    When big brother does it like that it is scary to younger sibling. Shame on you kid.

    Max really isn’t old enough to be made responsible for a baby. Or to be shamed when he fails it.

    If I were Joan I would be extremely worried that he isn’t talking yet.

    Is this the first one from Max’s point of view?

    Why doesn’t she give him a little guidance on how to play with his sister?

    How about a game of Patty-Cake?

    you can see that the baby clearly loves her bother and she is saying her version of bubba. I have a grand daughter that is 10 years younger than her brother and I know he loved sitting and playing with her when she was small. She is 8 now and he is 19 so not so much anymore but they still have their moments.

    No, he’s had “inner thoughts” for quite the while.

    Max hasn’t learned that he isn’t the “baby” anymore. It’s kind of like payback. Alix was sent to play in the sandbox with Max once. He was throwing sand on her and when she did it back (much smaller scale, more like a flick) he cried and got her in trouble with her Aunt. “Alix, you should know better. He’s just a baby!” To which Alix thinks something like “you can’t win with a two year old.”

    Can you say Autism?

    The more I see Max, the more I am convinced that he is not a bad kid, he is Autistic. Does Jan have an Autistic kid in mind for Max?

    The characters don’t seem to be aging very quickly, and the girls are still in the same grades they’ve been since I started reading. Thus, Max’s lack of speech isn’t a problem. He does speak when the story needs him to.
