There once was a certain seven-year-old who ‘wasn’t ready to be a big sister.’
And I understood; when you become the middle child you cease to matter anymore in SOME families. You become the middle child, and your parents pay all the attention to the oldest and the youngest, and you never get anything but leftovers from the other two. In SOME families. I mean, I’m just guessing…
It was probably especially hard for Annie, because she had been the baby of the family for a LONG time, and she got kicked off her throne rather harshly.
But she’s since changed her tune, and fallen in love with baby Susie just like all the rest of us, and realized that just because in some families the middle child is the redheaded stepchild, the scapegoat, the least favorite (I mean, I’m just guessing…), THAT wasn’t gonna happen to HER, and she’s turned into an incredible big sister who loves to ‘babysit’ Susie and is the MASTER of making baby Susie laugh.
