Bail's Project on siblings



Bailey, Ashley, and Natalie discuss the benefits of having siblings and the lessons they've learned, such as sharing and getting along. They also talk about the dynamics of being the oldest or youngest sibling. The oldest siblings feel they have more responsibilities and get punished harder, while the youngest siblings feel they get bullied by their older siblings. The group also discusses their preferences for the number of children they want to have, with most agreeing on two, but one person expressing a desire for four. Hey guys, it's Bailey, and I'm here with my sister Ashley. Hey. And Ashley's girlfriend Natalie, which is also my best friend. Hey. And since me and Ashley are siblings, we're going to talk about siblings. And Natalie has a sibling as well. I do. I have a brother. He's a couple years younger, and he's my sibling. So I think we can all pretty much agree that it's nice having a sibling. A thousand percent. Yeah. Pretty awesome. I think so. I'm so grateful for my siblings and all the things I get to do with them. They're pretty fun, pretty nice. We get along really good. Yeah, they just make life better, and our childhood was so much more fun with siblings. I can't imagine it any other way. I think that, like, you learn a lot of lessons having siblings. For example, like, with our parents, Ashley, they would, like, buy us, like, one thing, like, one toy or one game, and they're like, you guys are going to share this, like, all three of you. So I feel like we've learned a lot of lessons, like, how to share, I guess. Oh, absolutely. Like, be giving and, like, I don't know. I feel like I'm a more giving person because of my siblings. Yeah, not just that. Like, how to get along, kind of, like, time management. You're going to play with the toy a certain amount of time, and then, hey, you know, it's Kyle's turn, or it's now Bailey's turn. You know what? I will say, when my brother was born, I was pissed. I was so upset because I loved the spotlight. Still do. And he came in, and I was like, you've got to share the spotlight. And so I actually would try to beat him up and circle him. I was, like, five. I did. I feel like Ashley can definitely relate to that. She was conceivable older siblings. Ashley's oldest. I couldn't help it. And then we can't help it. We can't help it. So we're going to talk a little bit about that, too, like, dynamic in the family. So Ashley and Natalie, now you're both the oldest. Let's hear a little bit about, like, what it's like being the oldest. Yeah, so, I mean, personally, I think being the oldest sibling is the best. I also think it's kind of the hardest. I think we get it the hardest, for sure. You know, like, we get, we got grounded the hardest, and we got punished the hardest. And we're also kind of, like, we have to uphold a lot of the responsibilities that the younger siblings don't have to. Oh, I disagree. I'm, like, so much more responsible than you. See? It happens every time. Well, I mean, I think it's just weird. It depends on how big your age gap is, but, like, not having a sibling and then having one. Because if you're a younger sibling, you don't know any different. But it's just kind of a, I don't know, a little switcheroo. And, I don't know, I think it is really hard in some aspects because your parents are, like, experimenting for the first time on you. They're like, oh, how, like, how much are we going to fuck this kid up? But with love, you know, but, like. That's so accurate. It is. And then I feel like we did, at least for me, I feel like I did get punished a lot harder and grounded more because I don't know why. I agree with the punishment. Thank you. Because I think, like, by the time the youngest rolls around, like, your parents just don't care. They're tired. But, like, I think that being the youngest is, like, you may not get, like, in trouble with your parents as much, but you get, like, pounded on by your siblings. That's true. Which, again, you learn some good lessons with that, but, like, you definitely, you're not missing out. You get bullied. Yes. I definitely bullied my brother. I was perfect to my siblings. Yeah, I know. That's what I'm talking about. No, I was kind of mean to my siblings sometimes, especially when I was left in charge. Also, like, the youngest, I feel like you, like, I'm never in, like, family photos or, like, home videos. I think we're really forgotten about. Yeah, they just, like, they don't care. Or, like, what can I graduate high school? They're, like, yep, and they've done that. Like, your siblings did that. Yeah. I feel like that's valid. I feel like being the first sibling, you get both ends of the spectrum. Like, you get the harder punishments, but you also get, like, the, like, holy shit, they graduated. Like, that's super fun and cool. And then by the time the second siblings roll around, they're, like, this is a little bit less cool. Definitely. We've done this before. Okay, so the question, like, when you guys have kids and, like, I want to have a kid someday, like, how many kids do you guys want to have? I personally want to have two. I think that would be the magic number because, I don't know, I just feel like it's an even number. I would want them to be kind of close in age. I don't know, I just feel like two would be perfect. What do you think, Nat? I agree. I also want two. I feel like one is lonely. Every only child that I've met has been, like, damn, I really wish I had a sibling. But I just, I feel like more than two is a lot to bear in, so I think that's also the magic number. Well, I think, I definitely agree with, like, you can't have, like, your own child just because, like, it's such a lonely life. I mean, I don't know. Because, like, also, you never, you don't know anybody as long as you know your siblings. Yeah, who's going to share your trauma? True, true. But, I don't know, I think, like, if I have two of a different gender, then I would be tempted to, like, stop after that. But, honestly, this is kind of crazy. I feel like, ideally, would be four. Oh, my God. Wow. Just because I want a big family. But, obviously, like, as a teacher, I'm not going to, I don't know how I'm going to afford that. And, also, that's, like, a lot. Yeah. I feel like, in a perfect world, I would have four children. Wow. Well, you never know, you know? Yeah. And people make it work every day. Yeah, I don't know. All right, well, I think that wraps up our talk on siblings. Thanks, you guys, for joining me. Thank you so much. Thanks, Dale.
