How crazy is it to think that not that long ago, a good amount of people would say that Leah Messer was Teen Mom’s biggest train wreck?
A couple of years ago, Jenelle Evans was relatively quiet with her drama — she had kicked that heroin habit, and was actually getting along pretty well. You know, for her.
Around that same time, Kailyn Lowry seemed happy enough in her marriage with Javi Marroquin, and we all know Chelsea Houska has never really had any scandals, apart from her relationship with Adam Lind.
At that point, Briana DeJesus wasn’t on Teen Mom 2, so that just left Leah.
And Leah provided enough drama for everyone.
She had that prescription pill addiction that caused her to nod off on camera, and eventually to go to rehab.
There was also that period of time in which she really struggled with her parenting responsibilities, so much that she actually lost custody of her twins to Corey Simms.
Everyone saw Leah as a hot mess who couldn’t even feed her kids. It was sad.
But look how far she’s come now!
In this season of Teen Mom 2, it looks like this girl has grown so, so much. She’s getting into motivational speaking, she’s stepping up as a mother.
You can see exactly what we’re talking about in this lovely little sneak peek for next week’s episode!
In the clip, Leah takes all three of her girls, twins Ali and Gracie and little Addie, on a family picnic.
She explains to the twins that they’ll be in different classes this year, because “even though you’re twins, you’re two different kids.”
Ali asks if they’ll still get to spend time with each other, but Gracie explains that they didn’t really spend time together even when they were in the same class, because the teacher “thinks that we’re gonna jibber jabber.”
Yeah, nothing much really happens here — none of that trademark Teen Mom trash — but it’s so nice to see a simple, sweet moment with this family.
