'Sweet Home Sextuplets': Eric worries about losing his business due to Covid-19 and being hit financially
Ever since the US announced the lockdown due to Covid-19 spreading rapidly, the Waldrop family has been planning on how they can ensure their lives are not changed drastically
Eric and Courtney Waldrop have been having a hard time wrapping their heads around how coronavirus will affect their family. Ever since the US announced the lockdown due to Covid-19 spreading rapidly, the Waldrop family has been planning on how they can ensure their lives are not changed drastically.
One of the first signs that the Waldrop family saw of Covid-19 affecting their family was noticing how all the milk, diapers, baby wipes, and other things were wiped off the shelves. With six babies, Courtney and Eric knew how important it was to have baby supplies. However, they were shocked to find that none of the things they wanted were available.
Their worst fears came to life when Courtney realized even her father's store did not have any supplies left. Due to this, she had to seek help on social media as she requested people if they would be able to give a few baby diapers and baby wipes for their children.
Luckily, the Waldrops had a loving community who was willing to step forward to help a family in need. They managed to get a good number of diapers, but Eric and Courtney knew their problems were far from over. Eric wondered how his business would be affected. Working in the landscaping business, Eric revealed it was a luxury and there were chances people may not be willing to spend on it.
Courtney admitted it could be hard for a family of 11. To make sure they had everything planned, the pair decided to meet a financial planner to see what they could do to ensure they are financially safe. The financial planner advised them to make sure they have a couple of months saving kept aside that they could use for their family.
With nine children, Courtney admitted that their expenditure was high. After hearing from the financial planner, the pair decided to focus on how they could save money. Luckily, after a couple of weeks, the pair got the news that the government had announced their landscaping business as an essential one. Eric was happy that they could continue working and keep others employed.
