I must confess.
I was never a Max & Ruby fan.
Just wasn't my speed, I guess.
Connor, however, is addicted.
Our library has exactly two Max and Ruby videos
When he returns one, he gets the other.
When he returns the other, he gets the first one.
It's a vicious cycle.
Vicious, I tell you.
So now that I have listened to Max and Ruby more times than any human being should be subjected to, I have a very important question.
It's been on my mind constantly for weeks, so I just have to share it.
Where are their parents??
Ruby is 7 years old. Max is what... 3? 4? Sure, they have a Grandmother that comes to tea parties, but come on, people. That's not adult supervision. They never even mention their parents. Do they exist? Did they die? Are they at work? I just don't know!
And that's not my whole dilemma. The other half of it is this:
Max is a bad influence for Connor.
Yep, I said it. A bad influence.
Last week all he wanted to do was plant cucumbers.
And weed the (non-existent) garden.
This morning he needed the shovel so he could make a worm cake.
What is children's entertainment coming to these days?
