Parenthood is definitely challenging, but Sister Wives star Maddie Brush does it all with a smile. She’s had her share of challenges over the years but wouldn’t trade being a mother for anything.

Her son Axel has Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) and her daughter Evie has Fibular Aplasia, Tibial Campomelia, and Oliogosyndactyly Syndrome (FACTO).

The children require a lot of love and care, which Maddie is more than happy to give to them. Sister Wives fans love seeing how devoted she is as a mother.

Maddie Brush and her children enjoy playtime just like any other family

Axel and Evie may have their health concerns, but that doesn’t stop them from wanting to play just like every other child. And Maddie Brush is absolutely here for every one of these tender childhood moments.

“One of my favorite things about being a mom is seeing what my kids come up with when they use their imaginations. 💖” Maddie posted on her Instagram page recently. In the photo, you can see Maddie and Evie playing together.

Evie’s FACTO diagnosis means that she’s missing some bones. Doctors managed to diagnose Evie not long after her birth, so her parents have known about the condition from the start.

However, Maddie struggled with extreme mom guilt after learning about Evie’s condition.

“I’m sitting there and I’m like, ‘Oh, what did I do? Did I drink too much soda pop?’ And I’m feeling guilty and freaking out [that] there’s something wrong with my daughter,” Maddie confessed to PEOPLE shortly after Evie’s birth.

But thankfully, Evie seems to be a happy child — she just has some health challenges she needs to work through.

As per PEOPLE, Evie is missing a thumb, a toe, a calf bone in one leg, and has a bowed tibia. Two of her fingers are also fused together.

“There will be limitations, but not huge hindrances,” Maddie Brush said at the time about Evie’s diagnosis. “It’s abnormal, and it catches people off guard, but I want her to grow up and feel proud about who she is. If I’m hiding this to protect her, is it really helpful?”

The mother of two enjoys other family projects

If you like to keep up with the Sister Wives stars on social media, then you probably know about Janelle’s side business. She sells weight loss products and sometimes gets her kids in on the fun.

A recent photo of Maddie Brush and Janelle Brown posed perfectly on a staircase with weight loss products in hand definitely caught the internet’s attention. Several fans joked they would drink the product if it made them look more like Maddie.
