My Mundane Musings

Growing up I longed for the fast paced life of big city life and corporate America. Now I’m a stay at home mom of 4 in a small rural community! And I wouldn’t have it any other way! (At least for now).

Jan Brady Syndrome… October 10, 2007

Filed under: family,kids — Rebekah Sanders @ 6:44 pm

Or JBS.  It’s a syndrome that is specific to middle children.  And apparently my daughter has caught it.

Now, she is never left out.  She’s the only girl, so if anything she’s probably a bit more spoiled than the others.  Not to mention that she demands the attention she doesn’t get.  She is Kaitlyn.  Hear her roar!

But, in the past two days, I’ve heard some remarks out of her that can only be associated with some deep seated middle child issues.  What did she say that just made me shake my head and say, “You know that’s not true!”?

Chip was jokingly looking for her as we left the house.  Even though she was standing right in front of him, he was yelling, “Where’s Kaitlyn?  Kaitlyn, where are you?”  Normally it’s a fun game and she giggles and rolls her eyes and calls him silly.

Not yesterday, yesterday she simply hung her head and said, “That’s me.  Always the invisible one!”

Oh. My. Whatever are the teenage years going to bring?!  I’m a little bit afraid!
