Transcript for 14 kids and counting
derricos' house is like a ballet. It's agottic. We have to constantly be on "Have a seat," "Eat your breakfast," "Get everything together," it's definitely a job when they get done. The amount of money that we spent on grocery -- oh, my gosh, 2500 to 3500 a month, easy. That was a clip from tlc's newest show, "Doubling down with the derricos," with 14 kids ranging from age 1 to 14. They have a packed house to say the least. What's even more extraordinary -- they have quintuplets, triplets and two sets of twins in their family. They're joining us now and this is just a big screen of cuteness right there, but I know that this is a calm moment. You have 11 of your kids, three of them aren't in the picture, you've got them napping. Four sets of multiples. I'm sure you get this all the time -- how is that possible? How did this happen? Blessings of god, I mean, it runs on both sides of the family and I think god said I'm going to give you quadruple dose of this. They said god doesn't give you more than you can handle. I don't know if I can handle that. Is a large household something you've always wanted? Yes. We've both always wanted a large family. She gave the golden answer which was I want as many children as god will bless me with and to me -- that was that golden response. But I think a lot of people are thinking, three or four, not 14. Well, see, I had my eyes on about eight or nine roughly, when she said whatever god blesses us with that was a best answer. All right, we're focusing on back to school this week, what is that going to look like this year for your kids? I mean, people are complaining about having one or two at home with, you know, a hybrid schooling situation, how are you all going to tackle this? But when you have a lovely wife like I do who has early childhood education under her belt that makes a world of difference. So go ahead, baby. So, thank you. We'll be homeschooling like he said, early childhood education is my background. We got our homeschool curriculum kits in and I'm going to start to set them apart. I already have a schedule set up. I'm going to be excited to share with the world and help other moms out there, like, hey, I'm doing this by yourself with 14, you can do it. I'm right there with you. No one can complain about their situation when they see yours. And I see that you have them in uniforms, they're all matching, that's so cute. I know that -- I know that you kind of probably already answered this, I bet everyone asks you, if you plan on having more kids, you'd take as many as god gave you. Did it -- As many as god gives me. It's still open for production. So with that being said, we just -- just got to stay tuned and see. Wow, I'm just blown away. Does everyone get along? Absolutely. Yeah. It's mandatory. We have no other way. Absolutely. Absolutely. I see a lot of smiles on their faces and I also see a dancer in the background. Thank you all, this has been so joyful to speak to you, and again, no complaints from any of us other moms and dads, thank you so much for being with us today. Thank you. They're so cute. Make sure to tune in to tlc to catch the premiere episode of "Doubling down the derricos,"
