events left both stars shaken.

For a few months afterward, divorce rumors plagued Kimye, as multiple outlets and tabloids wrote that these incidents were simply too much for the couple to handle.

Word spread that the pair were drifting apart.

There was even a rumor just this month that Kardashian was ready to file for divorce.

We aren’t buying it, however. Why would we?!?

First of all, Kanye just gifted his wife with over $ 500,000 in stocks, which does not seem like the actions one would take if one were about to get a divorce.

Second, Kanye actually struck some poses for the family Christmas card, as you can see above.

He didn’t make the cut for the final version, which left us a little confused and concerned, but still. There’s one final, very strong reason to believe this romance is doing just fine.

And that reason is this:

Kim and Kanye will soon welcome child number-three!

As has now been confirmed by Kardashian herself, a surrogate is pregnant with the baby because doctors deemed it too dangerous for Kim to give birth for a third time.

She actually may be due any day now.

Would Kardashian and West really make this plan if there was any doubt about their romance?

If they believed for one second that they weren’t staying together?

We think everyone knows the answers to these questions.

Over the next couple months, meanwhile, Kim and Kanye will welcome their child… Khloe Kardashian will give birth… AND Kylie Jenner will give birth.

So while 2017 was actually pretty tame as far as this famous family goes, it’s already pretty clear that they’ll be back to making headlines of every kind in 2018.

Buckle up.

Jamie Lynn Spears Reflects on Almost Losing Daughter in Tragic Accident

It was been 10 months since Jamie Lynn Spears’ daughter was injured in an ATV accident. Since then, Maddie has made an impressive recovery.

Now, Jamie Lynn is celebrating milestones in her life on social media, and reflecting on Maddie’s recovery and Maddie herself.

This is so heartwarming..

Maddie Aldridge’s tragic ATV accident could have cost the girl her life.

Maddie was driving an ATV — sometimes, that’s what you do when you’re part of a wealthy celebrity family and your aunt is some sort of deity-made-flesh — when it flipped upside-down in the water.

They were initially unable to free Maddie, resulting in her being trapped underwater for a couple of minutes, constrained by her seatbelt and by the protective netting on the vehicle.

It was an absolute nightmare for Maddie and for her parents.

Britney Spears asked for prayers from fans for her niece’s recovery. Initially, things looked grim.

As we all know, prolonged oxygen deprivation can have fatal results. And, even if Maddie survived, there was a chance that she’d lose things — motor skills, speech, memories — because of brain damage.

We are all so thankful that she made a full recovery. Maddie even returned to school less than two weeks later.

Still, it was a frightening time, and one that Maddie — and her family — will never forget.

Jamie Lynn Spears has been celebrating the 12 Days of Jamie Lynn Spears, reflecting upon her life’s major milestones.

She posted this photo (above) with the caption:

“The hardest milestone me and my family have ever faced was almost losing our beautiful Maddie.”

Obviously. It’s heartbreaking just to think about.

“But thanks to God and the two angels in this picture we were able to celebrate Maddie turning 9 years old all together.”

During the two days that it took Maddie to wake up, her parents and other loved ones must have been wondering if Maddie’s 8th birthday would be her last.

“This milestone became a true miracle, and we are forever grateful for that.”

Jamie Lynn Spears also reflected on Maddie’s greater impact in her life.

“Some milestones we never see coming, but I’m so blessed that I­t­ did. Maddie is the biggest blessing in my life so far #12DaysofJLS”

That’s a very cute way of reminding the world that you got pregnant as a minor.

In fact, Maddie was still starring on Nickelodeon’s Zoey 101 at the time when she became pregnant.

We should also point out that she calls Maddie “the biggest blessing in my life so far.

You can just call her your biggest blessing and lat it be understood that she’d be tied with any other children you might have down the line.

(Remember, Jamie Lynn Spears is only 26)

But Jamie Lynn gets points for accuracy.

Don’t worry, folks — not all of Jamie Lynn’s milestones are as dramatic as teen pregnancy or as heartbreaking as her daughter’s brush with death.

She’s also given a shoutout to her engagement, followed by her 2014 marriage, to her sister Britney Spears, and to her time on Zoey 101.

And, lest we forget, she also reminds us that she was on All That.

Gotta love those Nickelodeon classics, right?

Ariana Madix: Brittany Cartwright & Jax Taylor Almost Destroyed My Relationship!

Lisa Vanderpump and all of her messy TV children are back.

Vanderpump Rules‘ season six premiere showed us a lot of drama … including some “troubles” between Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright.

Not to be outdone, Ariana Madix and Tom Sandoval have also been shown to be having relationship struggles. And they’re laying the blame for their issues directly at the feet of Jax and Brittany.

Back when we first heard about Jax Taylor cheating on Brittany Cartwright, Tom Sandoval seemed to try to distance himself from that narrative.

For a quick refresher:

Jax and Brittany have of course been together for ages, but Jax was accused of cheating on her with Faith Stowers.

And then it appeared that Faith Stowers’ period was late — suggesting that she might be pregnant with Jax’s baby.

Both Ariana and Tom expressed disbelief.

As entertaining as most of us find the idea of Jax Taylor, of all people, being happily monogamous for two years, it looks like at least some of his fellow Vanderpump Rules stars believe that he’s remained loyal to Ariana.

But while some believe that Jax has been faithful, others believed that he’d been filling Faith.

(Sorry)

To no one’s surprise, Katie Maloney was quick to bash Jax, suggesting that he should just find a girl who won’t mind his alleged cheating.

All caught up?

Well, Ariana Madix and Tom Sandoval were clearly also struggling in their relationship, but we don’t know where that storyline is going, exactly.

In an interview with TooFab, they try to explain a little about that without, you know, spoiling their entire season’s storyline on Vanderpump Rules.

They start off by talking about the drama between Jax and Brittany.

“We can’t obviously give away too much,” Ariana says. “But they are together now, as you can see on social media … it’s a lot.

You can hide a lot from social media, but people can pretty much tell if you’re still together or not.

(Also, and maybe this is a generational thing, but I love when people refer to something as “a lot.” It tells you that something will be intense and probably messy without giving any details)

“So just gird your loins for that one.”

That line could mean anything from “Faith fabricated a pregnancy just to destroy Brittany’s life!” to “Brittany is staying with Jax and has promised to help raise his lovechild once Faith gives birth.”

But, you know, probably something between those extremes.

Ariana then gets into how Jax and Brittany’s problems weren’t limited to each other.

“It’s like a ripple effect.”

That makes sense. 

“Anything that happens with any one couple, somehow ripples into all of the other people.”

When a bunch of people are close, whether they’re friends, family, frenemies, coworkers, or costars, everyone’s lives (and drama) can become interconnected.

And, specifically, Ariana says that she and Tom felt those effects.

“I think you see in the trailer that Tom and I went through some stuff so I’ll go ahead and say that that had something to do with it.”

That is … incredibly vague, Ariana.

But that’s her job.

For a scripted series, actors play characters who aren’t them at all, and are free to divulge almost everything from their personal lives.

For a reality series, though, your personal lives are the storyline. You have to keep personal details under wraps.

It it fair for Ariana and Tom to blame Jax and Brittany and that couple’s “ripple effect” for their own relationship problems?

Perhaps it will all make more sense once we’ve seen a lot more of this season.
