10-year-old Nicholas is embarrassed by his Mum's pregnancy and worried about losing his status as an only child. Then - horrors! - Mum finds out she's expecting twins and the whole family's lives are turned upside-down. What with their househunting, Dad practising nappy changing and finding out - with the help of a water-filled balloon - what it's like to walk round with a bump, time goes by. Soon Mum is in labour and Dad's car won't start...luckily there's a pizza delivery van ready to come to the rescue!
