Maci Bookout SLAMMED for Putting Kids in Daycare: Fair or Foul?

by at .  Updated at .

Newlywed mother of three Maci Bookout has never been the most controversial member of the Teen Mom family. Not by a long shot. 

She's nowhere near up there with Jenelle Evans and Leah Messer in terms of stirring the pot or being trashed all the time by followers.

Maci finds herself under some scrutiny today, though ...

Bookout was pictured drinking during her pregnancy, but she has since confirmed that she did not know she was pregnant at the time. 

She only took a pregnancy test after her husband, Taylor McKinney, suggested it when she commented that she had gained weight.

With the news that she was expecting her third child, the Tennessee native quit her social media job in favor of looking after her family. 

Pretty nice of her. Right?! Well, you can only imagine how fans were shocked to learn that all three of Maci's children were going to daycare.

Her youngest son, Maverick, is just five months old.

"If Maci is staying at home and Taylor seemingly never works, why do Maverick and Jayde need daycare?” one user asked.

“What is Maci doing that her kids need daycare?”

It certainly raises a lot of questions, not just about Bookout and her husband, but regarding the role of daycare in general.

It's understandable that she and Taylor (seen describing his daily routine in the clip below) could want a break every so often. 

However, with the two of them apparently not working, some argue that they would not want to be apart from their children. 

They do run a T-Shirt line together, but probably does not take up much of their time over the course of a given week.

It's all pretty bizarre, but we expect Maci and Taylor will chime in with their two cents at some point in the near future. 

Or perhaps not. They tend to roll with the punches and brush off fan criticism - the few times they face it - pretty well.

They have three kids to focus on, after all.

On a different note, the longtime Teen Mom OG couple recently tied the knot in a beautiful wedding ceremony.

The only fellow MTV cast members that appear to have been in attendance were Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra. 

Amber Portwood was apparently invited, but was recovering from the recent plastic surgery she underwent.

As for some of the others?

Farrah Abraham reportedly never made the guest list, which is not the most surprising thing of all time given her history.

Seriously, that girl burns bridges like no other.

What do you think about all of this parenting controversy? Should people chill out and let Maci and Taylor make their own decisions?

Especially given that by comparison to some of their co-stars, they're living the most family-oriented, controversy-free life imaginable?
