‘Doubling Down with the Derricos’ Update: Karen Derrico Struggles with Mommy Guilt

Everyone knows that Karen Derrico is a supermom. But that doesn’t mean she doesn’t struggle with guilt like other mothers. In fact, she recently said that she found it hard to ask for help. And that she felt like she should be able to take care of the kids without outside help.

She did say she wouldn’t mind having a family member help. But Doubling Down with the Derricos star Deon Derrico said they needed to get a nanny to help with everything. And it seems like Karen Derrico is finally breaking down and considering the idea.

Both Deon and Karen come from big families. And most of the people in those families did it on their own. But that doesn’t mean they have to do it without help, according to Deon.

Deon tells Karen a Nanny Is a Must

Deon had a serious talk with Karen from Doubling Down with the Derricos and pointed out that they needed to be able to go places together. Karen already felt like she was “in it alone,” with baby Dawsyn’s doctor appointments. But Deon couldn’t go with her because no one could watch all of the other kids.

Karen seemed to give in when she could see it was important for her children. Like most mothers, she will do more for her children than even for herself. And Deon of Doubling Down with the Derricos saw the need and got her help.

They did some interviews with nannies and narrowed it down to two potential winners. But in recent spoilers, they still didn’t tell whether they would pick Robin or if Lindsey would win the position with the family.

Doubling Down with the Derricos: Robin or Lindsey?

Picking the perfect nanny for this TLC family is no small task. None of the nannies the TLC couple interviewed had experience with so many children. In fact, the highest number of children anyone mentioned was six.

Nanny Robin went with the Doubling Down with the Derricos family to swim lessons. The editing showed again and again the nanny forgetting the kid’s names, but Deon and wife Karen said they didn’t expect her to remember all the kid’s names right off the bat. She is a strong contender and Deon’s favorite.

Nanny Lindsey came over to the house and helped the family with their gingerbread house competition. Karen and Deon said Lindsey did a good job interacting with the kids too. And that makes their nanny decision even more difficult.
