Audrey Roloff is not known for stirring up controversy.
Yes, early in her reality show career, the Little People, Big World star received some flak about posing naked in a bathtub, mostly because she has built a reputation as being a rather staunch Christian.
This incident took place in August of 2016.
Since then, Audrey has mostly just used her Instagram page as a way to gush about three things:
- Her faith.
- Her husband.
- And, now that she's been a mother for about eight months, her daughter Ember Jean.
When Audrey does create outrage online, it's typically due to something she said regarding these loved ones or her religion.
For example, Roloff (deservedly perhaps?) heard it from many followers a few days ago after an episode of Little People, Big World aired in which she labeled baby formula as "sinful."
We can understand why lots of people did not react favorably to that terminology.
But we most definitely cannot fathom why so many trolls out there are dragging Audrey all over the place for her latest set of social media photos.
One is posted above and the other below.
They were snapped of the relatively new mother during a recent trip to Hawaii... and they're adorable, right?!?
They feature Audrey and Ember at total peace and contentment on the beach.
At least that's how we interpreted the images.
However, others on the Internet have sadly focused on Ember's lack of clothing and actually given Audrey a hard time for sharing pictures of her naked child online.
"WTH, Auds, put a bathing suit on her!" one disgusted Internet user wrote in reply to this image, while another labeled it as "inappropriate" and still another went as far as to call it "pornographic."
That's just crazy talk, in our opinion, and it says a lot more about the person writing it than about Audrey herself.
But one comment did hit home a little more accurately.
One person noted that the pictures are harmless and cute, but that there are "pervs" on the Web that may look at them the "wrong way," encouraging Audrey to be aware of such gross individuals when posting such snapshots.
We can sadly see that.
Roloff, to her credit, is not letting the misguided haters get her down.
She shared a lengthy caption with these pictures that summed up her take on motherhood so far.
"This was an evening of undistracted playfulness with our little girl. Splashing in the ocean and digging in the sand," opened Audrey, adding:
"I think it was C.S. Lewis that said, 'Children aren’t a distraction from more important work. They are the most important work.'
"I’ll admit it. I’m a heroic multitasker. And although this might be a skill worthy of praise in our culture, it’s a tendency I’m trying to fight against. I want to be more present, more tuned-in, and more alive in each moment, task, or encounter.
"Especially when it comes to motherhood."
I don’t want to model busyness, I want my life to reflect discipline, priorities, and healthy rhythms of rest. I want my daughter to know by my actions that raising her is a privellage and a blessing, not a burden.
Moms how do you fight agaisnt the temptaion to multitask?!
This isn't the first time Audrey has reached out to her fellow moms.
Do you gave a response to her question here, ladies?
