    I am in the middle (answer to Where are you in your family?)

    Hi,

    A: Do you have any siblings?
    B: Yes, I do. I have one sister and brother.
    A: Where are you in your family?
    B: I am in the middle.

    Can we say 'I am in the middle as an answer to that question? I know I can say 'I am a middle child.'

    Thanks.

    You could; it's not a standard answer, but it's clear enough. I would use the middle child as you're the only one.
