She will also serve 16 months on probation once she is released from prison.

“On our way to the beach, I saw Jackson notice the signs to Pensacola, Florida and began looking around without saying much to me,” said Lindsie, whom Todd shares with ex-wife Teresa Terry.

“I noticed he was watching my body language and facial expressions as he always does. He asked me if he could open the sunroof to ‘feel his papa’s air.’”

Lindsie admitted that she’s “forever trying to do what you think is best without knowing the outcome is incredibly difficult.”

The influencer said she doesn’t allow her son to visit his grandparents behind bars, adding that the “hard decisions parents face daily are not talked about enough.”

“Knowing Jackson misses his grandparents, even seeing that he has sent them text messages to phones they don’t have when I turn off his phone at night absolutely shatters me,” she shared.
