When you look at the statistics, you can see that at any given time, the most common number of children for a family to have is actually just one, followed by two, and trailing a bit distantly is three or more.
Which means that if you, like me, grew up with two or more siblings, your experience is actually in the minority, even though the things we’ve seen feel so very universal, and are so aptly expressed in these memes.
15. The attack
Oh now you’ve done it, you’ve unleashed the beast.
14. The difference
Gotta smile for the camera.
He was like this when I found him, I swear.
12. The oldest trick in the book
In the era of all-wireless controllers it’s even harder for them to tell.
11. Ending the cycle
I am with you in this cause.
10. The smug look
I have everything and you have nothing!
9. What a twist
Then you learn the trick and perpetuate it on others, that’s how this goes.
8. Take a seat
It’s not about comfort, it’s about the principal of the thing.
7. The ruse
TV day, here I come.
6. What’s mine is mine
We’re not super great at leaning toward equity naturally.
5. The switcheroo
You shouldn’t have. No really, you shouldn’t have.
4. Mean machine
I ain’t your dad.
“First borns are always the meanest..”
Because we became parents of children we didn’t make. So yeah, we’re very angry.

If you let me keep a 60/40 share of the money you can beat the crap out of me, homes.
Someone: Would you slap your sibling for $1.5 million?
Me: I would slap my sibling for fkin looking at me.

2. Don’t tell mom
It goes on and on.
Just overheard my 54 year old dad tell my 58 year old aunt “don’t tell mom”
So apparently that’s a lifelong thing.

1. The look
