    No he’s not husky51, he’s being a normal kid.

    Interesting how females always go so gaga over infants until they get one of their own, then they can’t wait to foist the brat off onto somebody else… is this some sort of Buyer’s Remorse?

    Apparently you haven’t been following the strip for the last few years. He’s not normal. He may be one of the most unpleasant kids in all of comicdom.

    Yes, knocking down blocks is probably done by 100% of kids of a certain age who are able to, unless they have been brutalized out of it. Maybe 110%

    Why are you lumping all females together? I adore kids, just don’t want any of my own. And what’s wrong with a little time with the hubby, one on one without kids? You seem a bit bitter over the subject.

    Max is not old enough to generate that ideas of what the coincidental consequences of his actions will/could be. And Yes, knocking down the tower is perfectly normal for his age and older – it was his tower to knock down. Luci did not build it; she can’t even stand.

    Judgmental much? After spending hours on end for weeks with an infant, anyone would want an occasional break.

    Not too judgmental. My mother locked my brother and I out of the house soon after giving birth to us.

    he ought to be, Wally and Joan have been married longer than Max’s ‘age’, and Max is from her previous relationship.
