Dear Middle Child,
I know that sometimes it may seem like everyone forgets you. I grew up the oldest of three and my own middle sister claims to have been slighted as a child, even to this day!
But, I promise you middle child, this is not the case. If anything your father and I are trying our best to make sure you never feel neglected or somehow left behind.
Ok, so you may not have had an official baby shower or even an official first birthday celebration. You missed out on a fancy nursery with color-coordinated bedding. Your backpack may also be a hand-me-down.
Yet, your childhood has been filled with just as many memories and experiences as your old brother. This is more important than “things” dear middle child.
It may take you a bit you realize it, but sometimes life is not fair. You don’t get everything that those around you get… and that’s ok. You never complain about it, or at least you haven’t yet.
You’ve moved into the official role of Middle Child as we welcomed a new baby into our family. It’s a new title, one that we think will fit you well.
