As much as all you older siblings out there may think we have it good, being the baby of the family isn’t always easy! Yes, yes, we’ve told on you many a time and gotten you in trouble with the parents – but hey, you too have your fair share of moments, where you’ve basically tormented and bullied for most of the first decade of our lives! Here are 16 things about being a younger sibling that you will totally get if you are one!
Yup, this was basically part of your Happy Birthday routine – pretty much every year!
We’re sure you remember all too well how those scissors would somehow always come flying in your direction!
You have TV to watch too, dammit!
Colour me vintage, baby!
“Oh! You only got 10 out of 20 in your spellings? Your brother was always so good at English.”
You have embarrassing stories about other people too! Why don’t we hear some of those for a change?!
You really knew how to play the sympathy card. And your sibling hated being scolded with the words: “She’s only little! You should know better, how can you tease her!!” Tee-hee!
Sometimes you STILL have to check what’s under your bed before getting a decent night of sleep!
This is fact!
And sometimes it was not even by the window, but the middle of the back seat! Sigh! You kind of got used to this one a long time ago …
Given that your older sibling has already paved the way for going out for parties at night, sleeping over at friends’ houses, having a boyfriend or girlfriend, etc. Yes, you really do have them to thank for fighting those fights!
… And can now execute yours to perfection!
Being the baby is ALL YOU HAVE!
Even when they annoy you, it’s nice to have someone there to form a union against the parents!
After all, you’d do the same for them! 🙂
