Any thoughts yet (or at least ones you feel like sharing) about how his future? LIke, how will he be around the year 2024 or so?
I haven't decided anything very major for Max yet, but I guess he won't have either at 19/20 years old. I do know that he won't go to college and he'll want to do something sport-related for a living - he's always going to be a bit of a health freak, like his parents. (It's so tempting to have him playing professional tennis when he grows up, but I really don't think I should.)
More generally, taking into account how he's started out, he'll be able to get over those developmental problems and pretty much catch up with other kids his age by the time he starts school. He'll always be a C/D student, until it comes to sports (sort of like Oscar and the music, really), and he will always be a bit flakey even after he's got the hang of picking up what's going around him. As well as the athleticism, he'll be picking up from his parents a tendency not to take things seriously. And he's a clingy child at the moment - when he's older, obviously he'll become more independent, but he'll still be quite family-orientated.
Actually I've got a little scenario in my mind involving Max and Rose, probably around the time in question (assume nothing), that I'll try to get written up someday soon - that should give us a bit more of an idea.
Anyway, as far a Max goes (I always want to call him Max- A- Million, do other peole call him that, is it like his sports nickname?
Noooo... Well, they had a little joke that they were going to change - well - extend his name to Maximillian Miller (I think Jo had the bright idea of sticking Milton in the middle as well), but it didn't happen.
Many kids go through a phase where they only eat one type of food, does he ever go through that?
Never. As a child, Max will eat anything you put in front of him. This may include non-food items for a couple of years, as long as they're quite palatable - he isn't very on the ball, bless him.
What is is favorite music as a teen?
Hard to say. He'll always be very pally with Jess, so there's no question of him not liking Mood Slime. Honestly, his sense of hearing is no more refined than his sense of taste, so I think it's safe to assume he'll get to like whatever constitutes popular music in the 2020s.
What is his favorite sport? I know the list is probably long with Garrett for a dad.
Umm... tennis? ;D Oh, no, wait, that's my favourite sport.
...Yeah, this is a tough one. There aren't very many sports he doesn't like, but we can cross off basketball and tennis as top of his list, because those are the respective favourite sports of his parents and I figure he'd want to choose a different one. As it's Max, I think it would be something fairly unusual. Let's say snowboarding.
Did he ever get any brothers or sisters?
This is evil. A you'll-have-to-wait-and-see answer would constitute a yes, really, wouldn't it? But I don't mind telling you now that the answer is no. Garrett and Jo had some luck in finding Max, and now that they've got him they're not going to put themselves through the stress of trying to adopt again, especially with Max having some problems and being such a handful. What he really needs is undivided attention at home.
Gosh, I'm on-line a lot today. Well, I am on 400+ posts now, and just as testament to the fact that I have no life (well, honestly, it's more that I have a lot of work to do and I am adept at the art of procrastination... no, really), I've just been watching Property Ladder, which I won't go into detail about because you'll think I'm such a loser for liking it (and you'd probably be right). But anyway, watching it has brought me back to this question that ghostdiva put to me, oh, weeks ago:
What does Jessica do for a living now that she is grown?
After weeks of not thinking about this at all, it suddenly hit me whilst watching this show. I've almost decided to get Jess into property development. Honestly, I only knew I didn't want to make her a mechanic, because that is the ultimate feminist cliche - but with property development you get to use your brain, and you get to boss builders and people around as much as you need to, and you can also get your hands dirty just as a mechanic would without turning yourself into a cliche. You need to be smart, but you don't need any qualifications at all because you're your own boss, and it is what you make it - it really seems perfect for Jess.
My only problem is that, if you do it right - which I don't doubt Jessica would - you can become a millionaire, and I'm not at all sure I want her being a millionaire. But then again, if she only did a development every now and then... it's even something she can do after she has her baby without it really interfering with her care of him. There we go, then, decision made - at some point in her life she'll set herself up as a property developer.
(Edit: Let's take out all that rubbish I wrote...)
