    I’m the oldest *girl* of ten children, so yussss most of these were hashtag relatable.

    • Wow! For some reason, I never really knew you had *such* a large family. How many siblings are older than you? It’s just one brother, right?

      Glad you found this list relatable. 😉

      • Yes! I have one older brother. Four younger brothers and four younger sisters! It’s a houseful. 🙂 It’s great though. I love big families. 🙂 (Technically I’m the oldest ‘child’ at home, because Reuben (the older brother) is off at college during the week. :-P)

    I can totally relate to this–I’m the oldest girl (and second-oldest child) of 8 siblings 🙂 And I love them all very much.

    Wait–you just *give* the last cookie to the oldest kid???? WHAT IS THIS HERESY. Everybody knows the last cookie gets divided into eight teeny-tiny slices and distributed equally among the angry devouring hordes.

    (Kidding. Your way probably makes a lot more sense. We’re just kind of crazy down here, and we have a weird thing about dividing food evenly . . .)

    Great post, Eva!

    I’m the middle child so I WAS the minion.
    My older sister was the boss. Hahaha. Just kidding. I don’t remember you bossing us around at all. You must have been a good older sibling or I just have a horrible memory
    I think my kids all treat each other the same though we miss having Jon around to bother They are each other’s minions.

  4. I enjoyed this post! 😀 Being the oldest girl in the family (not the oldest CHILD, but the oldest GIRL), I have to agree with most of these. Unfortunately, I have never been able to make a minion out of my younger siblings, as they would have none of that. But I DO get to do things first (which drives them nuts), and the responsibility thing is true too. 🙂
    Thanks for the fun!
