OutDaughtered: The real reason one of the quints is skipping pre-K

Even the biggest fans of TLC’s OutDaughtered probably have trouble telling the quints apart. Riley, Ava, Olivia, Hazel, and Parker are adorable, to be sure, but they also look an awful lot alike. They are, of course, unique individuals and their parents, Danielle and Adam Busby, have reminded us time and again that they all have their own personalities. That’s why it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that one of the quints is skipping a grade and starting kindergarten early. The Busbys posted a picture of the quints with their big sister, Blayke, on Instagram on August 19, showing the quints, all wearing matching dresses, headed to their first day of school. 

“First day of school!” reads the caption. “Blayke 3rd grade. Riley kindergarten. Ava, Olivia, Hazel, and Parker upper rotation Pre-K. Let your light shine bright girls!”

Danielle previously revealed that Riley has a big personality and is always getting into trouble. “Though Riley is usually the naughty one, she really does have a sweet, cuddly side to her,” Danielle said on an episode of OutDaughtered (via People). “She wants to do good, but her personality just kind of gets in the way.”

In June, we saw the quints take a preschool test on OutDaughtered. The average score on the test is a 40. Riley scored much higher than average,  earning an “unusual” 84 on the exam. “I’m starting to wonder if she’s bored, and if that’s why she always acts up,” said Danielle after getting the test results. 

Splitting up the siblings might seem mean, but it looks like Riley is ready for more of a challenge and her parents don’t want to hold her back. Of course the critics came out in force upon learning of the decision, and Adam responded to them in the comments of the Instagram photo. “It was a learning experience for us and it’s been positive since we chose to separate them,” he said. “There ain’t a manual for raising quints… We are making the best decision that we can with the information and intuition that we have as their parents.”
