You're Telling Me

It seems the truth, which I have been shrieking like a banshee about calmly insisting upon for years, is finally out. If only I didn't have to be the one to tell my younger siblings.

Come on, you know if I don't, they'll never hear and all that important research will have been wasted. It's my duty as the responsible older sibling, isn't it?

We must do our duty!


Oh little brother....

You know you already did -- about a hundred times (at least I did!).

I agree. We must do our duty as the oldest siblings. Especially since this article is ABSOLUTELY true.

HEL-LO!!! I was there while "Ferris" got the car and the computer and never mind how easy "Miz" had it growing up as your baby sister!!! There were no curfews for anyone in the house except for US! You could write an entire book about being the oldest sibling! Weren't you looking for bedtime advice too? I think I recall a certain baby sister going to bed whenever she wanted (usually after watching SNL) while wearing her sneakers!

-no need to sign my name to this one!!

So true, Katie! But it wasn't sneakers. Come on, Faith, I bet you remember...anyone, anyone?

This article is so true!! On behalf of younger siblings everywhere, we appreciate all your hardships and thank you for all the benefits of following your lead into the world. Just a few of the benefits for me were getting my ears pierced younger, having a later curfew in high school, and dating at an earlier age. :)
