Being a parent is a full-time job that comes with no vacation days. That might seem like a bit of an understatement for Karen and Deon Derrico who have 14 children together. The Derricos as a large family, to say the least, but both Karen and Deon are devoted parents who focus on their children's wellbeing above all else.

But that being said, they can definitely use all the helping hands they can get. With their friend Erik being an honorary Derrico and having GG around, it certainly eases the burden on them. However, things might change soon, with Karen planning the big South Carolina family move.

While the Derricos decided to go to South Carolina to spend time with Karen's family, she hoped that the trip would prove a good chance to show Deon and GG just how good it would be to live there instead of Las Vegas. Karen hopes to have a bigger home, and seeing that their family is still growing, with baby no 15 on the way, they can certainly use all the space they can get. However, the couple also wants GG to move with them, seeing that all the children are extremely close to her.


Deon, too, is worried about leaving his mother behind, seeing that he views it as his responsibility to care for her. And with her recent health scare, he is all the more apprehensive about leaving her behind. However, GG has no intention of uprooting her life and moving. While she hasn't outrightly stopped the family from making their own decision, she is firm when it comes to her choice to stay back. But Karen hasn't lost hope just and is using the family vacation to South Carolina as a way to convince her mother-in-law.

In the episode preview, Karen admits that she has her work cut out, seeing that it's one country girl against two city people. However, she is not giving up just yet. After meeting with resistance from GG, Karen tells her that she's learned that sometimes, you've to let things happen naturally. She mentions that she'll let GG come around to the idea on her own, which GG agrees is a good idea, only to add that she'll see 'how long that takes'. 

It looks like GG has no intention of moving come hell or high water. What do you think? Is Karen fighting a losing battle? Sound off below! 

Season 3 of 'Doubling Down With the Derricos' airs on TLC on Tuesdays at 10 pm ET.
