Y Is For Youngest

I can't begin to fathom showing you how I yell at my dogs.
Yeah, weird.
(I know you're trying to picture it.)
I'm gonna tell you all about what it's like for me being the youngest, and yet not being the youngest.
My sister and I... sometime in the early 80's.
Growing up I was always the youngest. The baby. 
I felt a sense of importance being the last, the one who broke moms' mould. 
I was definitely spoiled rotten!!
Then I met my dad in the early millennium and learned I wasn't the youngest anymore.
I became Jan from The Bradys. Now the middle child.
Rick (deceased), Donna (pictured above), Darcy and Debbie are older than me.
Cheri and Penny (the twins),  are younger. 
So my world of importance was ripped right out of my esteem!!
At least for a fraction of a moment.
Being estranged for so long, while I talk to my older siblings, my younger ones and I have nothing. They haven't warmed up to the idea of having yet another sibling to share the rivalry with. 
This simply reminds me that I am still the baby of my immediate family. Will always be my moms' youngest. So the feeling of being special to someone gets to stick after all.

  2. There is probably a lot more of that going around nowadays. One of my (step grandsons) has younger siblings and a father he doesn't know about. :-( Yes, I have a half brother (deceased) and half sister, both younger. I was never very close to either, even tho we grew up together...long story....probably me, I am 8 years older than my sister. Our mother has passed so we are getting closer, even tho we live in different cities and have different lives. great post.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
