People might expect the eldest child to be held to high expectations: be more respectful, m
ore responsible, show more initiative. Wrong, I live in a home with five children, including myself, and I’m the one held accountable for everything.
Lord knows my brother’s not gonna do any of that. My brother is the oldest of all of us, Kevin is 17. I’m 16, my little sister Anna, 9, my little brother Jayden, 7, and last my baby sister, Bella, 3. So ya – my house is full. My parents hold me most accountable for everything because they think that my brother is just gonna mess things up so they send me to go do it right.
Mostly my little brother and sisters are only there to bug the crap out of me and my brother because we are continuously watching them for my mom. But honestly, I love these little rascals to death and I couldn’t imagine my life without them.
For my birthday last August, they came into my room to wake me up, which was initially obnoxious until I realized they brought a cake! Then, they danced around to a birthday song, shared a list of things they loved about me, and for the finale, they acted out a scene from Frozen.
Well, some days the only thing I wish for is a little peace and quiet, but overall everything in my little family is complete.
