Six-year-old Justin Chase wants a mom more than anything in the world. He has the perfect candidate picked out -- his first-grade teacher. All he has to do is convince his dad and his teacher that they belong together. Single father Dave Chase has his hands full trying to run his software business and take care of his son. When Justin gets into trouble at school, Dave is determined to find out why. In the first-grade classroom, he meets Katie McGuire. Katie believes in happily-ever-afters. When Dave Chase shows up, she thinks maybe she has found her Prince Charming. Dave knows that happily-ever-afters are only found in books. He's been burned once before. He doesn't intend on making the same mistake again. Katie loves both Dave and Justin. Can she convince Dave to let go of the past and look to the future?
