"Mummy's so cruel isn't she, going to nursery so you can socialize and play with those children all day?
"How cruel am I?"
Chloe continued: "How about poor freaking mama?
"I need a break, too, plus, I'm going back to the office."
"These people make me laugh. They don’t offend me at all, so don’t worry guys. I address it because I find their comments funny," she captioned the post.
Despite revealing she was going back to work and (rightfully) needed some alone time, trolls still saw an issue with her decision to take Chester to nursery.
One remarked: "'Needs a break' but pops out another one."
However, plenty of people praised the mum for taking Chester to nursery one and a half days a week.
One person added: "Nursery worker here, it's extremely beneficial for them to start young, builds relationships and helps support routine! It's also good for parent."
Another wrote: "Being home with a baby is stressful! Mentally and physically draining! Normalise parents having a break. Smashing it Chloe."
"Completely agree with what you’re doing. I went back to work when my little one was 6 months, best thing I ever did for my mental health," commented a third.
