From Our Readers: 5 Things the Only Girl in the Family Can Relate to

Since you have no one to share your crown with, you'll always be your family's princess.

  1. You always get new things!

Whether you're an only child or are living with five brothers (!!!), you always get new things since there's no one else you can borrow from or get your hand-me-downs from—unless you'd like to use your brothers' old shirts, then go ahead.

  1. You are best friends with mom.

You are always living the Hollywood life, where your mom is your one and only paparazzi. Whether it's your first day in school or your prom, she's always there holding her camera and taking photos (candid or not) of you. You looove shopping with her, too, because you're the only one she can ask for fashion and beauty advice. You guys are very close that you sometimes treat each other like sisters. She practically knows all the things you love!

  1. You know how to stand up for yourself.

Wrestling may not be your thing, but when you grow up alone or with a family of boys, you just have to learn how to stand up and speak up for yourself. You have no one to rely on except yourself, which is why you've learned early on that you need to learn to express what's on your mind and in your heart.

  1. You're daddy's favorite girl.

Because, obviously, you're the only girl in the family and that automatically makes you his only princess. Your dad is always ready to confront every boy who likes you, and to listen to Taylor Swift's songs during a long car ride. He's your favorite Jollibee drive-thru buddy and of course, your guy best friend.

  1. You are the apple of everyone's eye in your family.

Whether it's your tita or your lola, everyone in your family's always telling you how much you've grown into a fine young lady. You have a love-hate relationship with family reunions because a lot of your relatives always ask you about personal and sometimes even offensive questions ("May boyfriend ka na ba?" or "Parang tumaba ka ata?").

But despite everything, at the end of the day, you're always thankful to have a family that treats you not only as a daughter or as a sister, but also as a princess!
