Despite knowing that her days with Todd and Julie Chrisley are numbered, Lindsie Chrisley opted to spend the holidays away from her parents.

Explaining that Todd, 53, and Julie, 49, "needed time to process" their next several years behind bars, Lindsie emphasized: "I wanted to be able to give them that time and very much struggled with giving up spending the time with my parents and having to make a decision as a mother over a daughter like that was a very difficult thing."

The 33-year-old candidly added that her young son's behavior also played a role in the decision, pointing out that he is far from mellow.

Comparing her niece Chloe to her own offspring, she said, "Jackson wakes up, it's like a tornado comes through the house, from the time that he literally wakes up until the time that he goes to bed."
