I am taking the challenge as well!!!

When I was a child I wanted a sister.   

Many years ago my mother got pregnant and I remenber when my parents went to the hospital because the "moment" had arrived!  (at that time you were not able to know if the baby was a boy or a girl. You had to wait that your mother gave birth to know it!), I got anxious, because remember: I wanted a sister! 

I put my elbows over the window and waited for long hours for my father"s return from the hospital. When I saw my father I started to run to the entrance of my home and without breathing I asked him loudly -with my elementary language at that age-  DAD, WHAT HAPPENED? and he said: IT IS A BOY!!!

I started to cry inconsolably ....because I wanted a sister!  The same story was repeated many times....because I HAVE FOUR BROTHERS...... and I do not have sisters!

I love all my brothers and I am extremely lucky of having them.   Everyone of my brothers is a treasure for me, but when I was a little girl I really wanted a sister!! Now, when we remember that memory we laugh a lot with my family.

Thanks for reading it!!!

 PD: That is not my picture.......

Hi Janeth!

You're most welcome. It is so nice to read your blog. Hope to read more from you. :)

The verb 'start'+infinite/gerund, both are correct.

You can read this as references:



And, by the way, if you don't mind..

I am extremely lucky to have them.

I am glad that you liked it Jeong Hojin.  I smile as well every time when I remember that I asked my father the same question many times....I am sorry that you do not have brothers, but I am pretty sure that you have amazing friends around you.

Thank you so much for reading my story!

I have a feeling of happiness during reading your article.

I was automatically smiled to image your action at that time.

I envy you have four brothers because I don't have brothers than you

Many thanks to you Onee-chan for giving us this interesting challenge!  I think we all learned a lot from it and we had pleasant moments writing our own challenge and reading others"s challenges. That was extremely enriching!

So, you only have brothers like me, don"t you?  Your point of view is really nice: princess and princes! 

Thanks for you time, I appreciate it! 

PD:  I have a doubt, I wrote: "started to cry" instead of "started crying".  Which one is correct? Thanks in advance!

LOL, Janeth.

So many thanks for taking part in this challenge. 

You know it's so precious to be the only princess beside three princes, lol. I'm also like you. I'm the only daughter of four children. :D But I never screamed out loud crying wishing to have another girl sibling. lol

It's so interesting to hear your story. Great! You've done well completing ten sentences in your unforgettable moment. ^^

Thank you once again for sharing. :)

Hi Rosemary, Thank you for your comment.  You are right, we love all our siblings but there are things that you can do with a sister and others with a brother.  But that is life! And we are grateful for what we have....even without a sister!  Thank you so much for taking the time to read the stoty. I appreciate it!

   :)  sometimes  it is hard to be the only girl in the family   , there are things u couldn't  say or share with boys  . U need a sister to be close to u  .  Same thing if there is an only  boy in the family  . However  , ur story is nice  :)

Thank you so much Estanis for your comment and your congratulations!!!.....but remember "I wanted a sister" (just kidding).

No, I was 5 when my mother got pregnant of my first brother.

Comment by Estanis on July 5, 2018 at 19:30

Hola Janeth! Congratulations for your four non sisters and thanks for sharing :)

btw, it,s shocking too that after almost 20 years being an only child, your mother tells you that you're gonna have a sibling :D
