Are you close to yours? Do they live near you? Do your kids see them often? Do they have kids?

I am close to my brother, although we don't get to see each other very often. He and his family live about 2 hours north of us. Sadly, no...they rarely get to see them.. My brother works a lot, my SIL is a home care nurse and works a lot, my niece ( almost 21) is in college and my nephew (24) is already out of college...my girls are 8 and 6 and very busy between school, Karate and Church so it's difficult to get up there to see them.

I'm very close to both my sisters and one had a little girl.  DD is very close to them and loves her cousin very much.  We see eachother almost every weekend.

 Two brothers and one sister. We're very close. We all live in different states, but we get together with kids at least a couple times a year. It's easier now that our kids are older. When we all had young kids it was more difficult.

I'm not close to my siblings. Honestly I don't even know how many nieces and nephews I have. I don't know how many siblings I have.

I have seen one of nephews. Tyreed was born when I was 15 I saw him a couple of times before my family moved when I was 15. That was 20 years ago.

My oldest sister has 2 children a boy Andre and a girl Morgan. I have only seen pictures and she has only seen pictures of my boys.

My siblings and I are not close I am the result of an affair so I certainly didn't want to be around them and they weren't crazy about having a bastard little sister.

My sister is actually visiting me right now.  :)  We don't see each other as much but we talk everyday.  We work on taking care of my dad and his needs.  My brother and I aren't close, we see each other twice a year.

I have three sisters. Two live close, but I'm only close to the one. My other lives on the other side of the country and I'm going to since out there to see her before Thanksgiving. All of my sisters have kids, but they're all my age.

I know the feeling my sisters kids are mych older than mine and we do not see them often but keep in touch in many other ways!

Quoting mcginnisc:

I have a brother who currently lives in town and we get along okay. The kids don't spend a lot of time with him due to his mental illness issues. I have two step sisters who don't live in town and we don't see them often. One is older than me and one is younger, but my dad and stepmom got together and got married after I had moved out so my stepsisters and I didn't grow up together or anything
