"Daddy Duggar's Birthday" Recap

On tonight's episode of "19 Kids and Counting," Daddy Duggar's Birthday...
  • Josh's second car lot (previously a taco restaurant) is up and running! The oldest Duggar is especially proud of the 16-camera security system that he recently installed.
  • For the first time since Michael's birth, Anna loads both children into the car and heads to the supermarket.
  • "Anna, she has just done a fabulous job, and I see her rising to the call to be that wonderful mommy that she is," Michelle praises her daughter-in-law. 
  • Back home, Mackynzie is thrilled to put on her zebra apron and help prepare dinner--steak, potatoes, biscuits, and veggies. 
  • After work, Josh opens his new grill. "I'm not big on directions," he explains, while assembling the appliance. "In this project, if something blows up, you've got it right!"
  • He and Mackynzie head outside to cook the steak. And it wouldn't be a barbecue without Josh's special seasoning, a recipe that he created as a kid. Even Anna doesn't know his secret! "Maybe I'll sell it someday," jokes the budding chef. "We could go out of the car business and go into the seasoning business." 
  • Michelle accompanies Jim Bob to the allergist for his 46th birthday present. Jim Bob experiences a round of shots that could make a grown man cry. On a scale of one to ten, he rates the pain at a nine. "I recommend this birthday gift for everyone," he says, chuckling.
  • For his birthday dinner, the Duggar daddy takes the entire family out to Acambaro, a nearby Mexican restaurant. While everyone enjoys their food, he makes an announcement: "A year from now, you won't even recognize me...after tonight I'm going to start my diet." "Always tomorrow!" an anonymous Duggar remarks.
Have you ever been to the allergist and been subject to their "delightful" tests? Can you feel Jim Bob's pain?


  1. When I was a kid I went for allergy testing and then every Saturday morning I had 2 allergy shots 1 in each arm. So I know the pain that Jim Bob went thru it's not fun.

  2. I had the needle pricks done on both arms a couple of times to determine what I was allergic to - ugh! i understand that now some allergies can be found in a simple blood test - love that!

  3. It was Amy who said "always tomorrow"

    With Love,

  4. Never have I had an allergy test, but I did have my tonsils taken out at the age of 40. That was just 4 weeks ago. Never would I wish this on anyone!

  5. Ya i heard her voice when she said that.

  6. The duggers family does a good job with there kids I love there shows and the one has a car lot they are will good patents to I just love there shows

  7. Yes, allergy testing and shots for many years. Not fun.

  8. When I was a teen, I took allergy shots every week. The doc always said: Now, you still can't eat these foods.
    So, when I got married, I reasoned: If I still can't eat what I'm allergic to, why don't I just do that for free, instead of paying all this money just to keep right on avoiding the foods.
    We've had a lot more spending money since then. :D

  9. No, my insurance doesn't pay for allergy shots. Hope they helped.
