The good,the bad and the ugly in being the youngest sibling.
If you grew up with siblings,your’e well aware of the sometimes humorous,sometimes abhorrently annoying dynamics of the situation.If your’e youngest you tend to only see the most annoying parts.I’m sure being the oldest has its ups and downs too but,much like in real life,its time for the youngest to have the final word on the matter.
You have zero baby pictures of just you.An older sibling/cousin is Always in there.
Always being accused of being your parents favourite.
‘Oh,you only got 12 out of 20 in your spellings?your brother was always so good at english”
Said a disappointed teacher to every younger sibling ever.
By the time you reach important life milestones (graduation,awards,marriage etc),everyone is bored with them already,your’s no big deal.
Forever being referred to as “THE BABY ” no matter your age.
Never being let in ,on family secrets
Phuppo talks stops the moment you walk in and being replaced by an awkward smile, is a staple of your home life.
The youngest sibling is always the most teased.
Still you could always win fights with your elder brother or sister by bursting into tears.
Your Siblings constantly told you that you were adopted,just to mess with your head.
Then there’s the stressful situation of lieing to your parents on your sibling’s behalf.
But having to whip out your blackmail incase that someone refuses to co’operate with your demands.
The sheer power your sibling had over allowing you to turn on their Video Games.
No matter what game you played ,you were always picked last and you were always first out
You sat at the Adults table once in your life,and it was a major let down.
You never have control of the remote.You’ve learnt to like whatever is on Tv.
Your parents never,ever,ever got your name right.(Kheejo,Bunty,laddoo blah blah)
Having your older siblings put incharge while the parents were out for a few minutes meant you became their slave.
Everyone is surprised when you excel in something.
