You were also probably chuffed to hold them for the first time.

4. You couldn't help but feel a little jealous and didn't really get what all of the baby fuss was about.

And how cute.

6. You watch A LOT of children's shows.


7. ...and there's a select few you secretly love.


Probably because you forced them upon your little brother and/or sister.

8. In fact, you get really excited about introducing your sibling to television shows they've never seen.


9. ...and bands they've probably never even heard of.

10. You feel really, really old when you meet your younger siblings friends.


11. ...and you don't really understand any of their interests.

13. You like to think you're mature and wise so you often dish out advice.


Even if it isn't exactly helpful.

14. You're really jealous they get to have childhood fun while you have to deal with the real world.


Being an adult is DUMB.

15. Despite the big age gap, you still manage to fight.

16. ...but if anyone tries to hurt your little brother and/or sister, you get really protective.


17. You can't wait until they're old enough to actually hang out with.


It'll be so nice to go to a cute cafe rather than a playground.

18. When special occasions roll around, you never know what to buy them.
