Parker is 8 years old and Ashton is 9 months old. I like being the oldest because I get to do things first , like shooting a gun and going hunting with my dad. Being the oldest isn't always fun because I have a lot of responsibility like cleaning the cat litter, taking the trash down to the road, and emptying the dishwasher.
