7 Things You Go Through If You're The Youngest Sister

If you're the youngest girl in the family, then you've experienced all of these.

7 Things You Go Through If You're The Youngest Sister

If you're the youngest sister, like I am, you have probably gone through the same things as me. We've both grown up a little faster and been judged a little sooner, whether it was good or bad. Being the little sister is a unique experience, and if you have never gone through it, then here's what it's like.

1. You'll have older friends.

If you're the youngest girl in the house, you'll probably have older friends. This is most likely due to you forcing your older sisters to let you hang out with them. Your sisters find it extremely annoying, but they know they'll get in trouble if they don't include you. You eat this up and enjoy hanging with the "cool" kids.

2. 50 percent of your wardrobe will be hand-me-downs.

As you're growing up, your parents will save money by giving you old clothes that belonged to your sisters. This probably won't last through your teen years, thank God, but you'll definitely have a hard time avoiding it when you're a little kid. Hopefully, the hand-me-downs will be cute! If they aren't... you'll constantly find yourself saying, "I swear I didn't pick this out. It was my sister's."

3. You'll be exposed to "oldies."

If your sisters are old enough, they might've educated you in older music and film. This is an advantage because people will be impressed you know the words to a song that came out six years before you were born. You can rock out to your sister's childhood music with her!

4. You'll be compared to your sisters a LOT.

If you're the youngest, your parents and everyone else will compare you to your older sisters all the time. It's always going to be something like, "Your sister was so much more productive," or "your sisters never back-talked like you do."

You're going to want to respond with a smart comment like, "Well I'm not my sister!" That will get you nowhere, and they will continue to do it.

5. Your sisters will be jealous because your parents are less strict with you.

When your oldest sister was born, your parents were probably new at the job. They were pretty strict, and they stuck to the rules. Now parenting has become a breeze, and they just don't care as much. You'll get a phone before your sisters did, you'll get to go out more than your sisters did, and your parents will be a lot more lenient with you. Your sisters will complain all the time that it's not fair, while you just smile and enjoy it.

6. Teachers or employers will already have an opinion of you.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F06%2F6361404183208744361100259789_teacher.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=996&h=711a4f49ccdd152baa63eee4611ebde3867ba6a5773a02ffb6129995efb6bb91&size=980x&c=674120310 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F06%252F6361404183208744361100259789_teacher.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D996%26h%3D711a4f49ccdd152baa63eee4611ebde3867ba6a5773a02ffb6129995efb6bb91%26size%3D980x%26c%3D674120310%22%7D" expand=1]

If a teacher or employer worked with your sisters before you, they probably already have an opinion of you. Hopefully, they loved your sisters, because then they'll love you. If your sisters had a bad reputation, you'll have to work extra hard to get that teacher or employer to like you. Thankfully I can proudly tell my teachers who my sisters are, but I definitely know some people who'd rather keep it a secret.

7. You'll ultimately have very similar style.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F06%2F6361404237131174721744635832_style.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=435&h=b60058df82e6cc61bd00f511160c94e6473f033c4072f19761356c3e57e1edef&size=980x&c=3838064780 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F06%252F6361404237131174721744635832_style.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D435%26h%3Db60058df82e6cc61bd00f511160c94e6473f033c4072f19761356c3e57e1edef%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3838064780%22%7D" expand=1]

Depending on the age gap, you could potentially end up with the same style as your sisters. When you're really young, you'll want to be just like them, and you might think this desire completely goes away, but it really doesn't. There'll always be a part of you that looks up to your sisters and mimics them. In the beginning, you'll be considered a copycat, but eventually, their style will be your own.

There are advantages and disadvantages of being the youngest, but the one thing that's the same for everyone with a sister is having the best support system in the world.

You are not alone - NY Yankees charge their players for WIFI on flights

It was recently in the news that the NY Yankees do not provide free wifi for their players on away game flights!!! That's earth shattering news because teams usually charter flights for their players, coaches, and support staff. These flights are typically equipped with amenities such as Wi-Fi, comfortable seating, and in-flight entertainment.
