is it has good parts and bad parts funny but you know the good parts. You know you can tell your brothers what to do especially if you're really young. The bad thing about you get all the blame for everything you don't think you get all the blame. My life. Good good place. Like one am I so funny. You should've known better. Yeah why didn't you stop though. I don't want running around in the morning. I was catching my brother one morning and my brother Michael and I took him and I grabbed him. He screamed. He was running fast. He went right into the into the wall into the parking lot and he started screaming rather going down goes. It was all your fault you do this every morning. Leave him alone. Yes that was him do when he was out being the youngest in the family you get. Sometimes you get spoiled and sometimes you don't. I don't get spoiled get treated just.
Like no special than anybody else because. Some of my sisters and brothers are living with us. There's only three living in St.. My sister my brother and me in a. We just get treated all the same like my sister gets more calls and asking because my brother will get no clothes. And neither one of us really like toys. So when we get older. And you know we just get treated the same it's like well you're older you get more and you're a second older so you don't you don't get as much as if you're the smallest noodle you can hardly at all. So that way that you know my brother will be in the middle he'll probably get the less attention you know because the smallest one will get attention because he's a little sad and he doesn't know what's wrong. Right. And the first child will probably be cared for in the middle child and you know what's going on. So. So it's no wonder really wouldn't want to be a middle child. See like I'm happy I'm the youngest in my family but if you're the oldest and you have two
younger brothers and sisters go to same school and you didn't go with one teacher and they go a teacher that's all they hear about your brother was good at this. Oh yes.

Series Description
"ZOOM is a children's show comprised of weekly half-hour episodes which showed what youngsters do and think. Seven ZOOMers hosted each episdoe, and the cast changed over run of series. ZOOM premiered locally as ""Summer-Do"" in 1970, and premiered nationally in January 1972. ZOOMers played games, told jokes, riddles (called Fannee Doolees) and stories and did crafts projects...and invited ideas from their audience. The result was an avalanche of ZOOMmail - in the first season, over 200,000 letters. Additionally, the Ubbi Dubbi language was invented by ZOOM."
