Not all Latinos come from big families, but those that do can come from notoriously B.I.G. families. While it’s great around your birthday or Christmas – because the more gifts the merrier – being the youngest in the family can have some serious drawbacks. Here are just a few examples of what happens when you’re the youngest in a large fam.
Your older brother made it mandatory for you participate in his “what-could-possibly-go-wrong?” experiments.

After two weeks of convincing you that nothing could possibly go wrong with your older brother’s latest stunt, it. goes. horribly. wrong. Every time!
And your older sister tried out her makeup skills on you.

Boy or girl, you were the guinea pig that big sis used to develop her beauty techniques.
If you had long hair, she also tried out new hairstyles on you.

It’ll wash out, right?

Seniority always gets the best seat in any vehicle.
Hand-me-downs were all you ever wore.
Parents aren’t going broke just so you can have the latest clothes. You’ll wear your sister’s dress… and like it!
Like clothes, blame got passed down to you as well.

When something in the house breaks or goes missing, the blame stops with you.
Because you were the smallest, your older siblings always ignored you.

But then you heard the juiciest chisme because they didn’t even notice you were in the room.

Pro-tip: keep all that gossip in your back pocket for later use.

You’re at the bottom of the pecking order, which means you’ll always share a room with someone who doesn’t want you there.
By the time you were born, your parents stopped putting effort into naming their children.

Emmanuel, Enrique, Esmeralda, Emily, Erick, Eliana, and were all named after beloved family members. You were named after your mother’s favorite cat, Bruce.
And when your parents were mad, they couldn’t remember your name.
They have so many kids they get confused and call you the first thing that comes to mind.
Good luck getting your older sibs to let you pick the television channel.

The only way to have access to the television is by waking up super early. Hope you enjoy infomercials. They’re the only thing on at 5 AM.
If you brought your significant other to the house, your older brothers and sisters made sure to ruin your love life.

Your brothers and sisters knew too much about you and did everything to embarrass you in front of your novio/novia. Bringing them to the house is asking for disaster.
As the youngest, you were always terrorized by pranks.

Thanks to your older sibs, you’re the only 10 year old you knew on anxiety meds.

But that just made you stronger in the long run.

Years of torment from them means you can handle anything.
While the older sibs took you for granted, you had some tricks up your sleeve too.
