Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’s baby Kaitlyn enters first pageant, family has to address car seat police

It looks like baby Kaitlyn is following in the famous footsteps of her Aunt Honey Boo Boo! The above photo was posted to Alana Thompson’s official fan page with the following caption:

Aww look at GIGI’s baby! 5th runner up and people choice go Kaitlyn! now anna is hooked and we r having baby Kaitlyn a dress made look out Pageant world!

Kaitlyn is the daughter of Alana’s older sister Anna, or as fans of the show might know her, Chickadee. As we previously reported and was revealed on the show, Kaitlyn was born with an additional thumb. As for now, the doctors do not want to remove the additional digit for medical reasons (which you can read more about here).

Being that this was posted to a fan page one has to “like” via Facebook most of the comments were positive but there was one glaring exception, an entity that we here at starcasm are very familiar with in relation to our coverage of Teen Mom and 16 & Pregnant, the car seat police.

Some peeps took offense to the photo because of the way Kaitlyn is not strapped all the way in. The argument went downhill with the vast majority of folks defending the family wondering why it had to become an issue in the first place. As was pointed out frequently, little Kaitlyn wasn’t in a car when the pic was snapped.

Not one to shy away from addressing folks, the family posted another picture just to assure followers that they knew how to go about securing that car seat.

SEE we know how to properly secure baby kaitlyn’s straps and stuff on her car seats, HERE she’s in a car.. sheeeez

It’s important to note that the photo was one from before they got “ticketed” by the car seat authorities.

And so it goes for the lives of reality peeps in the spotlight. As a parent myself I understand and fully appreciate the importance of car seat safety. I also appreciate when to step off when critiquing other parents – I got enough under my own roof to deal with.

Now that we’ve got that out of the way here’s a close up from Kaitlyn’s first pageant.

Cutie patootie!
