Meet the Alpha Mums, headed by Amanda, very much the queen bee. Everything is organised, clean and sparkly – even the kitchen cork board is a statement of success. At the other end of the spectrum, we meet Liz, who is totally chaotic and feels the kids should enjoy free expression – if they want to do kamikaze jumps of the sofa, she drags a mattress round for safety. Somewhere between Amanda and Liz is Julia – she is organised – she has to be as she is a successful events organiser – but when her mother Marion decides she is no longer going to be the free child-sitter and school-run taxi, Julia finds her organisation skills are taxed and nowhere near the level of the Alpha Mums. Also in the mix is Kevin – he is the stay-at-home dad, who, rather than fighting against that, is embracing it with gusto – much to the irritation of the other mums.
