Six-year-old Karen mourns the death of a mouse (killed in a trap by her mouse-murdering parents), eight-year-old Ben stands for election as class rep - using tactics that would make a seasoned political operator blush - and older brother Jake triggers his Mum's she-tiger instincts by bringing a girl home for tea.

To make matters worse for the parents, they must grapple with money worries, unsettling chest pains, a supermum next door and a friend who is using them as a babysitting service. What can they do? And why is their daughter suddenly talking like Gordon Ramsay?
