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
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
THEY LOVE NATURE
THEY HAVE A LAUNDRY SYSTEM
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.
