  •  I am the first born to a first and third born. (15+ / 0-)

    Mom was a first born and my dad third, except that there's 10 years between him and his surviving older sister (younger sister died before dad was born of childhood lukemia).  I'm the first born grandchild on mom's side and first granddaughter, second grandchild, on dad's side and there's 9-12 years difference between my cousin and myself.  I have one younger sister.

    I think I fit the typical stereo type for first borns.  I'm the one expected to care for the rest of the family and for the most part, I'm the one who has always physically helped my parents with their needs as they've gotten older.  Yeah, I'm bit of a conformist, when it makes sense!!!  My sister was definitely a rebel to the authority.  In the group of us four contractors at work, the other three seem to have decided that I'm the leader.  I didn't ask for it..... but when the senior pgmr isn't around, they seem to defer to my decisions and/or opinions.
