Audrey Roloff Sends Inspiring Message to Fellow Moms

Audrey Roloff recently ran through a list of seven things she loved about her daughter.

But while we’re sure the Little People, Big World star could come up with an even longer list, she’s actually here to talk about the one thing she hates about being a parent:


You know what she means, don’t you, fellow parents around the Internet?

This is a topic Audrey has touched on in the past, writing to her Instagram followers at one point:

“I feel guilty sometimes for not being able to just stay in bed and play with [my daughter], or for putting her in the play gym to be entertained by the dangling animals instead of me.”

That’s silly, of course.

It’s understandable and relatable, but still silly… because of course we cannot be with our kids at all times, tending to their every need 24/7.

In her latest Instagram post, Roloff again brings up the subject of guilt, but she does so in different manner.

The reality star tries to help other parents feel better about any one of a number of reasons why they may feel at the moment as if they messed something up with their child.

“Moms,” Audrey opens simply, adding:

“You’re not the only one who cut your baby’s nail too shoot. You’re not the only one who had to watch countless YouTube tutorials to figure out how to properly baby wrap.

“You’re not the only one who didn’t know what to do when your baby smacked her head on the hardwood for the first time.”

We can see what Audrey is doing here and we admire the effort.

We’d just like to point out that she could have written this note to Moms AND Dads — because there are plenty of men out there who take parenting very seriously and who feel all the the feelings Roloff is describing in this caption.

Which continues as follows:

You’re not the only one who didn’t know it’s not safe to put your baby in a puffy coat in the car seat.

You’re not the only one who didn’t know you’re supposed to start brushing your baby’s teeth from the moment you see them emerge.

You’re not the only one who is constantly googling what foods to give your baby, and how much they should be eating or how much they should be sleeping.

It’s all so very true.

Being a parent is like trying to avoid one landmine after another, on a near daily basis.

It’s impossible to ever relax, to ever feel as though you have a full grasp on what is best for your son(s) or daughter(s) because a new challenge or obstacle is always just around the corner.

Scroll down to see how Roloff concluded her post…

You’re not the only one who has been criticized or glared at for doing something wrong. I have too. You’re not the only one. You’re not alone. Even though you might feel like it sometimes, we are all figuring out this motherhood thing as we go.

So I’ll be here.

Sharing what I’ve learned, where I’ve failed and how the Lord is encouraging, empowering, and equipping me as I embrace all that it means to be a mother.

Tag a mom friend that you want to encourage.

Audrey and husband Jeremy welcomed Ember Jean into the world last September.

Both have been open about how difficult it was at first, especially for Audrey, who suffered a great deal of pain while breastfeeding.

But here they are, having overcome those initial fears and tears and confident enough to pass along all they’ve learned to other new parents across the world.

Once again, we appreciate Audrey’s intention here.

Next time, though, she can just go ahead and address both genders.

Kailyn Lowry: I’m the Most Hated of All the Teen Moms!

The Teen Mom has introduced some truly unforgettable characters to the world.

And if you’re a fan of the show, then we probably don’t need to tell you that they’re not always unforgettable in a good way.

Farrah Abraham, Jenelle Evans, Adam Lind, Matt Baier–these are just a handful of the troubled parents who have made the show so simultaneously compelling and infuriating over the years.

You’d think with such a large basket of deplorables to choose from, fans of Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2 would have plenty of targets for their anonymous online rage.

And yet, some feel the need to demonstrate that they’re more discerning with their outrage.

They’re like the wine aficionados of the reality television world, and for them, hating Farrah is too simple and prosaic, like a boxed merlot from Costco.

These indignation snobs need something more subtle and sophisticated to please their anger palettes, and for many, the only answer is a draught of vintage Kailyn Lowry.

Yes, for reasons that aren’t entirely clear Kailyn is one of the most hated Teen Moms.

Her detractors offer many reasons for this–she had three children by three different men; she seems to have endless time for travel and elective cosmetic surgeries; she didn’t fight hard enough to save her marriage–but none of them quite hold up.

Jenelle also has three baby daddies; just about all the moms have had some sort of work done; and Kailyn’s divorce from Javi was a mutual decision. 

Kailyn recently opened about this bizarre phenomenon in a surprisingly candid interview with Us Weekly.

“I think some of it has to do with being outspoken,” Lowry said.

“Some of it has to do with being misunderstood and a lot of it is the judgment of the fact that all my children have different fathers. People comment on my weight and body and my kids’ fathers the most.”

Needless to say, being a subject of scorn and derision to tens of thousands of strangers can have a considerable impact on one’s psyche:

“It makes me second-guess every move I make, diminishes any confidence I may or may not have left and causes me to stay guarded at all times,” Kail tells the tabloid.

Lowry says the constant criticism has permanently damaged her self-esteem and led her to pursue drastic measures in efforts to alter her appearance.

Last week, Kailyn canceled a plastic surgery appointment just hours before she was scheduled to go under the knife again.

“I wanted to get surgery because of this, but at the last minute, I realized I don’t want to go through it again and I think I can lose weight on my own, so I canceled,” Lowry said.

With an unmistakable tone of despair, Kailyn says she’s struggling to come to terms with the fact that the abuse will likely never stop:

“I don’t think there is anything I can do to help this. It’s not going to go away,” she says.

“I think it’s getting progressively worse. … I’m probably the most hated mom on the franchise.”

Something to think about next time you’re gearing up to tweet something nasty at your least-favorite reality star.

Watch Teen Mom 2 online to remind yourself of the many ways in which Kail is really not that bad.


Selena Gomez: Her Mom’s Upset About More than Justin Bieber

Selena’s mom, Mandy Teefey, doesn’t love that she’s back with her ex. To the point where Mandy had a breakdown and went to the hospital because she couldn’t deal with it.

However, we’re hearing a claim that there’s more to Selena’s tensions with her mom than the Biebs.

And apparently, it’s a beef that goes back for years.

Selena’s mom, Mandy Teefey, was distressed — to the point where she required hospitalization — when she learned that Selena and Justin are in couples therapy.

This isn’t one of those Scientology things where Mandy’s just super anti-therapy or whatever.

No, what had Mandy so bent out of shape was the haunting, ugly realization that Selena’s little reunion with Justin wasn’t just a temporary thing.

Selena seems to be serious about resuming her relationship with the Biebs.

And quite frankly, that’s every mother’s nightmare.

No, this isn’t just about the fact that Justin Bieber isn’t hot anymore.

This is a bit more serious.

The reason that Selena Gomez’s whole family hates Justin is because they had front-row seats to the damage that her relationship with him did to mental health and her emotional well-being.

Now they’re watching her fight Lupus and are worried that she’ll soon be fighting on two fronts as Justin’s personal issues and bad behavior once again take their toll on the talented singer.

Besides, he wasted years of her youth before she got Lupus. Even if his behavior is totally different now, that’s not something that a mother could forgive easily.

If at all.

However, E! reports that there’s more putting a strain on Selena’s relationship with her mom than just her choice in penises.

“Selena has always said that the one person that means the most to her is her mom, Mandy.”

However, this source says that not everything’s perfect in their dynamic.

“But still, they’ve had a really complicated relationship and have gone through a lot of ups and downs.”

Everybody has their ups and downs — even if you have a great relationship with your mom.

But apparently, for Selena, the low points could be really, really low.

There was apparently an “entire year” during which Selena and Mandy didn’t speak, after Selena dropped Mandy as her manager back in 2014.

“It caused a huge rift in their relationship. Mandy wouldn’t even let Selena talk to her sister for a long time.”

That sounds awful.

“Mandy and Selena’s stepdad really did everything they could for Selena.”

That stepdad being Brian Teefey. Though, to be fair, that’s your obligation as parents. You don’t get a prize for that.

“So when she fired her it took a toll on Mandy emotionally and professionally.”

“Mandy lost her clout as a manager after Selena left. It caused a major rift in their relationship but they eventually reconnected.”

Honestly? We’re totally Team Mandy when it comes to the resurrection of Jelena.

(We do think that she’s going about it the wrong way. Just say a few words, then outwardly accept it, suffer in silence, and then offer her a shoulder to cry on when she realizes her mistake)

But, based on this, it sounds like Selena was in the right back in 2014. She was, what, 22?

That’s old enough to have a manager that’s not your mom. It sounds like Mandy may have just taken that the wrong way.
