Life of a Middle Child

More by this author
Many people are familiar with The Middle Child Syndrome, but perhaps not as familiar as seventeen year old Samantha.

Samantha has been dealing with issues that go hand-in-hand with being the middle child such as occasionally being overlooked and screaming siblings. After seventeen years of normalcy, the middle child took another role: aunt.

Samantha’s older sister became pregnant at the age of 18. The news shocked the family and even angered relatives.

“Everyone was surprised. My mom was like ‘Oh great, news I have to tell my mother.’” says Samantha.
While most people can only be offered an insight into the life of a pregnant teenager through T.V. shows such as MTV’s “Teen Mom”, Samantha sees it every day.
“The shows are pretty similar to my life. My sister is due next month, so she’s pretty hormonal,” says Samantha

Samantha says she is known for making her family laugh, but by next month she will also be known for free babysitting.

“When we found out she was expecting a girl, I knew I wanted to be the fun aunt,” says Samantha.
