The Perks of Being an Only Child!

Do you have an older sister who always went as a chaperone to your dates? Or an overprotective older brother who interrogated every guy you ever brought home? Or an adorable yet nagging younger sibling who would drive you crazy? If so, we are sorry to take you through this. But for those lucky ones who have had the good fortune of being an only child, you will totally identify with this! Here are some perks of being an only child.

1. You always had your own room. No sharing, no interference. Forget calling dibs on which side of the bed you would want to sleep on!
