Being a Big Sister: Senior reflects on birth of new sibling

Sindy Garcia, Staff Writer

Being a big sister is great. 

I mean sometimes it can be a little complicated because you may get blamed for things because you’re the oldest, but it’s all worth it because at the end of the day you feel lovely and have a heartwarming feeling when you help your younger siblings out. 

        On April 12, 2021, at 2:00 p.m. I became a big sister again for the fourth time. Mackenzie Rose was born. 

I was thrilled all through my mom’s whole pregnancy because since I am much older now than when she had my other siblings I can experience everything, from changing diapers to carrying her and actually remembering these things when I grow up.

        When I was much younger and I first became a big sister, I didn’t really understand and I didn’t know what was going on. I don’t remember carrying my younger siblings or anything, but with my new baby sister, I will. I will get to experience everything, and I will cherish all these memories forever.

         I can’t wait to be the big sister she looks up to and goes to me for guidance through her journey in life. I am pretty excited because my younger siblings and I get to experience this together. 

         I wouldn’t change being the big sister for anything in the world. Especially because I get to be in charge. Just kidding. I love all my sisters and brother.
