Being an older sibling comes with its setbacks. You’re kind of the guinea pig for your parents; the kid they’ll inevitably screw up a little as they figure out what they’re doing. You’re also likely to live under much stricter rules than your younger siblings – something you’ll definitely be bitter about for the rest of time.
It’s not all bad though. As the first child, you get certain advantages. One of which is: you get to boss your younger siblings around.
Elle Fanning shared the footage to Instagram over the weekend, and it’s about as incredible as it sounds (read: very).
In the video, the Fanning sisters are getting ready for some trick or treating (I assume) and Dakota is seen dominating the whole production.
At one point she even turns to Elle (who looks like she might be say, five?) and chastises her for taking off her wig.
The sass with which she delivers the line, “Go get your wig back on!” is seriously impressive.
Seeing the two little ladies prepare for their big night out – Dakota Fanning is prepping her eyebrows, which I did not learn to do until I was at least 25 – is insanely cute and instils a solid dose of FOMO in us Aussie kids who never got to celebrate Halloween while growing up.
Halloween jealousy, aside, however, the video is extremely relatable to anyone with a sibling. Whether you were the one doing the bossing, or the one being bossed around.
