REALM OF THE YOUNGER SIBLING — Younger siblings are simultaneously the best and the worst when it comes to just about everything. How do I know this you ask? Simple, I’m the youngest of five children.
As the youngest, it’s true that your parents spoil you a bit, but let me lay this out for the older siblings who just don’t understand and think we have it made in the shade.
First off, we have to thank you older siblings, because if it weren’t for you, Mom and Dad wouldn’t be so easy on us. All of your bone-headed decisions growing up made it so our parents knew that as long as I wasn’t as irresponsible as you, we were pretty good kids. I also think that our parents see that we are often treated by our older siblings like that half-eaten chicken wing from last night, so they go a little easy on us.
This latter point of being picked on by our older siblings explains our obnoxious nature and why the little brother in this video is now the champion of younger siblings everywhere.
A sister is in the bathroom singing into a mirror in an effort to show off her singing skills, which in her defense aren’t bad. Her skills, however, are nothing compared to her little brother’s love of dance.
Her younger sibling is dancing in the shower behind her and owning it. This kid transforms the shower into a glass cage of emotion and tugs at our heartstrings as he reminds us what it means to feel.
The video will anger older siblings and cause younger siblings to rise to their feet and offer a hearty round of applause as we wipe away a tear of gratitude and pride.
