Being the elder sibling is no piece of cake! That little munchkin who looks like an innocent ball of cuteness is actually a little devil whose horns are probably not yet fully grown. The only problem is, you, as an elder sister know that… But your parents and the rest of the world does not! So here are 13 struggles of being an elder sister. We’re sure you will agree!
These little bundles of cuteness can actually be quite Sherlock Holmes-y! Eavesdropping on your conversations, rummaging through your cupboard and reading your WhatsApp conversations if you make the mistake of leaving your phone unlocked!
And boy, can they negotiate!
You can’t even count the number of things that have gone MIA since your sibling(s) started existing!
Any. Damn. Thing! While you get scolded left, right and centre for leaving the lights on, they can get away with almost setting the house on fire just by making that baby face!
You take your eyes of them for one minute and bam! They are drowning in the sink! You can’t opt out of it and nope, you don’t get paid for it.
Your parents and relatives (basically everyone) pamper them more. They get the best presents and the most chocolate! #Huh
Ice-cream, pizza, your room, your cupboard… All things and everything! You always have to settle for half… And the smaller half most times.
The first time you wanted to go for a sleepover at your bestie’s, you had to fight a week long war, complete with tantrums and a 3 hour hunger strike. But your younger siblings will get it at the snap of a finger and your mom may even pack some ‘snacks’ for them. *Silent smirk*
Teletubbies, Oswald, Pingu, Doraemon… You’ve had to sit through it all!
Because let's face it, if they learn any bad words then you can consider yourself dead!
They may just be crying for no reason but you’re ass gonna be whopped!
The only silver lining being, you know all of their other-worldly, weird but highly effective pranks by heart and you can use them to cause turmoil in the adult world!
Of course, you’ll never admit it in front of them. Ain’t no one wants to create Godzillas out of these little cray cray monsters!
