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.

  3. I don't have any step siblings but am the youngest as I only have an elder sister.

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
