With great power comes great responsibility…and noogies.

1. We know that our siblings are looking up to us, and that we must set a perfect example.

2. We must never show the slightest sign of fear.

4. Also, we had to take the full brunt of mom and dad’s weirdness all by ourselves.

5. We’re always trying to put a smile on everyone’s face.

6. Always having to pretend to care about boring baby stuff that’s way below our superior intellect.

7. It’s up to us to take the creative lead.
