The Adults

New boyfriend Patrick a seemingly eligible Iron Man in Waiting Matt brings the new love of his life Alex funny smart and extremely patient Scarlett their daughter brings her imaginary friend Posey He's a rabbit Together the five or six of them grit their teeth over Organized Fun activities drinking a little too much after bed time over.
