In the latest instalment of the ‘How Very Dare They’ chapter in the book Outrageous and Questionable Parenting 101, power couple Nadia and Jimmy Bartel have gone on holidays without their two-year-old son, Aston.
As the Bartels relax to the max in the Maldives, former AFL star Jimmy and fashion blogger Nadia have been keeping their Instagram followers updated on their vacation by posting numerous photos of their getaway. All the while, their son has been in the care of his adoring grandparents.
But it didn’t take long for someone to try to spark trouble in that paradise.
One commenter wrote on a photo Nadia posted of the couple, “Wow how do you guys do it. I could not leave my kid behind and go on holiday.”
Another user backed that with, “totally agree with you…”
It’s often difficult to detect tone online, but the statement seemed sanctimonious at worst, and just plain unhelpful at best, which is why many of Nadia’s followers were having none of it.
One responded, “Stop being so ridiculous you dont (sic) need to take a baby so far they need their own time your (sic) just jealous you can’t do it.”
