They sometimes are! But I don't think that #2 should have to come with me to pick #1 up from school and sit with us in the dermatologist's office while #1 has a rash checked. I don't think that #1 should have to stop his HW and spend an hour of his afternoon going across town with me to pick #2 up from a playdate, only to have to turn around and go back home again. I want them to be grounded and patient, but I also think that there are times to make everyone's life easier (if possible). [ Reply | More ]
