Lily storms home to her mother one day, demanding a real family. It’s Family Fun Night at school, and she’s positive they’ll be the weirdest family there. Her single-parent mom doesn’t seem overly fazed, reminding her daughter that they are a “small kind” of family, but real nonetheless. Lily isn’t convinced. She seeks refuge in the noise and pillow fights of her friend Melissa’s crowded house until it’s time for the school event, where, surprise! it turns out her little family isn’t unusual at all.
