TELL ME A TALE IN (EXACTLY) 120 WORDS – Family

tmat120

Today’s prompt is:  Your family dynamics growing up.

I am the second child of four. My older brother is five years older than me, and for the most part growing up, I was his irritating little brother. At times I excelled at it.
Below me were a brother and a sister. My younger brother and I played a lot in the backyard, and my sister was sent to annoy me and has done that so well throughout life.
My dad was the head of the family unless mum took over when there was some crisis. I used to go and watch and ‘help’ my father with jobs, and after I’d irritated him to the point of distraction, he would say: “Go and tell your mother she wants you.”
