yeah, suppose so, regarding dates! and it certainly does have its "good" and "bad". I sometimes wished for a little sister. But other times I lliked being an only child. My parents tried for some time and had finally given up when my mom found out she was pregnant. She was 39 or 40, not sure...so it was a surprise. It was a difficult pregnancy toward end and I was born very premature.
I was not a premature but my folks were also older. I haven't figured it out as exactly for my dad's side but the gals on my mom's side were both 38 or almost. My mother was exactly 2 month's shy of 38 when I was born and dad was a year & a half older.
With mom having so many older sibs and how old my folks were when they had me I knew about things from waaay back. I even got asked how old I was because of what I knew about! It seems my folks skipped a generation in that some of the grandparents of the kids I went to school with had gone to school with my mother (Dad was living out in a tiny town in the area at that age).
So similar but I have a feeling about a generation apart just because you mention your folks still being alive. Where we do differ is religion. I am not Jewish but a long time member of what is now the United Church of Christ. It was created by combining several different denominations over the years.
