It is indeed National Middle Child Day. Mac and I are both middle children, he had 2 older and 1 younger brother and I'm the middle of 3 girls. Sometimes it was hard being in the middle, there was nothing new you could do that your older sibling hadn't already done and of course you weren't the baby any more. But that was ok, I found my own path, my older sister was the rebel, I was the peace maker, she made scenes, I was the funny one, she got in trouble, I was the good girl.
Middle children hate conflict and Mac and I personify that, we'd run a mile to avoid a fight. I'm always willing to compromise. They say we're good team members, but I'm not and never have been I prefer to work independently. I'm probably bossier than most middle children, but then we had to speak louder to be heard. They say that middles make good teachers and I was a teacher and I'd like to think I was a good one.
Lots of famous middle children, Bill Gates, Abraham Lincoln, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, John Kennedy and oh dear, Donald Trump, though he comes across as more of a first born. Fifty-two% of our presidents were middle children, being able to negotiate is an important middle child skill.
