Having a 13 year old has some benefits. I can’t think of them all right now, but one is that he’s pretty good about helping with the younger kids when we’re at Disneyland. Last Sunday morning we went to Disneyland for a few hours.
Number 1 child held number 5 child while we waited in line to get on the monorail and I struggled with the stroller. Later in the day, he carried her when she was tired of being in the stroller. Child number 1 does plenty of things that make me crazy, but for the most part, he’s very sweet to his youngest sister.
