The older kids in our household get lots of special privileges.
They are trusted to stir the bubbling pots before things get burned.
And their services are often required to check the food in the microwave. Ouch! Better wear an oven mitt--that might be hot!
They also get to coach PE on a regular basis. Whatever Big Sissy says, goes.
Except when it doesn't. Then the Tickle Monster comes out.
After all, special privileges have their own rewards.
