Sweet Home Sextuplets is back for a new season. Courtney Waldrop and Eric Waldrop have their hands full with their nine children. The couple are parents to nine-year-old son Saylor Waldrop, six-year-old fraternal twin sons Wales and Bridge, and fraternal two-year-old sextuplets, daughters Rayne, Rawlings, Rivers and sons Tag, Layke, and Blu.
Season 3 picks up around Halloween. The sextuplets are just a few months shy of turning two but already are exhibiting signs of the dreaded “terrible twos”. Plus, Courtney and Eric struggle to keep things as normal for their older boys this season. However, with a family of 11, it’s certainly a delicate balance to keep so many balls in the air balanced. Here’s a sneak peek at some of what we will see this season on Sweet Home Sextuplets.
Sweet Home Sextuplets: Eric & Courtney Waldrop’s Remodel Means Cramped Quarters
Sweet Home Sextuplets ended season 2 in the midst of a major remodel. The Waldrops decided to live in the house during renovations until they discovered their house was infested with poisonous spiders. Then they scrambled to move their supersized family fast. Now as the next stage of construction begins, Eric and his wife Courtney move their kids into a trailer on their 40-acre property. No doubt space will be an issue. Afterall in their larger home space was already at a minimum. Now the family will face new challenges as they adjust to living in tight quarters with three active older boys and a set of six two-year-olds who like to wreak havoc around the house and to each other.
Sweet Home Sextuplets fans will see Eric and Courtney struggle with the challenges of living in cramped quarters. With the “babies” in the throws of terrible twos, it certainly will be a long four months in the mobile home. Additionally, Courtney decides to move forward with potty training for all six younger kids. So, finding the space for six potties as well as training definitely takes a toll on Courtney.
Saylor, Wells and Bridge Start Karate
Sweet Home Sextuplets dad Eric Waldrop takes pride in being involved with his older sons, Saylor, Wales, and Bridge’s love of playing sports. In fact, Eric coaches their respective softball teams. Eric certainly has a full plate with owning a landscaping business, tending to cattle on his 40-acre farm, coaching two softball teams, and helping Courtney with the younger kids. However, his plate will get even fuller this season as all three of his older sons decide they want to take up karate.
Of course, the Home Sweet Sextuplet parents found a way to make this wish of the older kids come true. They want all their kids to do everything other kids are doing. So adding another sport to the mix will be challenging. However, the Waldrop’s are pros at juggling so much already. So this should be nothing they cannot handle. Plus, it will get the boys away from the tight quarters at home.
Sweet Home Sextuplets: Courtney Waldrop Faces Public Scrutiny
Sweet Home Sextuplets mom of 11 Courtney Waldrop does her best to keep track of her large family. However, chasing after six active toddlers is a challenge most mothers cannot even imagine. So in order to keep tabs on her six-pack of toddlers, Courtney decides to use a harness to keep her kids close. It makes it easier for her to keep all six kids from venturing off in different directions.
However, Courtney faces grimaces and harsh words from strangers when she’s out in public with the sextuplets while they are harnessed. Many feel that “leashes” are for dogs and not for children. Clearly her husband Eric supports her decision to use harnesses. In fact, in the clip above after a woman confronts Courtney in the park, Eric comes to her defense. He says, “if she has to be responsible for six toddlers, then she can have an opinion on it,” Eric adds, “Until then, she doesn’t need to have one.”
Sweet Home Sextuplets returns for a new season Tuesday, June 16 at 10 pm on TLC.
