E-Eldest

I saw this word and my first thought was hey I am the eldest child in my family, I can make this work. I hear the world eldest and immediately think of responsibility. As the eldest child, my 4 half siblings being between 7-10 years younger than me, I tended to be the one responsible for taking care of them. I often helped with homework, changed diapers, took them/walked them to school. Plus you were supposed to be the one to set a good example. But when I look back despite all the responsibilities as the eldest I wouldn’t change it for the world. I love my siblings (my kids) and always will.

  1. With age comes great responsibility? Relative age, anyway. My eldest daughter has taught her sisters so much that she might not even realize! I think it’s just being in that position of automatic authority – but they’re so much better for it.

    Glad I found you through the A to Z Challenge!
