A REAL CASE OF MIDDLE CHILD SYNDROME
Middle Child Syndrome...ABSOLUTELY I had it. To make matters worse was that my older sibling was a girl and the baby was a boy. Like the typical Middle Child (MC) in any situation like this, you were faced with a choice; be swallowed in the shadows of those two or do your damnedest to stand out and get their attention. Maybe it was my nature that was the Alpha female of the pack, but I took the 'do my damnedest to get their attention' route. Hence, where the competitive nature I have.
(Side Note: Of course I had to post the awkward childhood photo of us three. I love it!)
