Crosby Baverman is 32 years-old at the start of the series. He is unmarried, and the third Child and second son of the Baverman family.

Unexpectedly, his former girlfriend Jasmine Trussell, introduces Crosby to his five year-old son, Jabbar. At first, Crosby doesn't know how to act around his son, but still continues to see him.

While at a yoga class with Jabbar, Crosby meets another single parent, and she offers to have Jabbar over for a play date. The woman gained money from her husband's unfaithfulness, and they have a very big home. They continue to have play dates and one day, she tries to "Go further" with Crosby, but this leads to him stopping her and taking Jabbar home.

Crosby and Jasmine begin to rekindle their relationship, but keep it a secret from Jabbar, in case things don't work out. In the Season 1 finale, Jasmine announces that she has been offered a dancing job in New York City. She and Jabbar move there, leaving Crosby behind.

Season 2 Edit

Though her and Crosby's relationship is flourishing, Jasmine gets offered a job in Europe and leaves Jabbar with her mom, Renee Trussell. She is a very old fashioned woman and at first doesn't take to Crosby because her husband left her with 2 kids, but Crosby assures Renee that he is here to stay.

Jasmine comes back from Europe and decides to only take local jobs so she can stay close to Jabbar. In the Halloween episode, Crosby proposes to Jasmine, and she says yes. In the next one, they tell the family. But Crosby soon learns, through complete changes of the wedding, that Jasmine is very controlling. He confronts her about it and it turns into a huge fight. Crosby returns to the boat house and tries to drink his pain away. The next day, Jasmine explains that she thinks that they may have just been together for Jabbar and need to spend some time apart. A couple days later, while at Max's birthday party, Crosby sees Max's behavioral aid Gaby, a friend. At the end of the episode, Crosby is seen sleeping with Gaby.

In the next episode his guilt starts to kick in. He tells Jasmine within the next few days, and their fight gets even worse. Gabby, while at Adam and Kristina's house, overhears Jasmine explaining to Kristina that Crosby cheated. Gabby feels guilty and quits immediately, leaving Kristina and Adam in need of and new behavioral aid and furious at Crosby.
