12 Photos That Prove Chip and Joanna Gaines Have Parenting Down Pat

Posted on

THEY HAVE DANCE PARTIES

Fixer Upper's Joanna Gaines — who just welcomed her fifth child with husband Chip — makes time for each of her kids. Case in point? A "late night dance party" with daughter Emmie Kay, set to the music of La La Land.

THEY STOP AND SMELL THE FLOWERS

"A bouquet of zinnias to celebrate the weekend ❤️," Joanna wrote in August next to a snap of two of her children picking flowers.

THEY KNOW BONDING COMES BEFORE BEDTIME

"Ok fine... ten more minutes. #bedtime #brothers #buildingstuff," Joanna captioned a sweet September moment between sons Duke and Drake.

THEY EMBRACE INDIVIDUALITY

"I like Saturdays  ❤️  #restandrobots #emmielou," read the text alongside a July photo of Emmie dressed in her handmade robot outfit.

THEY KNOW ONE-ON-ONE TIME IS IMPORTANT

Ella Rose is all about helping her parents — just like in this March photo, when she served as Joanna's "super special design assistant" in the kitchen!

THEY INSPIRE CREATIVITY

Ella's creativity extends to paint projects, too! The couple's older daughter had fun mixing colors in a November 2016 photo. "She created all of these colors from scratch today! My little design bud at work 😍 #teamella," Joanna wrote.

THEY KNOW THERE'S ALWAYS TIME TO CUDDLE

"I dreamed I was being attacked by a sweet smelling koala bear and then I woke up ... #phew #emmielou #illtakethisalldayeveryday ❤️🐨," the mom-of-five captioned a touching moment between herself and Emmie.

THEY KNOW PETS ARE FAMILY TOO

The Waco, Texas-based couple have a love for animals that fully extends to their children. "A boy and his dog. #dukeman #rover," Joanna wrote to accompany a photo capturing a tender embrace between her younger son and their pup.

THEY LOVE NATURE

Speaking of being one with all creatures, the spouses' daughters were too cute hanging out in the great outdoors with a cat and two deer in this September 2016 photo. "They're all a bit curious 😍," Joanna captioned the image.

THEY HAVE A LAUNDRY SYSTEM

"Unpacking & loads of laundry both have a way of bringing things back to reality after a fun family vacation ⛱ 😎#homesweethomethough," Joanna captioned a too-real moment in March.

THEY'RE EXPERT TEETH-PULLERS

"Emmie loves when he makes her wiggly tooth even wigglier," Joanna explained with a photo of Chip helping their youngest child pull a loose tooth. "I love how tough she is and that she trusts her dad even though losing a tooth can be a bit scary. #toothfairyneedstoruntotheatm #thatsmilethough ❤️," added the proud mom and wife.

THEY KNOW FAMILY IS ALWAYS FIRST

"The best birthday surprise was waking up to the most amazing bkfst and a room full of all my favorite superheroes," wrote Joanna to caption a 2016 photo of her family sporting Spider-Man, Iron Man, Captain America and more masks at the table.
