 Have siblings, although I know there were times I wished otherwise growing up : )

I have (had) two sisters and one brother.  One sister was only 2 years younger than me and we fought like cat and dog growing up - until someone picked on one of us when it was Us Against The World!  She passed away nearly 9 years ago and I miss her so much - we were great friends as adults.

My next sister down was 5 years younger than me.  We weren't friends much as kids, really not much in common then but I was kind of a Second Mum to her.  She had dreadful trouble with tangled hair and I was the only one she would let brush it because I was gentle and eased the knots out rather than tugging.  We spent ages sitting together, me easing the knots out and her talking about her day.  We are very close now.

My brother is 10 years younger than me.  We didn't have much in common growing up and even less now that he is a drug addict with mental illnesses that have taken him away from most of the family.

definitely siblings.  my dd is an only and she hates it.  I have 7 brothers and 3 sisters  including steps. There was always something going on and no  room to be lonely.

This is how my sons are~ they are 3 years apart.

Quoting drfink:

one sister.We were enemies one moment and best friends the next,now I don't know what I would do without her.She feels the same.

We have our own friends ,our own BFFs and share some friends also .

LOL my sister and I are three years apart.I'm older.

.It is SOOOOOO true for my 15 and 16 y.o. sons.One minute they can barely be polite to each other...probably they are polite only because I'm in the area....then 5 minutes later asking if they can go to a movie together laughing and talking.
