They say, middle children are the pleas’ers. A person who tries to please or amuse. I’d say that definition describes my middle child accurately.

When you have multiple children, one of whom has been sick for days, it’s easy to overlook the ‘pleasing children.’ Particularly when they are sandwiched between the strong-will child and the Mama’s Boy.
