Meet the Wiessmeyer Family!
The Wiessmeyer family is from Weymouth, MA. Together, Ed and Laura run the family lobster boat part time. When the cold weather comes, Ed ships out to sea on his "real job", in the merchant marine for months on end, leaving Laura to care for their three children, Eric, Lauren and Kurt.
Laura also spends her days working as a part time house cleaner for the well- to- do. But, that never takes away from her own housekeeping. Laura loves to keep busy. Between working, cooking, cleaning and keeping up with kids activities, she never has a moment to spare.
Working together has made the Wiessmeyer family extremely close. The family has a great sense of humor, and they are quick to crack jokes about everything and anything including their life style. They are well aware their way of life may seem tough, but for the Wiessmeyer's, the smell of lobster bait is something you get used to, and it helps pay the bills.
Meet the Kahn-Robson Family!
The Kahn-Robson family of Boulder, CO is a family formed through remarriage. Michael is stepfather to Natalie and Vanessa, Wendy’s two daughters. Wendy and Michael's difference in culture, age and upbringing make for some interesting dynamics in their home. They tend to agree on the big things, but their styles are very different.
Wendy and Michael love to figure out new ways to have wild fun outside with the family whether it's running through the open fire hydrant in the park or snowy moonlight hikes in the mountains with headlamps. Michael, a former pro-biker from Australia, has an acerbic wit and style that sometimes makes Wendy cringe. She's a real estate agent and is used to being agreeable and easy to get along with. That's part of her job as a sales person. She loves his outrageous sense of humor.
She is often afraid people won't understand his no holds barred honesty. Surprisingly, they usually do! Wendy is also a real believer in women supporting women. She has a group of friends that she spends time with regularly and they have a great support system. Wendy likes to call it the "girlfriend mafia."
