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 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.
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!
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 didn’t 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.
