I knew this would happen someday. I am the oldest of four kids, and the age spans 11 years. That decade is really going to start catching up with me someday. I am going to be the oldest daughter, the OLD aunt, the wrinkly matriarch of the family once my mother passes on (in 50 years). I feel pretty good about myself after having two kids, and roughing it in city life for the past decade, but the OLDEST SISTER thing is starting to creep up on me.
My brother just started college about 2 months ago, after he spent a week being my manny while I was in California. My brother....I guess I will admit it, he's a looker. And on top of that, he is such a nice and good guy. Of course this kind of guy is going to date. When my mom and I discuss our little son/brother (who is now an adult) dating, we reassure ourselves that it's natural (inevitable) to want to date when you are 18 years old. We are just not quite ready for this.
And now....he has a HOT girlfriend. I saw her picture today and I realized that she hasn't had two kids, she doesn't have cellulite and grey hair (I found 3 yesterday!), and her teeth are white and her boobs are....well, she hasn't nursed two children! She's hot!
And now it has begun. My little brother and sister will bring home their fiances and they will be at least a decade (maybe more if my brother is like my husband) younger then me, and they won't have been through the ringer...and I will always have these young and attractive sister and brothers-in-law aging slower then me, and just being younger then me for my entire life!
