Do you want to go in first?

I want to film their reaction.

Everybody, Pippa's here!

- Oh, Mummy.

- Is she staying here?

- Yes.

- New baby sister.

My dad used to think Pippa was

what finally completed the whole family.

He was like, "Seven colors of the rainbow,

seven wonders of the world..."

He just had it fixated in his head

that Pippa was lucky.

- Is she really at home?

- She's at home now, forever.

We are going to take care of you so much.

Happy birthday to you

Is there anything you want to say,

before I turn the camera off, Jamie?

- Well, I'd like to ask you something.

- Is there anything you'd like to say?

- Oh, that's good.

- Okay?

I like that. That's good initiative.

- Right.

- Right.

- I'm gonna ask you to...

- Let me see you on the screen, Jamie.

What I'm doing, Jamie,

is I've recorded you

on your fourth birthday,

fifth, sixth and now

your seventh tomorrow.

This is like a little diary for you

when you're older.

And I hope you'll be pleased with Daddy.

You look beautiful, sweetheart.

I love that this is my home

and I grew up here.

We are all so close.

Give us a nice smile,

Kacie.

Everyone's kind of weird.

There's no such thing as normal.

- Cheese.

- Cheese.

Mirie is the best twin ever.

So is Lorie,

but in a different way.

Oh, doesn't she look gorgeous.

We're a handful.

I admire Mum for sticking around

and not leaving us.

We genuinely have

the best family in the world.

Give us a smile.

You see programs,

it's one big happy family.

That's only on programs.

There's seven of you,

we live in a wonderful house...

have a wonderful time...

and you have all got a very bright future.

Hi, Lorie in the future,

Jamie in the future...

And everyone in the future.

I think

we're all so used to saying...

For six years,

we've been saying we're okay.

But there are some days

that I'm like, "It's not okay.

I'm not fine about what happened."

- Hello, Mummy.

- Hello, Daddy.

Oh.

Jamie, come here

with Daddy now, please.

Please. Quickly, 'cause he's driving up.

How about we have,

like, a ceremony?

- Around the caravan?

- No, but do you know what I mean...

- I didn't mean...

- I wasn't being sarcastic.

We could all make our peace with

the caravan and say goodbye to it nicely.

I personally feel as though we've all

moved on in our lives far enough,

that it can go.

- Don't you agree?

- The Atlas.

- The Atlas, darling.

- Mum, this is one of those,

"I'm only 13."

But it's just sitting there.

It's going to get to the point

where it'll just be completely derelict.

- Mum, can I suggest something?

- Yes, darling.

There was, um, this Buddhist idea

that if you imagine all your beloved

belongings being broken and gone,

when it actually goes, it's not as sad.

Because you've already accepted the fact

that it's broken.

Okay, that's not true.

So, why don't you imagine that it's gone,

imagine that tomorrow

they're taking it away,

and imagine it's gone,

and see if you can deal with that.

- I would personally feel like...

- Have you ever tried it?

I would feel like a weight had been

partially lifted off my shoulders

with the Atlas.

I know that sounds really bad,

but I used to look out there,

and if I saw all the lights on,

I'd be crapping myself.

I would feel like

we were giving up.

I'd feel like we'd be just accepting

that he's gone.

- And I just... Mum, stop...

- Do you not feel...

- Let me finish!

- Sorry.

You got to remember that

there's eight of us,

and we are all in different stages.

We're not moving forward together.

I do not feel that if we got rid of it,
