Here at charmedcity, we are both the eldest children in our families. One of us is the oldest of two, and one of us (me!) is the oldest of seven. Having six younger siblings is pretty much exactly what you would imagine it's like: chaotic, noisy, messy but mostly funny. I was emailed the Christmas wish list of my youngest brother (Charlie, age seven) and though it really has nothing to do with the normal stuff we go on about, it was too funny not to share.
As you can tell from the picture above, Charlie is the kind of bad ass little kid who could do tricks on his two-wheeler before he could spell his name, and who swims unassisted in the Atlantic with a broken arm. (Which he broke falling "about 12,000 feet" out of a tree.)
