John Paul

I really love it when I get to teach all the kids in a family. I guess sometimes it can be a bad thing, but most of the time it is really cool. I taught John Paul's older brother and sister, but it has been at least three years since they moved on, so I had forgotten that they had a little brother. John Paul is the coolest! He is in Kinder and he is like a perfect mix of his two older siblings.

Yesterday we were talking about helping out around the house without being asked. You know doing things like putting up your toys, carrying your dishes to the sink and picking up your dirty clothes. John Paul raises his hand and tells me that he already helps out around the house. I asked him if his older brother helps out around the house. He replied, "Rarely."

(sigh) kindergartners.

Hey I know where John Paul is coming from. Being the youngest had a lot of disadvantages. What about you, can you relate to this or were the oldest that "rarely" helped out?

I was the youngest of five and had to do my best to please all of the older kids to keep from getting pounded. I didn't always do such a good job of that. I was quite a bother to my older siblings.
