Little Ritchie was kind of a brat
That boy was so irritating. They treated him like a baby all the time too. There was one episode where he had to learn a song about the Mona Lisa for school, and he kept singing "the Mommy Lisa" like he was three years old! He must've been at least 8 or 9. Laura was so delicate around him, like he was their little china doll. I thought the show was very funny when the kid was not in the story.
