Meghan Edmonds Claps Back After Getting Shamed For Spending Time Away From Kids To Take Son To Treatment

Meghan Edmonds has had a rough year. Aside from Jim Edmonds’ embarrassing sexting activities, she has been dealing with a lot as a mother. One of her twin sons Hart has been struggling with neurological problems.

She has done what she can to get him to the best doctors and pursue treatments that could help progress his development. Currently, she lives in St. Louis, but she took Hart to Los Angeles and New Orleans for treatment, seemingly leaving her son Hayes and daughter Aspen behind. And, because this is 2019, mommy shamers came out in full force on Instagram. Seriously, guys? Isn’t Meghan going through enough these days?

Meghan addressed the haters in an Instagram Story on Sunday night. The post disappeared after twenty-four hours, but Us Weekly reported her remarks.

Meghan began, “I just looked at my Instagram and saw that a lot of you guys have a lot of comments about why did I leave my other two kids in St. Louis.”

She went on to reveal, “When Hart had his therapy in L.A., I brought Aspen and Hayes out — my mom and a nanny did — for a week. It was pure pandemonium. Aspen and Hayes didn’t understand why I had to leave every day to be with Hart and spend literally over half the day with [him] only. They were totally knocked off their schedules. Hart was knocked off his … and he wasn’t able to focus on his therapy. Therefore, I made the very difficult decision to keep Aspen and Hayes in St. Louis while Hart and I went to New Orleans and focused on this.”

She’s damned if she brought them and damned if she didn’t. As if life isn’t stressful enough for Meghan right now.

Meghan continued, “A lot of you guys think because we have money I’m able to ship my kids all over this place with nannies, but my values are that my kids have stability and routine in their lives. … I’ve decided to put that priority first and foremost before me and Hart seeing them. They’re with their father every day. They know love. I FaceTime them every day.”

Plus, this really isn’t anyone else’s business in all honesty. If anything, Meghan could use some support from social media. Instead, she’s receiving a lot of criticism for trying to do what’s best for her own children.

In her Instagram Story, Meghan revealed that they “decided to rent a house in California so Aspen and Hayes can come out and go to a stable routine household.” She and Hart will be in California for treatment for three weeks two times a year.

Meghan concluded, “Take your opinions and keep them to yourself because this whole thing sucks. Did I say that enough? It sucks. There’s no right answer and we’re trudging through this the best we can. So let me be. Give me a little space.” Give her space or give her support. Anything else is so unwarranted.
