Last summer while having my grandchildren over for a fun overnight get together I overheard this conversation. It was so cute I thought I had to video it to share with their moms.
Jilly is the youngest in her family and Cole is the youngest in his family. They are cousins. Jilly is two years older than Cole. Cole who was sitting on a high stool made the comment that he was taller than Jillianna. This was her first chance at being bigger, older, and taller than someone else and she wanted to claim the role and make certain others were aware of it too. Click on the link below to view the video. Hope you enjoy the video as much as I did. Make sure to listen for the little stomping feet as they walk off at the end!
There are many different opinions out there about how birth order may or may not affect our behaviors or personalities. I found this statement on Dr. Oz…. They also have a need to “dethrone” the first-born. Also, they can go out of their way to prove their individuality, since they end up with all the hand-me-downs.

Dr. Oz just might be right. They are cousins and both youngest children. Could this be explained as two individuals attempting to “dethrone” each other? What do you think?
