Things that only siblings with big age gaps will understand
August 20, 2015
If you’re the eldest in the family, did you remember when your parents explain to you that in the next few months there will be a baby coming out of your mom’s womb and that you’re not the baby anymore?
Or was there a time in your childhood when you’re trying to comprehend why there were additional people in your house besides your parents and you are obliged to love them, and whatever you have they also do? That you asked your mom who are they until they explained to you that they are your siblings and you’ll have them forever?
Or do you have that moment in your life when you begin to question what are siblings for? (which you later on found out that it’s the pride of your parents, especially your dad because you are the proof that his genes will spread in another generation!)
However, there are things that only siblings with big age gaps will understand! And here are some of them:
1. YOU KNOW HOW TO BE ALONE
Regardless of how your parents make you dependent on them, you’ll always end up doing things on your own. Because even if you deny it there are times when you have to play alone even if you want to do it with somebody else.
No matter how your parents try their best to be with you, there will always be moments in your life where you have to get by with yourself and the bunch of toys that you have.
And when you get old, they always think that you can’t make it on your own. Well, there are times that it’s true. But there are moments when you want to answer back, “I HAVE PLAYED ALL BY MYSELF WHEN YOU HAVEN’T PLANNED BOB YET! AND I MADE IT! I MADE IT!!!!”
2. YOU DON’T HAVE PERMANENT PLAYMATE OR PARTNER IN CRIME
And since you grew up alone, you do not have a default best friend. You don’t have a partner-in-crime until you get to school. So, yeah. You learn how to ‘really’ socialize when you get to school.
3. YOU WENT THROUGH BIG ADJUSTMENTS
Compared to those who were born with siblings alive and kickin’, if you’re the eldest and had a sib after centuries, you probably went through adjustment phases. For instance, if you’re a girl and would have a sister, you’ll see your room being divided into two. You’ll see a new dresser, maybe it will be divided to two, you’ll start to transfer some of your clothes to your “new sister’s” cabinet, and you’re not the princess anymore.
I don’t know how your parents will deal with this, but they have to make up with a new call. Maybe princess 1 and princess 2. Whatever! But for sure, you had a hard time. Especially when your sib came out on your growing years when you needed much attention from your parents. Plus, you were used on being the baby then suddenly you’re part of the support team for the “new baby” in the family.
4. PEOPLE ALWAYS THOUGHT YOU WERE PART OF THE INCREASING POPULATION OF TEENAGE PARENT
Just because teen-age pregnancy has become part of the trend, people always thought you were part of iy. Especially if you’re already high school and you begin to carry your baby bro/sis around the town or started posting photos of him/her on Facebook. Ugh! The struggle is so real! It’s like you want to answer back every looking-eye at you like: “CAN MY PARENTS BE LIKE PEOPLE WHO CAN AFFORD ANOTHER CHILD? PEOPLE, REALLY?!”
5. YOU DON’T HAVE THE SAME GENRE
Just when your favorite artists is Mandy Moore, your sib likes Super Junior or Jessie J already. And Mandy Moore looks like Madonna to them. Ugh!
6. YOU HAVE TO STICK WITH THE NUMBERS
When you scold your sib because of his/her naughty acts, you’ll always have this conversation with your parents…
“What’s your age?”
“And what is Bob’s age?”
“Do you have the same level?”
UGH! You are forced to understand and widen your patience for your younger sib. But in return, younger sibs get to have this kind of convo with you parents…
“Why can’t I go out at night with my friends?”
“Because you’re too young to go out by yourself. You’ll get there in time!”
And you were like there on the side smirking… “IMMA GO OUT!”
