‘Counting On’: Jessa Duggar Clapped Back at a Follower Who Questioned What She Does for a Living

The Duggars have been featured on television for years, and fans have made it clear that they have favorites amongst Michelle and Jim Bob’s 19 children. And one Duggar we’ve been keeping up with for years is Jessa. Jessa now has three children with husband Ben Seewald, but fans remember when she used to help all of her younger siblings out in the big family home on 19 Kids and Counting. While her life looks a lot different now that she’s well into adulthood, we’re still glad we get to see what she’s up to on social media.

Most of Jessa’s followers are supportive of her and her life, but every once in awhile, she has a witty response to someone who questions what she does in her life. Here’s what she just said to a follower who attempted to troll her social media.

While Jessa is certainly a fan favorite, her social media presence has changed quite a bit over the last few months. Fans adore seeing her husband and kids on her Instagram, of course. But since having her newborn daughter, Ivy, her followers have wondered where she’s been — and if she’s OK.

As fans grew concerned that something happened to Jessa after a month-long social media absence, it was the Duggar family who addressed the situation and reassured everyone that the Duggar daughter was just fine. “She’s doing great! Busy taking care of her little ones!” the Duggar Family Instagram responded to a comment on this post of Ben Seewald and his and Jessa’s son, Spurgeon, riding on a carousel. And since that post, it seems Jessa has made more of an effort to prove to her followers that she’s doing just fine by making posts about Ben and their three kids.

When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one person to dissolve the beard— keep the ‘stache, at least for a day or two. ‍ . A decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. . We hold these truths to be self-evident, that beards can be great things. They can help protect the skin from harmful UV rays, as well as wind, chafing and traumatic injury. Big beards can be very attractive and handsome. He liked it, I loved it. . But who would’ve guessed that the daily upkeep for big beards could be so demanding? You’ve got to use special beard shampoos, and then apply beard oil toward the roots so your skin doesn’t dry out. It’s advantageous to use beard wax and a beard comb to shape it and keep it from sticking out in every direction. Then there’s time devoted to trimming, shaping and fading. No man wants a routine that requires him to spend more time on his hair than his wife is spending on hers. . Whenever any Beard becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new facial hair, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. . Even though I was sad to see it go, it is nice to see more of his handsome face again. ☺️ When removing his beard, he shaved it off in sections, trying out nearly every beard variety and style under the sun. He ended on this, and we thought it would be fun to keep the mustache for a few days before shaving it off. ‍ Henry likes it. Ivy’s like “Meh.” Spurgeon said “Put your beard back on!” . Beard plans moving forward? He says he is not opposed to growing out a big beard again one day, but for now he just needed a little break. Shaving clean each day also takes time, so for minimal upkeep, he says he prefers a short beard— No need for wax or oils or beard combs. Every few days, just shave the upper cheeks and neck (because neck beards are no bueno), and trim the length every week or two. Done. Easy. . So that’s the plan. There’s the update, not that anyone was even asking.

Jessa’s back on the ‘gram, and she’s been posting a lot of her kids and husband as of late. Of course, being back on social media means her followers who troll her are willing to take a stab at her latest content. And recently, it was a post of Ben that got a ton of attention. She added this photo of her husband with a very well-groomed mustache — and in the caption, she used the Declaration of Independence as a guide for talking about his facial hair.

“When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one person to dissolve the beard— keep the ‘stache, at least for a day or two,” she started the post. And while most of her followers thought her writing was funny and brilliant, a few others had less pleasant responses. “What exactly do u do for a job?” was one of the top comments.

Here’s her brilliant response

Jessa’s no stranger to clapping back at those who troll her, and she seemingly always has a witty way of letting everyone know she’s aware of the negative commentary that occurs on her ‘gram. When the follower questioned what she does for a living, she wrote back, “I’m currently caring for 3 kids 3 and under. 24/7, 365. Still gotta work on sick days, and vacations too for that matter. It’s hard work, but so rewarding. Honestly though, I feel so blessed to be able to stay at home with them! I know not every mother has that opportunity.”

Fans loved Jessa’s subtle way of shutting down the hate, too. As one follower commented on the thread, “Oh Jessa, you are so nice to answer that very tacky question.” And another wrote, “Staying home with your kids is a full time job. Good for you for being able to do it.”

The subtle shade on her ‘gram has never gotten Jessa down before, so we’re sure she’ll continue posting no matter what. Keep on keepin’ on, Jessa!
