The Real Reason One Of The OutDaughtered Quints Has Her Own Bedroom

The adorable Busby quints from TLC's "OutDaughtered" have always spent lots of time together. From the day they were born into this world, Olivia Marie, Ava Lane, Hazel Grace, Parker Kate, and Riley Paige have played together, gone to school with one another, and explored the world along with their parents, Danielle and Adam Busby, and older sister Blayke. It appears that one of the quints has moved ahead just a bit quicker than her sisters, both socially and emotionally, leading her parents to come up with a different way to deal with her needs.

Danielle and Adam have tried to tailor their parenting to suit the needs of all their girls, but with each one experiencing a different level of maturity, they are challenged every day. When it came to the girls sharing rooms after the Busbys moved into a rental home after their original abode had a mold problem, they realized that one of their girls needed more space than the others for one specific reason. 

This is the real reason one of the quints has her own bedroom

Riley was often on a different sleep schedule than the rest of her sisters. This led Adam and Danielle to make the tough decision to allow the little girl to have her own room, while her sisters shared sleeping quarters. Fans couldn't understand why Riley was allowed to have her own room when the only other daughter to have her own personal space was the quints' older sister, Blayke. The family addressed the issue on-camera and explained that Riley was given her own room because she woke up earlier than her sisters. When she shared a room with her siblings, she would disturb her sisters while they slept. This led to a bunch of cranky little girls throughout the day (via Distractify). This was why Danielle and Adam decided their daughter needed her own space in order to entertain herself until the rest of the family awoke.

Riley continues to be the most independent of the quints. She jumped a grade ahead while her sisters remained in preschool, though they later all started kindergarten at a public school together (via CheatSheet). Her mother, Danielle, takes Riley's accomplishments in stride but says that her headstrong personality can be a bit too much to take at times, calling her "the naughty one" (via People). "She does have a sweet, cuddly side to her. She wants to do good, but her personality just kind of gets in the way," admitted Danielle of her daughter.

Riley has always been the rowdy one

According to her TLC profile, "Riley was the 4th baby born and has always been the rowdy one. She is the first to greet strangers and always wants to wander around and explore. Riley loves sweets the most. She is a little drama queen and knows how to manipulate everyone around her to get what she wants."

Her adventurous personality got the little girl in a heap of trouble earlier this year. Adam shared a photo to Instagram of doctors helping Riley after she slipped in the bathroom. He also added a video where Riley showed her bravery as doctors put a staple in the back of her head to hold her wound shut. "Well, I'm done with doctors' offices today... Riley just couldn't let us end the day without a little extra excitement," Adam wrote on Instagram. "This is what happens when you want to dance on the bathroom floor as your sisters are getting in and out of the tub. One staple for Riley! She was a trooper though."

After getting her own room, Riley started having trouble sleeping

After being separated from her sisters at night, Riley began to have difficulties sleeping. She awoke with nightmares and ran to her sisters' rooms for comfort and to sleep with them in their beds (via Distractify). This went on night after night until Danielle and Adam stepped in to try and get to the bottom of Riley's new habit, but their questions only made the headstrong little girl even more upset.

It wasn't until her older sister Blayke stepped in, sat her younger sister down, and asked her why she was suddenly afraid to sleep alone. Riley told her big sister that it was because she had seen a scary show on television and it frightened her. Blayke explained to Riley that she understood her fears and that the dark could be frightening because it appears like something is there when it's not. Blayke told her little sister it was just her imagination and came up with an idea that appeared to work. She suggested that Riley leave her bathroom light on so she could still see. Big sister Blayke also advised Riley that she would regret not having her own space when she was a few years older and wanted some privacy — something her other sisters would not have (via TV Shows Ace). Riley agreed and soon began staying in her room through the night, marking another milestone for the family.
