Love and Hate..

I love and hate being the oldest. I love being in charge but I hate being the perfect one. I think my parents expect more out of me because I am the oldest.

It was like that for me when I was younger. And it seemed with each additional kid, the parents seemed to get more laxed on expectations from the others! I have 2 theories on this: 1. As a first time parent, we sometimes have unrealistic views of having the "perfect" children. But we have to learn the hard way, and it's unfortunately tested on the first One! 2. By the time each additional child comes along parents are older, more tired and weary, and it's easier to give in! ;)
