Looks like Jessa Duggar is in hot water (pun intended) again. The Counting On star is getting mommy-shamed on social media after sharing a seemingly innocent story about sons Spurgeon, 2, and Henry, 11 months. The 25-year-old mama told her followers how she had to go to the store to buy husband Ben Seewald a new phone after her toddler let the cell go for a little swim.
"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," she wrote on Instagram. "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! 😆💙👦🏻"
Ha! It's just money! Down the (literal) toilet! But, in all honesty, these things happen. Sometimes kids get their hands on things that are not toys and electronics break. But, Jessa's fans aren't upset at the fact that the kids are breaking expensive gadgets — they're concerned about their safety.
"I’m just sending out a warning that it takes 10 seconds for a child to drowned in a toilet and I know this from personal experience so yes if he was allowed to be in there with the toilet seat open on attended that they didn’t know what he was doing I feel the need to give a fair warning," one follower wrote.
But other fans think it's silly to criticize the star about this... especially when we don't know all the facts. "No one said he wasn't supervised," a follower added. "My son threw my phone in the toilet with me in the bathroom with him. Toddlers are fast!" Another wrote, "It hurts my heart to scroll past some of these nasty comments above 😔🙏🏻 You’re a great mama, don’t ever forget that." No one's perfect!
