Back to School

After a disastrous attempt to get her kids ready for the first day of school, Frankie devises a plan to stay on top of her kids’ schedules in order to better organize their lives. But things go from bad to worse when Frankie – aided by a reluctant Mike — tries to be pre-emptive and explains Brick’s eccentric quirks to his new, no nonsense teacher, Ms. Rinsky (Doris Roberts), and gets accused of being over protective. Meanwhile, Sue is so enthusiastic about being on the school’s cross-country team that she wears a heavy sweatshirt touting her team spirit in 80 degree heat, and Axl’s body clock gets thrown for a loop when Frankie begins waking him up for school with an alarm clock.

Crunchy leaves…hayrides…and most importantly, homecoming.” Since Axl made the varsity football team, Frankie gets to escort him onto the field before the big homecoming game. They haven’t had a lot of mother-son moments lately, so this one will be extra-special. She’ll be able to kiss Axl on the cheek knowing that he won’t wipe it off in front of a crowd.
