This Is Middle Child's Day!  

Noel Hendrickson

If you grew up the middle child with both older and younger siblings, you know the feeling a from a very personal perspective.

The first born is a very special. He, or she, has all of mom and dad for a while before the second child comes along. The final child is and always will be the baby of the family.  Older and younger children tend to be more outgoing, or extroverted.

The middle child tends to be more introverted, quieter, perhaps a bit of a loner.

Today, we place into the limelight, on every middle child. Here's to a little well deserved recognition to the  wonderful and special middle child in the family.

Now Let's P-A-R-T-Y!
