Max & Ruby {The Story Of An Autistic Boy & A Condescending Bitch}

     I'm saying it! Out loud! Max has autism, Ruby treats him like crap, & I'm pretty sure Mom & Dad are either dead or in rehab!  The show came on in 2002 & that makes Max 9 going on 10 this year at the least. He isn't in therapy but she has time for bunny scouts!?! Come on, the kids is almost non-verbal! Don't you ever let it slip what town you live in Ruby or I'll call DHS on you so fast it will make your whiskers spin!

     We had a birthday party for my youngest two. Their birthday's fall a little over a week apart so we combine them. This year was all about Peter Pan & Ghostbusters!

An Odd Mix But So Are We!!
     Between the fact that we have a pretty good size family & that Zion stole a stack of invitations off the kitchen table stuffing them in his book bag to hand them out to everyone! When he didn't have enough for every single kid in class his teach made copies & handed more out!! Needless to say our car was, just as planned by the two of them I'm sure, loaded down with presents on the way home.
     All the chaos not only equaled a car full of gifts & a massive bill from the pizza place but it also equaled one way overstimmulated aspie! While I was on pizza serving duty my wife snapped a quick pic that I wanted to share with you. Shortly after it was taken I took him to the side, stood behind him while we watched everyone party with my arm around him, I sqeezed just a bit to hold him steady & he slowly calmed down. I thought I would share the pic though. Thanks for reading!

P.S. I'm in a black fleece in the foreground! My biggest fear is never showing you the photos & talking about our life...It's the fear that you will assume that my little brother is me holding the phone next to Jayden & you will think I'm chubby! See, we all have our neuroses at time!


  1. I hate Max and Ruby!!!! But you guys rock!

  2. Awww poor Jayden. Good dad for calming him down! Also, Max and Ruby is the worst show in history. I wanna punch that little bitch every time I hear her say "No, Max!"

  3. LMAO about Ruby!

    Looks like the party was a hit, despite the setback.

  5. I'm so glad someone agrees with me on Ruby. I feel like the only thing my daughter learns from her is how to treat people poorly.

  6. I have aspergers and i'm kinda offended by this
    1. I love Max & Ruby, It's a guilty pleasure
    2. The parents have been absent in the source material (the books)
    3. Rosemary Wells intended the series (books and cartoons) to focus on the relationship of both Max (the little brother) and Ruby (the big sister)
    4. There's no indication that Max has autism or any mental disorder of anykind, Max is 3 years old - he's probably isn't capable of full vocabulary yet
    5. I'm tired of the typical gripes toward the 2 bunnies, It's basically people over analyzing and becoming bitter people (like the people whom still refuse to forgive Schumacher for "Batman and Robin")

    The idea of bashing a show over such ridiculous nitpicks pisses me off
    You want a show to piss on? Go after Dora The Explorer - her show is an insult to our intelligence (young AND old)

    Let Max & Ruby Be!
