The holidays won’t be the same this year for the Roloff family, and it’s not just because it’s their first holiday with grandchildren.
With Matt and Amy dating other people, the family has to plan how they’re going to celebrate the holidays with each parent on separate days, which is something the kids are having trouble getting used to.
In an exclusive clip from tonight’s episode, Zach shares that although the family “had tons of nice Christmases and fun Christmas memories and everything like that” growing up, it’s weird now that his parents are divorced.
“Now my parents are dating other people, so we have to make these plans and like, go to each other’s houses,” he says. “Like I just remember my friends growing up, friends that had divorced parents, and they would do that and I just thought it was the strangest thing.”
“Honestly, I don’t know how I could have dealt with this as a child,” he added.
“We would all prefer to be a big happy family and just do one Christmas, but to try to force it to be this big happy thing that’s okay, would be ignoring the nature of what it is,” Jeremy says in the clip.
Matt is also pretty keen on spending as much time together as possible, but Amy is less excited about the idea.
“We’re divorced, so I do not have to be best friends with Matt or Caryn. In fact, I don’t even have to be friends with them,” she says in the slip. “But I try to be respectful for the sake of my kids.”
