Have you ever thought about birth order and how it affects your personality? I am a believer. I went to a seminar at Heart at Home last year that featured Dr. Kevin Leman, who has written The Birth Order book.
Now this isn't a plug for him or anything, just thought it was interesting. But I totally think it's true. I am the third child in my family. The first two were born 4 minutes apart. Yeah, try living with twin sisters that are 3 years older.... Kevin should write a book about that! Anywhoo.... But I tent to just be the follower. The one who NEVER likes to make plans. The peacekeeper. And I totally pick first born friends. People to tell me where to go and what time to be there. I am getting so good at this I can now pick out if someone is first born after I get to know them for a while. Try it... first borns are the planners, the perfectionist, the responsible ones. You get to the younger siblings and you start to see the happy, carefree ones. The "go with the flow" kind of people.
But when you get 2 'younger siblings' together it's bad. You tend to drive around in the car for 30 minutes saying, "Where do you want to eat?" "I don't know, where do you want to eat?" You get a first born & a younger born in the car, the first born tells you where they want to go and where to turn to get there. I love you first borns. Without you, I would never figure out where to eat, or how to get there, or what time. Thank you for making my life easier. Keep doing what you're doing!
