“Yes. I have six brothers and sisters and I’m an education major, so I love kids.”

“Sure. I’m a dependable person, and I’ve had experience working with kids through coaching sports and taking care of my little sister.”

“No, because I’m busy all the time and I swear a lot.”

“If I had the time, I think so. I have a little brother and sister, and nieces and nephews that I take care of sometimes. So I think I could do it.”

I already am. It's a great organization.

Probably not. I also swear a lot.

I'm the oldest of eight children and I was/am a wonderful Big Sister, whether they appreciate my loving guidance or not :):)

Don't hold back now, Py, let us know how you really feel :):)

I'd like to think I'd probably be pretty good. I'd have less of a casualty rate than O-Bob, or Lecter, at any rate.

Nope. I have no experience w/ younger siblings. And I also swear a lot.

"All the forced babysitting of younger sibs: dragging them along when I was with my friends: grrr"

Py, mine was the era of drive-in theatres. My father had no problem with me going on a date to the drive-in . . . as long as I was accompanied by one older or 2 younger sibs. Needless to say, they made a lot of trips to the concession stand ;)

WOW you guys are on a roll today I'm laughing so hard my side is hurting. What a way to start a day.

I would make a fantastic Big Brother. Spying on people all day, wiretapping, intercepting cell phone calls and emails, bugging houses, following people ... I'd be great at it.

Oh, wait. That's not what they meant, is it.

No, I am 16 years older than my little brother and he hates me because I was more of a mom than sister to him.

Well, middle, I have ya beat. :)~ (not that it's a contest or anything of the sort) My sister and I are 18 yrs apart. (dad got remarried) I enjoyed being a big sister to her. We done the shopping thing and all that good stuff. We both have kids that are 11 yrs apart.

I would be scared to even think about having H_L for a big brother for my kids...makes mental note: make sure he isn't my kidlets big brother :)~

No, I don't think I would. Children make me nervous. I'd be thinking too hard and analyzing everything I did. They wouldn't have much fun with me.

Sounds like fun.....I'll try anything once!

I have never had a younger brother or sister, but I'm going to safely guess that I would be BAD! I require too much attention myself, and I don't think I could stand that kind of stress. Suprisingly I ended up being a pretty good mom Ha!
