A blue-collar Chicago couple tries to raise their three kids responsibly and not lose sight of their own youthfulness. High school sweethearts, Bill and Judy Miller, have been married for 18 years.
Their intelligent teenage oldest daughter, Lauren thinks her parents are extremely lame. Their tense, bookish son, Brian, is just discovering girls and doesn’t know how to talk to them. While their youngest daughter, Tina, is just the innocent little kid, creating chaos with her imagination and pranks.
Adding to the chaos, Judy's unmarried sister, Linda, has constant run-ins with Bill.
But in it all, Bill likes to be the kids’ buddy rather than their dad and hangs out a lot with his friend, so Judy has to handle one more kid…
