    The Only Girl...

    I am the only daughter and grand daughter on both sides. I must say...it does have its perks. It was nice having my own room, and bathroom. Better yet, never having to share my Barbie Dream House...or pink Convertible. On the flip side, growing up with brothers was no picnic. I...

    There's Good and Bad Things About It

    Sometimes I hate it, because when I was little, at times, I wished I had a sister to play with, and now I think it would be great to have a sibling to share things with. (Yes, I know, lots of brothers and sisters don't get on, but why on earth would I wish for I sibling that...

    Cynic Sibling

    I'm the only daughter my parents have while my older brother is staying abroad with my childless aunt. It's tough being alone because my parents think so highly of me and expect so much from me it makes me sick.Both my parents have lots of siblings. Father was the youngest of all...

    Only Child Actually..

    ...my parents married later in life, and my mother didn't even realize she was pregnant until she was 5 months along. MY mother wanted a little girl she could dress up like a doll. I was a tomboy from early on, never a girly-girl...She accepted that early on. I always wanted...

    Never Really Thought About It...

    Sadly Yes

    I am the only daughter and youngest child. I hate being the only girl besides my mother (who is always working!) I am stuck with 3 mean brothers! I am usually ignored because I'm the youngest. It sucks a lot because my brothers treat me like their slave and like a child when I'm...

    I Am, And I Don't Like It

    The pressure that comes along with being the only daughter and the oldest child is in my opinion unreasonable. I have three brothers, but I'm the only one who is expected to take care of my parents. Three years ago my dad was diagnosed with lung cancer, and around the same time...
