Best Things about being la Hermana Chica
If you’re the youngest sister in your familia, you already know that the role comes with its perks. Aside from being everyone’s regalona, here are some of the best things about your rank:
You get away with WAY more…
AND you can start getting away with it at a WAY younger age.
You’re funnier 😀
It’s said that older siblings tend to feel more anxious with responsibility, where the youngest can be more relaxed and light-hearted.
You grow up to be pretty tough.
Being a test dummy at a young age gives you pretty thick skin later on in life. Pruebame…
You have a built in army of body guards.
Sure, hermanos and hermanas might push you around, but only they can do that. Anyone else messes with you, and lookout!
You get more freedom.
By the time they get to you, mamá y papá realize you’re not going to die over every little thing.
You have someone to hide behind.
Your older siblings will likely take the fall for things, after all they’re older and should know better.
You share in your older siblings milestones…
They turn sixteen, you now have a chauffeur. They turn 21, you now have a solid fake ID.
No matter how old you’re getting, you can take comfort in the fact you’re still the youngest.
You might have to get a little sneaky here, but you have access to their way cooler stuff.
You don’t have to endure “the talk” alone.
Your parents likely just lumped you in with the older kids and you didn’t even know what they were talking about anyways.
