We're number one, we're number one!
You've always been totally comfortable talking to adults.
You never had to deal with your friends crushing on your siblings.
You got the whole back seat during family road trips.
Because your parents were hyper-conscious about only child stereotypes, you're actually better at sharing than most.
Your school projects were always totally over-the-top and AWESOME.
You've always been very mature for your age.
Because you spent a lot of time on your own as a kid, you developed an especially strong imagination.
Spending a lot of time by yourself also made you self-sufficient, and you're fine being alone.
You never had to share your room.
You're especially close with your parents.
And your best friends become just like siblings to you.
But no one ever knows you as "Katie's brother" or "Alex's sister."
You spent a lot of your childhood in magical, fictional worlds.
Your parents usually went all-out for your birthday parties.
Plus, growing up without siblings made you fiercely independent.
Because you're their one and only, your parents have more time to focus on you and your big dreams.
And sure, sometimes your parents gave you TOO much attention, but at the end of the day it made you more responsible and more self-aware.
And no matter what, you're always the favorite child.
