    9 Secrets Big Sisters Will Never Tell You, And 9 They Want You To Know

    No one except us is allowed to be mean about you.

    1. OK, first things first. You should know that some things are always ours just because we're older than you. This includes the TV remote...

    2. ... the front seat of the car...

    3. ... and the right to shower first.

    None of the above is up for debate.

    4. But if anyone else tells you you can't have something, we'll defend your right to have it without a moment's hesitation.

    We'll be there in a heartbeat.

    5. You should know how much we hated being dressed in the same clothes as you. And I'm sorry but it was worse for us because we're older.

    There is nothing as lame as being dressed the same as your younger sister.

    6. That said, those pictures are kinda cute to look back on now.

    Twitter: @StandardsRaised

    We'll never admit it, but we might even make our own kids dress the same one day.

    7. And, even though we won't ever tell you, you were really adorable back then.

    Looking back on old photos makes us realise how cute you were.

    8. You should know that whenever you left the house, we went through all your personal belongings and read your diary.

    Every time.

    9. But even though it sounds messed up, we only did it because we cared.

    Paramount Pictures

    In our own weird way we just wanted to make sure everything was OK with you.

    10. And we were really mean to everyone you bitched about in your diary.

    Disney Channel

    If you hated someone, we automatically hated them too.

    11. You should know that we still borrow your stuff all the time.

    My sister asked if I stole her cream sweater. Uh, yeah. Who else would've stolen it? You think a burglar broke in and was like "Cute top!"

    Nine out of ten times, when you lose something it's because we have it.

    12. And even though we won't say it out loud, we're happy to return the favour. You may borrow whatever you like.

    As long as you actually return it.

    13. We'll never apologise for covering your eyes during the rude bits of movies.

    Twitter: @joceemartinez

    You can thank us for making sure you didn't see a sex scene until you were a teenager.

    14. We know it spoiled the film, but we only did it because we cared.

    Dualstar Productions

    In a weird way, we felt responsible for you.

    15. I guess it's time to say sorry for all the times we pretended not to be related.

    Touchstone Pictures

    It must have hurt your feelings.

    16. The main reason was that we hated our friends calling you "cute", or worse "hot".

    Paramount Pictures


    17. And it's definitely time to say sorry for fighting you so often.


    We were bigger than you, which meant we always won.

    18. But most of all, we'll never be able to express just how much we love you.


    And how we'd do literally anything in the world for you.
