The Bringing Up Bates family is reflecting on the past in an upcoming episode. As TV Shows Ace reports, the new episode also features a peek into Nathan Bates’ blossoming relationship. Take a peek at what’s to come for the Bates family.
Bringing Up Bates family celebrates Kelly Jo’s birthday
The episode includes Kelly’s birthday, which was in October. The family gathered together to celebrate their mom. Surprisingly, it looks like nearly everyone was able to make it to the celebration, which isn’t an easy task for a family this big. They planned the birthday party ahead of Kelly’s surgery. During her party, they took a moment to pray for her safety.
Now, another sneak peek shows something very special that happened at the party. The Bates kids came together to plan a heartwarming activity.
Kids share their favorite memories
One way the family decided to celebrate Kelly’s birthday is by sharing their favorite memories. In a confessional, Carlin Bates says, “Michaela came up with the sweetest idea to kinda almost remember memories that we have about Mom and go back and almost take us to our childhood instead of doing praises. Just ’cause we felt like maybe it’ll be a little bit shorter than like all night of her praising us instead of us getting to praise her. So it was a really sweet idea.”
In the clip, Michaela points out that there are all different groups of kids at the party – married, older, middle, and little kids. So, all of the memories the kids are sharing are going to be unique.
Zach Bates kicks things off by saying that he’s the only Bates kid who was able to be an only child. Of course, his family argues that he wasn’t an only child for too long before the next little one came along. Then, Zach says, “Well, I was such a good kid my mom tried 18 more times, unsuccessfully, to replicate me.”
The rest of the kids get to share their favorite memories in the episode, so be sure to tune in so you don’t miss it.
