August 12 – Day 224

National Middle Child’s Day… a holiday of minimal importance.. much like the middle child

Very rarely does the middle child get to advance position after all birth giving has been completed for a family.
It’s virtually impossible to move up the ranks.

But alas, thanks to a little doctor negligence and a lot of choriocarcinoma, I was able to do just that, ladies and gentlemen.

Becoming the eldest child in the Turpin household has not been without strife, and lying in wait for 29 years didn’t equate a clean transition by any means, but here I am, now, on this National Middle Child’s Day sitting atop the Iron Throne of Birth Order.

Not only am I now the oldest child, I’m older than the previous eldest will ever be! So here’s to me!
