Kailyn Lowry is basically Super Mom, so it's shocking when we see her make a big parenting mistake. Like on Wednesday night's episode of Teen Mom 2, when she left her infant Lincoln in the car while she picked up 4-year-old Isaac from preschool.
What? Come on, there are parenting gray areas, and then there are lines you just don't cross, and leaving a baby alone in a car is one of them. Haven't we all heard the horror stories of what happens when helpless infants and toddlers get forgotten about in cars? And here was Kail, deliberately leaving Lincoln!
The social networks noticed too, and the backlash was harsh. One commenter said, "Am I the only one kind of disgusted with Kailyn leaving her f*****g infant in the car unsupervised? that is s**t I don't like." Another said, "Did Kailyn just leave her newborn in the car while she goes inside to pick up Isaac? She sucks at being a mom just like her mom."
Ouch. That was way harsh. And apparently unfounded. Kail took to Twitter to defend herself, and it turns out the whole situation was some bad editing on MTV's part.
I did NOT leave Lincoln in the car alone. Someone from the crew stood with him while I went inside. #TeenMom2— Kail Lowry (@KailLowry) September 4, 2014
Oh. Yeah, that makes sense. It's so easy with reality TV to sometimes forget that there's a whole production going on behind the cameras. Of course there was someone there to watch Lincoln while Kail popped into Isaac's school.

We knew Kailyn would never be so irresponsible!
Do you think Lincoln was safe in the car with a crew member standing by, or should Kail have taken him in with her?
