Remember being a kid? It was such a carefree time. We didn't have to worry about bills or taxes or jobs. All we were concerned with was having fun. We got to play with our friends, and we weren't yet self-aware enough to worry about social standing or becoming self-conscious. Those were the days. And not to mention the TV shows! There were entire channels devoted just to us. Nickelodeon was on non-stop at our household. Their shows were awesome, and the actors that portrayed the characters reuniting brings us to tears every dang time.
One of these shows was Zoey 101. The story of children at a Malibu boarding school was massively popular in its run on Nickelodeon from 2005-2008. It starred a young Jamie-Lynn Spears. Does that last name sound a tad familiar to you? It should, as she comes from a pretty famous family.
That's right, Jamie Lynn Spears is the younger sister of Britney Spears. You likely knew that. What you probably don't know is when exactly this photo was taken, as Britney never seems to age. Seriously, this could be 15 minutes or 15 years old. The woman truly is a queen.
It wasn't until June that Jamie Lynn broke her silence. She posted a photo on Instagram of Maddie celebrating her ninth birthday with the paramedics that saved her life. She captioned the picture with, "My baby is 9 years old today, and more then ever we realize how precious every day is."
Jamie Lynn opened up about the harrowing experience 10 months after it happened. It turns out Maddie needed to be air-lifted from the scene of the accident to a nearby hospital. She was admitted to the ICU and spent five days in the hospital before she was cleared to go home.
Enough time has passed that Lynn Spears feels comfortable talking about her feelings during this experience. She said it was a mother's worst nightmare. But more than anything, she wanted to thank everyone that sent their prayers and especially the paramedics that saved her daughter.
Lynn Spears refers to the two paramedics as angels.
"The hardest milestone me and my family have ever faced was almost losing our beautiful Maddie. But thanks to God and the two angels ... we were able to celebrate Maddie turning 9 years old all together. This milestone became a true miracle, and we are forever grateful for that."
Since the accident, Maddie has luckily made a full recovery. Her family is now concerned with getting her back into her routine. Namely, being a carefree childhood again and getting to go to Disney World with her cousins.
Jamie Lynn Spears had Maddie at a very young age. However, she doesn't regret it at all. As she said, "Some milestones we never see coming, but I'm so blessed that Ii did. Maddie is the biggest blessing in my life so far."
We're happy to hear she didn't lose her, and that she's doing well in such a loving home.
