WARNING: Written from a mother's point of view.

According to Parents, firstborns often tend to be:
  • Reliable
  • Conscientious
  • Structured
  • Cautious
  • Controlling
  • Achievers

Firstborns bask in their parents' presence, which may explain why they sometimes act like mini-adults. Firstborns are diligent and want to be the best at everything they do. They excel at winning the hearts of their elders.


Ann-Louise is all of these things and much, much more - again, in my perhaps somewhat biased opinion. She is a very loving and caring person and a very loyal and supportive daughter and friend. She is very hardworking and has achieved a lot. Perhaps one of her only weaknesses is that she sometimes lacks self-confidence and puts herself down. 

Ann-Louise with Friends in Thailand

Like me, she really enjoys basking in the sun. She has been a true companion (as I get older I will probably have to use a different word) the last three summers on our "girls only" trip to somewhere warm and sunny! Although she is only 23, she has traveled farther than I have. In 2013 she traveled to Japan on a class trip and then spent some time afterwards in Thailand before returning to Norway.

Update December 2014:

Ann-Louise has accepted a position at Kongsberg Maritime! I am so happy and proud that she got a job before she graduates in June 2015.
