Nadia Bartel is the latest mum feeling the need to defend her parenting choices.
This week she is defending her choice to holiday without her toddler.
The style blogger and her AFL star husband, Jimmy Bartel, are currently enjoying the Maldives.
The surprising part? Their two year old son, Aston, is at home with his grandparents.
Her followers were quick to question her decision with many asking “Wow, how do you guys do it? I could not leave my kid behind and go on holiday.”
Nadia soon felt the need to jump in to explain her choice.
“So you would never go on a trip without your baby?” she responded.
“I miss him like crazy but I think it’s important to have time with just us too, this is the first time we have left him in two years.
“But I don’t need to explain myself to you as I normally don’t reply to fake accounts like yours.”
Would you holiday without the kids?
