I think whether you’re the youngest or oldest, there are pros and cons. If you’re the oldest, you have a lot of responsibility, but you also get more privileges. If you’re the youngest you get to be the ”baby” longer but you also have more people telling you what to do.
I was the older sibling growing up. I have one sister who is 5 years younger than me. One of my favorite things about being the oldest was that I feel like I got to be a little kid for longer. Even when I was ”too old” to do things like play Barbies, my little sister still wanted me to play with her. Especially because she was much younger than me, I got to do all the little kid things all over again with her.
Sometimes I do wish I was the youngest, though. I feel like my sister got away with a lot more growing up because she was the ”baby”. Also, she got to be a ”pretend” only child for awhile when I went away to college.
The only thing I would NOT want is to be an only child. Even though we fought sometimes, I love having a sibling and I think life would have been a lot more boring without her.
