bots, tots


Rubi is having a bad day. The toddlers in Classroom One were excited to see her this morning, shouting her name and poking her belly. But Rubi is not her usual self. She tries to sing “The Wheels on the Bus” but stops abruptly in midsong. She’s not making eye contact. And she has some kind of crick in her neck that’s causing her head to jerk erratically.

Javier Movellan has seen enough. He needs to clear the room. He has to communicate to a bunch of 1- and 2-year-olds that there is a mess so urgent they’d better get out in a hurry – diaper change! Soon all the little ones have made their way to the patio, leaving Movellan and his assistants to scurry around, trying to figure out what’s wrong with Rubi.
