#NationalONLYCHILD-DAY

I always feel left out on #NationalSiblingsDay   I grew up an only child.  Some of these stereotypes of only children are SPOT ON for me...others...not so much

  1. We are spoiled brats!  I'll be the first one to tell ya, I was definitely spoiled...but I was never a brat!
  2. Only Children are selfish.  True with some but not in my case.  I'm not selfish, but I know exactly what I want and I like my stuff returned to me the way I lent it out....yeah I'm talking to YOU MATT SOMMER!  How many CD's did I lend my oldest/best friend over the years and got them back all scratched up and covered with gunk!  YUCK! LOL
  3. We put a lot of pressure on ourselves.  Well DUH!!!! We have to be the GOOD sibling and the BAD sibling.  We don't have the luxury of deflecting to a brother or sister when we mess up.
  4. We aren't loaners...but we need alone time.  ACCURATE!!  I NEED MY ALONE TIME!  I spent so much time as a kid alone (not complaining) that I became accustomed to having alone time every day.  I like people but I like being alone too!
  5. We don't like conflict.  Every-time my parents fought, I didn't have a sibling to help get through it.  So yeah when there's a conflict, I run...I run so far awayyyyy....(sorry for breaking out into Flock of Seagulls)
