Zach and Alyssa's New Year's Resolutions


"I've got some really good goals this next year. I would like to grow at least three inches taller and three inches thinner."
-Zach Bates

"My New Year's resolution this year would just be to stay sane."
-Alyssa Bates Webster 
 
In anticipation of 2017, the Bates went on camera to discuss their New Year's resolutions. We shared Erin Bates Paine's a few days ago. She hopes to spend more time savoring the moment and enjoying life with her little family of four. Scroll down to listen to what Zach Bates, Whitney Bates, Alyssa Bates Webster, and John Webster have to say.

    1. No, she meant "sane", which is what Alyssa said.

    2. No, I think she meant sane. With a new baby coming and adjusting to having 2 could make you crazy.😄

    1. Wow! That was kind of harsh.

  4. I like that Alyssa has a more realistic perspective on having kids than most of the Bates and Duggar women, who just don't have a family plan and just can't wait to spend 30 years of their life having a huge number of children.
    Children are a joy, but it's right to acknowledge that it's a hard job and raising a family more complicated than just saying "children are a gift from the Lord".

  6. I didn't think Zach was all that short at all. I'm sure he's taller than I am. I'm 5'1" and all my family members including my hubby and daughters are taller than I.

    1. I'm sure he's not that tall either. He's barely taller than his wife, all the Bates are similar height, while all of the husbands of the Bates girls are significantly taller than them.
