However, it is dad Eric Waldrop that keeps the chaos under control during a family dinner outing. Following a recent basketball game for the older boys, coach Eric and dad pauses before entering the restaurant to give his family team a pep talk before entering. Eric gathers the sextuplets in a huddle and tells them, “I’m not telling you not to be happy…But don’t be too happy. Calm down.”
