All parents have to sit through the silly and sometimes very annoying shows our children watch. They are boring to watch and sometimes I can’t help but analyze them. For instance:
The show: Max and Ruby (their bunnies, they talk and wear clothes) It’s on Noggin/Nick Jr. This show is actually pretty cute.
Here is where the analyzing comes in:
Ruby is the big sister (pre-teen age), Max is the little brother (young child age). WHERE ARE THEIR PARENTS? They have a grandma they go to her house to visit, but parents are never mentioned. Ruby is not an adult, so it’s not as though she got emancipated and is taking care of her brother. I know she’s not an adult because there are Adult (bigger) bunnies that she babysits for. Why do they never mention the parents? Ruby is a bunny scout (Girl Scout) and she plays with dolls, she seems a little young to be taking care of her brother by herself. Max is a trouble making little bunny boy.
OK, see I’m kinda crazy now and I have seen this show too many times. PLEASE tell me I’m not the only one who does this.
There is another show with similar characters, older brother, and little sister. Charlie and Lola, I like this one. But they talk about their parents. The parents are there, you don’t actually “see” them but their there. There riding in the back of the car and the parents are driving, you only see the back of the car. Or one of them will leave the room to go tell mom. Get it….
OK, please tell me I’m not the only one. Sorry if this bored you, hopefully you’re at least laughing at me right now. Hey, I have to have something to keep me entertained. I’m a stay at home mom, remember….. And right now I don’t get to leave the house by myself. I’m with my kids 24-7. Maybe obsessing over missing parents on a cartoon show helps me keep my sanity.
