“Baby Lyssa” is proud of her teenage daughter, Abbie as she expresses joy over her high school graduation.
The former bounty hunter shared picturesfrom her daughter’s latest achievement on Instagram as she excitedly captioned the post with nostalgias of Abbie’s childhood.
In the photos, Mother and daughter looked exhilarated as they stood in what looked like the venue for the graduation event. Chapman wrote as she reminisced on motherhood:
“Feels like I saw the past 17 years of diapers, first words, first steps, boo-boos, summer camp, homework, smiles, tears, and everything, and everything in between pass before my eyes watching her walk to grab that diploma. My sweet Abbie, you're going to do amazing things in this world. This is time to look around, figure out what you want and go get it !”

Feels like I saw the past 17 years of, diapers, first words, first steps, boo-boos, summer camps, homework, smilies, tears and everything in between pass before my eyes watching her walk to grab that diploma. My sweet Abbie, you’re going to do amazing things in this world. This is the time to look around, figure out what you want and go get it ! #ImSoProud #graduation2019 #SkippedAGrade #CumLaude
The graduation ceremony comes weeks after Lyssa Chapman and her stepmom, Beth Chapman got involved in a public row on social media.
It all began with Beth who took to Twitter as she claimed that “Baby Lyssa” did not send her wishes on Mother’s Day. Beth:
"It's the most hurtful act not to acknowledge the woman who gave you life or [the one who] save it. It's a thankless job sometimes and one that requires [patience] and forgiveness, I've been blessed with my kids and my bonus kids. I love them equally,”
The reality star went on to accuse Lyssa of not inviting her and “Dog” for Abbie’s graduation.

Lyssa in her defense replied her stepmom in a separate tweet as she disclaimed all Beth said, making it known that she did wish Beth well on Mother’s Day and equally informed the older Chapmans on Abbie’s big day. Lyssa added that Beth was away on purpose so as not to attend her daughter’s graduation. Lyssa:
"I’m not going to battle with you ever again If your intent was to hurt me or Abbie with lies, Don’t worry. You didn’t. I am so excited, happy and proud there is nothing you can do to dull my or Abbie’s shine. As we both know you never intended to be home in Hawaii this week, and I’m sorry you feel some type of way.”

Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. 10 That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 New Living Translation (NLT)
The crux of it all is that the two have a long-standing rift from way back. Lyssa once revealed that she detested living with her father and stepmom coupled with “fighting and drugs.” The Celebrity also said that she was once assaulted by a friend of her father’s.
Beth and Lyssa reconciled in 2018, but it seems it didn’t work out after all as it seems the bad blood is still present.
