What would you choose?

If you could choose any type of siblings, what would you choose? By this I mean, would you want to be an only child? An older brother to two sisters? A younger sister to an older sister? I am a younger sister (I have one older brother.) I think I would choose to have a younger sibling, preferably a sister. It would have been nice to teach her some things...

To be honest, I really don't know. lol I do have a brother who is 3yrs. older than I and he does help me alot if I'm stuck in a situation. I also help him out if I can.

I actually would not change my sibling status at all. I have a sister who is 1 year older and one that is 3 years younger. It has been perfect this way. I have had the older sister to look up to, learn from her mistakes and accomplishments. Then I have my little sister who I can inspire, give advise to, and just be there for her. Yeah I dont think I would change a thing. I cant imagine if I was an only child. I have 2 best friends that I can count on till the end!

I am the youngest of 4, where my two oldest are brothers and the my sister. Not to mention that my oldest rother is 14 years older, the next one 13 years and my sister and i seven years. I would honestly have it no other way being that I have the best of both worlds and I guess because I don't really have a choice...lol... But honestly I would if having the choice choose a sister because there is just a special bond between two sisters that is great to be able to share. We are so close that we live tuogether now and are there for eachother and continue to learn from and teach eachother things.

I'd pick an older brother. I already have 2 older sisters, 2 younger sisters and 2 younger brothers.

I like being the youngest child. I have an older sister and an older brother. I just didn't like when my brother thought that he was the man of house and we had to do everything for him. Being an only child would be lonely don't you think so? Unless you have load of friends to hand around with. Now that we're older, I get to hand around with my sister, we things together. When we were younger we didn't do much.

Good discussion, Molly. You know everyone has thought about this at some time in their lives. I always wished I had an older brother. And while I have 3 sisters, I would like to have a sister closer to me in age, older or younger I wouldn't really care.

i think i would choose a little of both. i'm the oldest and i have a younger sister. i think i would like to stay the oldest though, but i would like to have more siblings. maybe like two younger brothers and another younger sister. i would like to have a bigger family. thats why i had 3 kids. i would have had more if we could afford it.

wow I dont really know....In my adoptive family I'm the youngest and have one older sister and a brother that is older than both of us...but in my biological family IF there were other kids for either of my parents I'd be the oldest which is actually a pretty cool thought.. I guess I'd go with any of them...what I'd choose MORE would to be raised by parents that were NOT abusive and hateful ya know..

i feel you, but sometimes what's there is enough. i mean.. i do dream to have another child in the family to carry. i miss carying a baby and just play with their hands, though i have a niece now. and sometimes dream i was the younger sibling. im the eldest, and i have a younger brother. and he's enough. though he sometimes get on my nerves. but still he's the best. ^^ i learned to accept what life has to bring. and yet, he's the most unbelievable cruel brother in the world, he's still the best brother to play with and to share with. ^^

I'm the oldest of three, a brother and a sister. I always thought it would have been nice to have an older sibling, probably a brother. I know my sister loves having an older brother, he kind of babies her a little, even now (she's 25). But, I love being an older sister, too.
