You might be a firstborn if:
**You ran for student council or class officer.
**You’re in dance, gymnastics, and take piano lessons, but your little brother only gets to play one sport.
**You have never worn hand-me-downs.
**You got your ears pierced at 12. Your middle sister was 10. Your baby sister was 8.
**It took a week before your parents decided you were old enough to go to a sleepover. Your sister gets invited to a sleepover, she’s a year younger than you were, and Mom texts “Yes” before she pulls away from school pickup.
**You have three baby albums all scrapbooked by hand. Your younger siblings' birth pictures are still on Mom’s laptop.
There are advantages and disadvantages to being your parents' first child.
You ask why I can't be your friend and as much as I really would love for us to be BFF's, this just cannot be. Why can't we be friends? Because you are so much more to me than just a friend, you're my daughter. Now let me tell you what that really means.
You’ve always suspected it. She’s cuter. She’s smarter. She’s more outgoing. She’s your sister. And, you’re completely sick of all of the attention she’s getting. Especially from your parents. It seems as if they like her better than you. They seem to want to spend more time with her. They seem to favor her in arguments. They even wrote on the refrigerator "Wendy is our favorite child. Sorry, Brianna." Ok. So, that last part was just a dream. But, it still hurts and you don’t understand why it seems that they like her so much more.
