2nd of four. No other relatives at all except my 3 step-kids and 1 grandson. None of us had any children of our own.
He'* an only child but that will change in 6 more months I'm told. Time to spoil another one

I am 100% an only child. Because of it I am an introvert and proud of it. I am not really social and actually enjoy being left alone. Not that I don't enjoy talikng to people, I just value alone time more than most. I'm glad I am a only child, that means I get to inherit all my parents debt.

One younger brother - 8 yrs younger, so basically was raised as an only child. He was 11 when I got married. We are not very close to this day...that part sucks. That'* why I had my all 4 of my kids within 8 years of each other.

That sounds lkike the situation with my older brother.
He lives about 10 min away and I haven't talked to him but maybe three or four times in the last 2 or 3 years.

Not even so much as a call on birthdays but at least my oldest brother still calls me occasionally

Only child here, but no way spoiled. My family is Dutch, so enough said. Though they did give me the best Christmas gift ever a couple years ago--they forgave my remaining college debt after paying a few grand over 6-7 years. I probably had $15K owed to them yet.

But not spoiled????
Yeah, that'* a bit spoiled I guess, but otherwise I was in no way spoiled as I grew up. Heck, I had to wear Toughskins until I was in high school and started complaining about needing some decent clothes to wear.

Actually I am the oldest, and the most spoiled. It was not that way when I was growing up mind you, my brother and I were spoiled equally, now because I have children and I think I that when I was first married, I relied on my dad a lot for jobs around our house because PDad was working so much, that now my father likes to feel he is still needed.

But overall, it is PJess who is BY FAR the most spoiled, she gets whatever she wants from my parents, recently my father was going to see the house he won and just decided the night before he was supposed to go, he wanted Jessica to go with my mom and him, so he got her a plane ticket. They have taken her on vacations with them, and I think that is a wonderful thing, Andrew has his other grandparents to spoil him
