Yes, I have one brother, and would love to have had sister or sisters as well!
I often envied people who had sisters as friends however my brother and I ARE good friends but possibly not the same as sisters, even though I know not everyone gets on with their brothers and sisters.
I always wished I had a brother,as my sister and I never really got on very well. When my dad remarried after mum died,I ended up with a much younger step-sister and I was in heaven!!! She has remained close with me for the 40 years since we all met!
I desperately wanted another sibling for 8 years (I had one brother at the time). When I was 11, Mum got pregnant. I was over the moon. Mum? Not so much! That baby sister is now a professional storyteller. See storytree.com.au. She's fabulous.
Oh! garde, thank you! It's only in the last six years that my sister's attitude towards me has come to the fore. Much, I feel, is to do with jealousy, pent-up for many decades'. She perceives my getting 'more' in every which-way from our parents' than she did!
Her husband died from the effects of a cancerous melanoma 32 years' ago, & she still is depressive about his death, just sitting around home, doing nothing, except whingeing. Even after a decent amount of mourning time, she never bothered to 'get out & about' to enjoy time remaining of her life. Now it's too late, she turns 80 on Sep 30th, although could pass for 70, on a good day. She's too many arthritic problems to be able to walk around a shopping centre etc.
Her children, well the eldest, daughter, is a 'basket case'; the next, son, is bipolar, is 53, & still lives with her, & just studies various Degree Courses nonstop, & the youngest, daughter, is a 'loser', who's worked all her life as a nurse, & NEVER has 5c to her name, but still has a huge mortgage to pay-off on house bought decades' ago! NONE have ever married. There're way too 'dysfunctional' for that!
My two children have 'done well' in life.
My son is a Head Chef, with Patisserie Certificate, & B.Hosp.Mgt.
No I didnít want anymore. My mother only wanted 1 child, (me) as she was an only child, so was her mother, & her mother & her mother, but my father wanted 4 children, so he got 4 children! My brother died 2 years ago, & I feel my 2 sisters are closer to each other, than I am to them.
I have one of each, I love them both dearly and I have never thought about wanting other siblings as we fit so well. I feel very sad when I read that others here have problem siblings. What a waste. I have an only child and it has never occurred to her to want a sibling, for which I have always been grateful, as I never wanted another child.
