The latest new episode of 19 Kids & Counting aired last night on TLC and the show featured Anna and Josh Duggar’s adjustment to home life with two babies and Jim Bob’s allergy issues. Fans love these “at-home” episodes because they provide an inside look at the everyday life of America’s favorite super-sized family.
Adjustments for Anna and Josh Duggar:
Josh Duggar’s car business continues to be a success, especially since the opening of his second car lot, Integrity AutoPark. After months and months of wrangling with local licensing issues, the former Taco restaurant is finally open. Josh Duggar is busier than ever and talked about his two car lots…
Business is really good. We’ve really been blessed. It’s a lot of adjustment to go out and expand a business, especially when a lot of people are closing their doors right now. We stepped up and did it and we’re taking it day by day.
Despite the opening of his second business, Josh has adjusted his work schedule to spend more time at home with Anna, Mackynzie and new baby, Michael James. Concerning his role of father and teacher, Josh said last night…
Each moment as a parent, you learn that the best classroom is life.
On the home front, Anna Duggar is adjusting to a new reality of raising two children. “Everything is done twice now,” she stated. Mother-in-law Michelle Duggar is very pleased with Anna’s parenting skills and praised her daughter-in-law by saying…
Anna has done a fabulous job. I see her rising to the call of being a wonderful mommy.
Jim Bob Duggar celebrates his 45th birthday:
On last night’s episode of 19 Kids & Counting, Jim Bob celebrated his 45th birthday with a trip to the allergist. Michelle explained that her husband has struggled with allergies throughout his life, often suffering from allergy-induced headaches. The two went to see allergist Martha Hudson, MD, despite Jim Bob’s lifelong fear of needles. After several rounds of painful pricks, the physician determined that Jim Bob has a high allergy to mold, dust and a few varieties of trees. A nasal spray was prescribed for Jim Bob’s drainage issues.
Concerning his birthday, Jim Bob said…
I never would have dreamed at 46 I’d have nineteen children and two grandchildren. I have the most blessed family in the world.
His children agree. When asked what they love most about their dad, Johanna said, “He tickles us.” Jackson replied, “He plays with us and a bunch of stuff.”
