This month, Joelle’s prompt is:  Your family dynamics growing up.

I have two brothers and one sister, all older than me.
Being the baby of the family, Sis considered I was spoilt, favoured and pampered, yet from my point of view I was always in her shadow with comparisons made, even at school.
We were as different as chalk and cheese, each having our own interests and talents. We argued constantly, but never over boyfriends or clothes, and were never actually close as some sisters are.
Bro was my guardian angel, always looking out for me, and tanned my backside when he caught me climbing out of the bedroom window once.
OB however lived away and visited once a month.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Sounds about right. We don’t pick family, and often times we become closer to friends, but there is always an uncomfortable cord tied to family members. Ever notice that when you go home, you feel like you’re a kid again?

    It seems often the first or the last who is most spoilt yet the middle child is the most balanced which probably says a lot about spoiling.
