    I took my oldest to the concert

    1) I took my oldest to the concert
    (Meaning: I took my oldest child to the concert.)

    Sentence '1' is fine if one has more than two children. But what would one say if one had only two children?

    Would this be correct in that case:
    2) I took my older to the concert.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.
