    Default worth

    I would like know the meaning of "baby brothers are worth it"

    My twin brothers are funny, but sometimes they make my mom crazy!
    Yesterday was one of those times.
    In the morning, they pulled all of their clothes out of their dresser
    At lunch, they spilled a gallon of juice on the floor
    Right after their baths, they pulled a plant out of its pot.
    Dirt went everywhere! Our house was a mess yesterday,
    but Mom says baby brothers are worth it.

    Baby brothers are worth having, despite all the trouble they can cause. We often use "it" with "worth," where the it refers to the various problems that are associated with it.

    For instance, we might say:
    "The winters may be cold and snowy but living here is worth it."
    "I always find them difficult to get along with, but temperamental sopranos are worth it."
