Grandmother or Grand Mother?

 Erin (Bates) Paine, Kelly Bates, and Alyssa (Bates) Webster

What is it like to be a grandmother while having 15 children still living at home, 11 of whom are under the age of 18? Kelly Bates says she is torn between time spent with her grandkids and her own children (two videos below).

But according to Erin (Bates) Paine, Gil and Kelly still manage to "spoil all the grandchildren rotten." Alyssa (Bates) Webster adds that her parents also tend to treat their youngest ones like they treat the grandkids.

  1. I enjoy your show very much. You and Gil great role models!

  2. I completely agree! You are such a sweet family & I pray God's richest blessings over you in this New Year 🎉

  3. Kelly Bates seems like such a wonderful mom and grandma and just such a genuinely sweet woman. I'm much older than Kelly yet I look up to her example in many ways and truly admire her and her lovely family.

  4. I just love Kelly!!! I would love to have a mother like her and grandma for my kids. She's just precious and deserves Gods very best. Such a true example of a Proverbs 31 woman!!
