    Me & my sister are 10 years apart we didn't have much in common then but now that we are 22 & 32 we are closer than ever I actually feel her & I are closer to each other than we are to my mom. My sister is very protective & will tend to forget I am an adult at times but I love...

    Yes I Am :)

    I am the youngest child, I have two older brothers so that also makes me to be the only girl in the family as well. Needless to say really, I was really spoiled growing up but I never let anything get to my head. I knew that from an early age, that you should...

    Most people say the youngest child has it the

    easiest. there is that nasty little rumour about how the youngest child of a family is constantly pampered and coddled. But if you’re the youngest, like me, you’ll know that’s not true. we’re forever referred to as the baby – it’s a name that’s stuck with us for...

    Just Happy to Be Here

    I was the last of six children born to my mother who was 40 and my dad who was 45. I'm grateful that they were Catholics, otherwise I probably wouldn't be here. My oldest brother's oldest son was less than two years younger than me, but he died of AIDS when he was about 28. My...

    I hate being the youngest of 4,

    and the only girl. I get treated unfairly and don't get to do as much as my brothers did at the age I am now. Two brothers completely left out of my life because of my Dad but still don't contact any of us either. Being the youngest sucks completely.

    Youngest of the Youngest of the Youngest

    I am the youngest child of the youngest child (my father) of the youngest child (his father). They use that as an excuse to mock me - not meanly. I think it's just because as the youngest child, I've got to be made fun of, because I really don't get enough of it from my older...

    3 older brothers and 2 older sister.

    Life is good, they get blamed for everything, I sit back and laugh, got whatever I want. Okay that sounds bad but it's pretty fun to wrestle with older brothers and play battlefield 4 with them.

    Younger Of Two

    I have an older brother, who I love very much. There are 14 years between us. He was born in 1957 and I was born in 1971. All my days he has been domineering of me but in a protective sort of way, looking out for my best interests. “He ain't heavy, he's my brother.”

    Being the Youngest, Can Suck.

    I'm the youngest of 5. It was not easy to see my older siblings do whatever they want, but, for me, I couldn't do anything. Since I was the youngest, I was supposed to learn from their mistakes. I never was able to make my own mistakes, tread on my own water. It's almost like I...
