Reality TV star Jamie Otis took to Instagram to give some praise to all of the moms being forced to work from home as they attempt to care for their babies during the coronavirus pandemic. While sharing a photo of herself and her daughter on the beach, Otis wrote, "I’m not a stay at home mom but I bet they’re secretly laughing at the rest of us thinking 'See! It isn’t so easy taking care of kids while trying to get ANYTHING else done!'"

"God bless the stay at home moms who do this all day, every day!" the post continued. "And to the mamas trying to work from home while also caring for your babies - I FEEL YOUR PAIN!😩 I’m in the same boat and the rowin’ is hard. ⁣ WE CAN GET THROUGH THIS!

..But there are no guarantees we don’t all go completely bald/grey by the end!"

The expectant mother made the post just a week after coming under major fire for choosing to travel with her family despite concerns over the virus.

In a lengthy apology post on Instagram, Otis wrote, " We fly home tomorrow and I’d be lying if I said I’m not scared.😷 I wish we went home a couple weeks ago, but we didn’t realize how serious this corona virus is...I’m not one who can’t admit when I’m wrong. I believe that those who can recognize their faults, apologize, and take action to change are good people. I try not to live in fear. I really believed if I just kept a safe distance & sanitized myself, my family, and everything we touched we’d be fine going out & living as normal as possible."

The apology continued with, "During the last few weeks we obvs went to the beach. We went to the pool (but found a spot 6ft away from the few others who were there). We took Gracie to the playground but made sure to wash our hands really well after. All along I was risking our family and others without even realizing it...I assumed this whole covid 19 thing would kinda just blow over like the seasonal flu, but it’s A LOT more serious than I ever could have imagined."

"I want to send out a sincere apology to YOU bc by me going out to 'live as normal as possible' I was risking YOU and YOUR FAMILY," she explained. "I’m a registered nurse and I should know better. I’m ashamed of myself for this and I’m genuinely sorry. We will not be living so frivolously any longer. I have gloves & masks for our trip home tomorrow & of course protect ourselves and to protect othersfrom us and our silly choices."

Otis then concluded her apology with some kind words by writing, "I hope you’re staying safe, too! We will all get through this together. Sending you SO MUCH LOVE & thinking of YOU!💗"
