1. You often* got your older siblings' hand-me-downs.

*All the time.

2. You had to share a room with one of your siblings for a good chunk of your childhood.

Sharing a room is awesome I really love getting zero privacy and sleeping two feet away from my sister


5. Your only chance at a social life is either tagging along with your older sibling or bringing your younger sibling with you wherever you go.

Your parents: "Sure, you can see that movie... Under one condition."

7. Which means your teacher's treatment of you depends entirely on how your sibling acted in their class.


Be sure to thank your older brother for putting that whoopee cushion on your teacher's seat.


14. You're either too old to do "adult stuff," or too young to partake in "kid stuff."

somewhere between “I’m too young to do this” and “I’m too old to do that” we all grew up.

17. But hey, being a middle child has its perks: You can actually end up getting away with basically everything because you often fly ~under the radar~.
