Being the only girl in a family of boys is a very interesting, yet fun dynamic to grow up in. There are things you do and go through on a daily basis without even realizing it is because you are the only girl.

1. Mom likes shopping for you the best

Probably the biggest perk!! It gets so old shopping for sweatpants and new gym shoes for sons, but when a daughter wants to go shopping and browse all the cute clothes, Mom's enjoy doing it. There's a better chance you'll get random clothing items or cute décor from your mom that caught her eye while she was shopping for herself.

2. You are tougher and stronger than most of your friends

Of course, you and your brothers love eachother but fights happen within siblings no matter what. If you grew up with only brothers, fights were not only screaming matches but tended to become physical more often than not. Eventually, girls have to learn how to stand their own ground. You are your moms go to for all girly events

Whether it be a shopping trip, nail appointmentor spa day, no one wants to go alone. If you're the only girl you have no sisters to compete against to go with mom. There's nothing better than your parent asking you if you want to tag along on a pamper day!

3. You tended to play more physical sports growing up

Growing up with all boys, whenever you played with them it would always be sports they enjoyed. You never choreographed a dance with them or watched princess movies. Throughout the years, you would learn to love the sports you always played with your brothers. As you grew up, you would join basketball or soccer teams over cheer or dance because its what you know best.

4. Your Dad treated you like a son

Growing up with only brothers, you have to learn to not be too sensitive. Your dad treated you like one of the boys, because it is what he was used to. You went to more major leauge sporting events than most of your friends, because it is what most of your family loved to do, and you came to love it just as much as them.

5. You love every second of it

Everyone's childhood is unique and growing up with only boys makes it even better. You learn to laugh at your mistakes and joke around with their sense of humor.

I Believe In Big Brothers

A big brother is more than just someone who makes fun of you and beats up the ones who break your heart.

109

I believe in big brothers. Whether related by blood or water, everyone needs a big brother. Someone to guide you, find you, and fight for you. Someone you can talk to every day but still have stuff to say. Someone who makes fun of you but won't let anyone else.

When I was younger I would follow around my brother, imitating his every move. My brother would then turn around switch places with me and start imitating my every move. We were close, but then he got older and moved away for college and then a job. We didn't talk as much and I only saw him when he came home for holidays, but even then we were so busy we didn't hang out. I lost my big brother, for a little while.

When my brother moved back home, he became part of my daily life. Every day, I would pick him up from the bus stop, and he would ask,

"Do you want ice cream because I want ice cream? Let's get DQ."

I could never pass up ice cream so we would we would drive around screaming Fergie at the top of our lungs and finishing the treat, making sure our mom didn't find out we had it.

Two Oreo and cookie dough blizzards later and the secrets began to spill. We would tell each other everything- relationship problems, work/school issues, things mom did that annoyed us, secrets we couldn't tell our parents, the TV shows we were watching. As the music blasted through the speakers, my brother gave me advice and explained his problems. Then the radio switched to Taylor Swift and we would spend a couple of seconds sharing our hatred for her, but in the end, our voices synced up as we sang along.

As I left for college, leaving my big brother was so sad. I would miss the ice cream runs, boxing fights, and late night eating sessions. It's hard to be away from your best friend.

But college brought us closer. As I began to follow the same path as my brother, he was able to guide and lead me to avoid his mistakes. Even though we were miles apart we still continued our usual antics.

A big brother is more than just someone who makes fun of you and beats up the ones who break your heart. A big brother is someone who teaches you how to be sarcastic, calls you just to tell you about the terrible show he watched and knows when someone's not good enough for you. A big brother is someone who could have no knowledge of where you are but still find you. A big brother is someone who never leaves your side—no matter how big the fight or how far apart you are.
