While Jenelle is trying to figure out how to pay for school, she breaks Barbara's rules again, and things get tough for Corey and Leah once she's stuck at home watching the girls full time. Adam moves in and Chelsea tries to keep it from her dad, and Kailyn starts school but has to figure out where she and Isaac should live when Jo's parents kick them out.


Leah thought moving in with Corey would make things easier but living an hour away from family and friends, and with Corey working all the time Leah is left minding the girls 24/7 and is exhausted and lonely.

Leah calls her friend and discusses how she is exhausted and discusses that she wants to go college to study nursing but she doesn't think she can do whilst taking care of two children basically on her own.

Leah hasn't seen her Mom and Step-dad in a while so she invites them over for a take-out. Whilst eating their food, they discuss Leah going to school and that both Leah and Corey will need to be doing their fair bit so Leah can study at School which means both doing night feeds and making sure the girls are taken care of, but her Mom suggests whilst Corey is working Leah should have to do the majority of the work, but Leah feels no one understands that she doesn't have really anytime for her to do anything else.

Leah meets up with her friend Regan who's in town visiting her family and they discuss Leah going school her friend Regan says she can't see herself being able to look after two children and go school at the same time, Leah thinks it's possible but Corey would need to help. Leah leaves Corey with the twins for the day, and she is anxious to see how Corey copes but hopes he realizes just what she has to deal with on a daily basis. Whilst Leah is out Corey rings her numerous times asking what to do, then what time was she going to be home as he didn't know what to do. With Corey struggling to look after the girls for a few hours, Leah is worried about how she can go to School and trust Corey to be able to manage looking after the girls alone but when Leah talks about it to Corey they can't discuss it without disagreeing and ending the conversation.


Chelsea and Megan are settling in to their new home, and they sit down and talk about Adam moving in and him having to change so they decide to write a checklist of things Adam must do, but Chelsea doesn't think telling her dad would be a good idea for now.

Chelsea is trying hard to study from home so she can go to beauty school but working from home and taking care of a child is proving too much.

Later that day Adam comes over and Chelsea gives Adam the list that her and Megan wrote up...

  • Adam must put Aubree and Chelsea first before his cars
  • Adam must make an effort to get along with Megan since they will be living together
  • Adam must get a job (but Adam informs Chelsea he works with his dad in contruction)
  • Adam must pay child support

Chelsea hopes she doesn't regret the decision of allowing Adam to move in with them.

The day arrives for Adam to move in and so far so good.


Chelsea is studying because the deadline for beauty school is coming up, Adam is trying to help out with Aubree so she can get on with her studying, her sister Emily pops down and she knows about Adam moving in, Chelsea just hopes she doesn't tell their dad.

Chelsea is avoiding her dad as she doesn't want to talk about school and she is worried someone may have told him about Adam moving in but she needs a break from Aubree and Adam takes Aubree to his parents house. Instead of studying though her and Megan go for a pamper day whilst they are out Randy ( Chelsea's dad) turns up but she isn't there and they arrive home to find his car parked up. When she gets in she is confronted by her dad saying he's been looking around and see's many things of Adams and asks whether he has moved in. Randy says it was in his rules no Adam to move in and he wants him to move out, Chelsea agrees to talk to Adam about chipping in.

Kailyn is going to School and straight to Work everyday and thankfully for Kailyn, Jo looks after Isaac whilst she is busy, when she arrives home there is a small argument over who does Laundry / Chores. Jo's parents are sick of the bikkering over the chores so tells them to sort out an agreement over who does what as the bikkering must stop and with Jo and Kailyn arguing more the atmosphere in the house is quite tense.

Since the argument over the laundry things between Kailyn and Jo are even worse, and it's causing problems with Janet and Eddie (Jo's Parents), with all the tention at home Kailyn is glad she can escape to school that is until she finishes and gets a phone call of Jo saying not to go back to the house because him and his dad ended up in a fight he's taking Isaac to his aunts house two hours away in Newark and Kailyn must find somewhere to stay for the night.

Kailyn managed to contact a friend to stay over when there she calls Jo to find out what happened and what Isaac was up too, Jo says his dad doesn't want him there and they must find an apartment but Jo's suggests finding one in Newark much to Kailyn's dissaproval.
