Jessa posted a photo of her son Spurgy riding a tractor in the family’s backyard. The post was about how much the two-year-old loves “mowers, tractors, and skid steers,” but a fan chose to focus on something entirely unrelated.

“Don’t you think he should be out of diapers by now?” a fan asked. While Jessa could have turned the other cheek, she decided to stick up for her parenting choices.

“My philosophy is that if they aren’t able to do the whole thing from pulling their pants down and getting themselves on the toilet, to pulling their pants back up and washing their hands, then they aren’t ready,” Jessa responded, adding a monkey emoji hiding its eyes.

“Otherwise it feels like it’s actually the parent who’s potty training and doing all the work. Lol!” she continued. “I’ve been around kids, and I’m aware of the signs of readiness. My 2 ½ year old is getting close, but not quite there, so we’re not rushing it.”

Jessa is a pro at clapping back at the mommy-shamers. When followers were concerned that Jessa may be giving her one-year-old Henry Fanta soda, she dryly replied, “No, he prefers coffee and energy drinks.” She later added, “And of course I’m joking. He only drinks breastmilk and water.”
