Good News: Middle Child’s Day Will Still Go On
Many holidays and events have been canceled or postponed this year, but there is still one holiday that will be happening!
We received a press release from the International Middle Child Union stating that Middle Child's Day will still happen on August 12th. A funny quote in the press release from the union's founder, Bruce Hopman, says: "if we called it off, it probably would be no different than any other year. Nobody would even notice!"
Did you know there was a Middle Child's Day? I didn't. I knew there was a Siblings Day (April 10th), and an Only Child Day (April 12th). It's kind of awkward that a) I didn't even know Middle Child's Day existed, and b) Only Child Day and Siblings Day are in April, and Middle Child's Day is in August.
If you have a Middle Child, put August 12th in your phone calendar right now. Set a reminder to show them a little extra love, and maybe make a cute social media post about them on that day too!
And of course, this post is all in fun - Middle Children (and all kids) should be appreciated every day!
