Not and Ingalls episode
30 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is yet another example of a person who's been a long - term resident of Walnut Grove that we've never met before. Laura talks like she's a real dear friend of the family, yet we never met her before.

I can really understand Sara's problem with Jason's working with Ruthie so much. No mother wants to feel she's being replaced by another mother- figure. I can also understand why she had such a problem with the broach, but I think she should have been a little more sensitive to Jason's feelings. She broke his heart. A little boy has no idea how much a broach costs.

The saddest part comes after this. It's something that kids cannot understand. But after Sara finds out the truth, she has no trouble with anything Ruthie gives her. The episode turns on a sad note.
