Today, August 12th is National Middle Child(ren) Day.

I'm the first born in our family. You know, that means I'm the most loved, at least that's what my brother and sister believed. It's tough being the middle child, you’re not the leader, so you aren’t able to have things your own way. You’re also no longer the baby of the family, so you aren’t as protected. And you’re certainly not excused for bad behaviour. It might seem like nothing ever really goes your way.

If you're old enough to remember and are a middle child, you can probably relate to Jan Brady from The Brady Bunch when she cried Marcia! Marcia! Marcia!
