Oh Jenelle Evans ... arguably reality TV's worst mom ever. At least in the past, she was, which is why there are so many haters out there just waiting for her to screw up again. Even though the Teen Mom 2 star seems to have really gotten her crap together this past year, it seems like the Internet is waiting to jump down her throat every time she makes a somewhat questionable parenting choice.
But could the commenters be right about Jenelle's mad mommy skillz (or lack thereof) this time? Over the weekend, Jenelle tweeted a picture of her boyfriend Nathan Griffith and his daughter, along with her 4-year-old son Jace, in the hot tub. Jenelle is also nine months pregnant, and everyone knows you're not supposed to stew your baby belly in a hot bubbly Jacuzzi.
Immediately people were jumping all over her for being in the hot tub while pregnant, to which Jenelle responded:
Obviously I wasn't in the hot tub.. U can tell from the angle of the pic lol #HatersGonnaHate ð���— Jenelle Evans (@PBandJenelley_1) June 8, 2014
She also tweeted in response to a direct question about the dangers of pregnant women using hot tubs, "I wasn't in there.. I was sitting on the side with my feet in."
But even if Jenelle kept baby Kaiser in her belly out of the hot water, she still seems to be in the metaphorical hot water by allowing both her 4-year-old son Jace and Nathan's daughter Emery to soak in it. Many advocates of children's health recommend that children under 5 not be allowed in the hot tub at all, so of course she's going to get crap for it.
There are a few things to consider -- the actual temp of the water, how long they were in it, and if the kids exhibited signs of dehydration -- all of which make a huge difference in the safety factor issue. But as she said in another tweet, it was 81 degrees out. Probably not the best time to allow your little kids to take a long hot soak.
Do you think Jenelle made a mistake allowing the kids into the hot tub?
