The Hammond family of Brooklyn Park, Minnesota is an active, feisty family of four who are always on the go!
Tim, the father, is your classic laidback dad. *He enjoys sitting back and watching his wife try to control the chaos that ensues in the household on a daily basis. *He is a supportive father who wants his kids to be the best that they can be. *He is a loving husband who allows his wife to take the reins in disciplining and organizing the family. *He is cool and collected and takes life as it comes, and living with this family, life certainly comes at him hard and fast.
A first impression of Mia might have you thinking she lives a perfect life with perfect children and a perfect husband. *And that is precisely what she wants you to think. *The reality is her husband is always getting on her nerves and her children whine and cry about anything and everything. *Mia wants desperately to have a normal, all American family, but no matter how hard she organizes, controls and disciplines her entire family, they will not stop the dysfunction. *But that does not stop her keeping a tight leash on everything. *She bickers constantly with Tim, allowing everything he does to bother her. *She coddles her children to the point of spoiling and then fights with them when they throw tantrums over not being able to go to Build a Bear for the 3rd time that week. *Mia is wound so tightly that she wonders how she hasn’t snapped yet.
Bria and Caleb are two very adorable children who both have a strong sense of self and even stronger vocal chords! *Bria is a beautiful young diva. *An aspiring actress/doctor, she is given every opportunity to develop her skills on stage. *She attends a private performing arts school and is allowed to be as boisterous and entertaining as she wants to be at home. *Caleb is a quiet boy at first, but will open up quickly at the mention of “Build a Bear”, his favorite store and hobby. *Into skateboarding and goofing off with his dad, Caleb is a sweet kid with a sensitive heart. *Both kids are tantrum time bombs, however, and Mom and Dad admit to spoiling them. *They may live in a house with a controlling, neat freak mom, but they know how to use their tears to get what they want!
The Hammond’s are excited to be a part of Trading Spouses and are looking forward to finding out how a new Mom will handle their hectic lifestyle!
