DD is an only child so has the "super first born" thing happening, where they are never "dethroned". We do lots of social things with her with other children so she learns sharing etc and doesn't become a spoiled little PITA lol. She shows all the only child characteristics - leadership, bossiness, independence, is happy to play alone etc. She has an excellent vocabulary and is very advanced for her age, in lots of ways, obviously because we can spend more time with her than we could if we had other children.
