    I am my father's first born child

    but I'm my mother's third born. My dad never adopted my two older sisters but he treated them like his kids.

    I Am The Firstborn Daughter

    Not including my step family. I am the firstborn and i have a sister who is 4 years younger than me. We might as well be from different planets- we are total polar opposites. I look more like my dad and she looks more like mum. She is into fashion, boys, shopping and insulting me...

    I'm 6 years older than little bro 1

    and 8 years older than little bro 2. They annoy me so much, but then again, that's wah they're meant to do. Being the firstborn, I'm expected to do well in exams and everything else, to be their role model. Parents often use that as and excuse. Plus they are biased toward them.

    And It Wasn't All Fun, Joy & Laughter...

    Sure, there were moments that it felt good being the eldest -you get to "boss around" & ask your sister to do stuff for you.But it wasn't always like that.In fact, most of the times, it was pretty annoying...& sometimes, just plain sad."Look after you sister, ok?"... "Don't...

    I am a firstborn to a teenage pregnancy. When my birth mother was about 18 she became pregnant with me. She was just starting out in life and realized that she couldn't give me the life she wanted me to have. Before I was born she found my adoptive family and decided they were...

    I was the "role model"

    for my siblings. I am the oldest of six. Although, we weren't close until I moved out. I was the model student and never got into trouble. Now I kind of resent that. I feel like I haven't experienced as much as I should have by now.

    I have two brothers who are younger.

    I was always left in charge of them when my parents were at work or away from the house. I got beat for many things that weren't my fault because of this.

     I am the oldest of three. I have a brother, younger by two years, and a sister, younger by six. My dad had a vasectomy when my sister was six months old, so that was that. My mom often makes jokes about forgetting which kid she's talking to. "***- ***- You know who...

    Plus : In charge and you can be bossy

    and you can oder them around and you can be the evil firstborn of doom. Minus: In charge and have to do everything, anything, and get all the blame. Side note: It's worth it.

    Stereotypical ?

    I seem to be a stereotypical firstborn in that I am a perfectionist and am ambitious.  I am curious... are there any firstborns that are the opposite?

    I was the first of six kids. I have one sister, three half sisters and a half brother. Oh, and a stepsister. :) I assumed this meant to only count your biological parent's kids though.
