when you talk about things from your child hood to people do you find yourself answering with "we did/liked/etc" instead of I? My sister and I were just talking about this. We both say we a lot. We are 17 months apart, shared a room, toys, went every where together!

My sister and I are 18 months apart.  I tend to pluralize things a lot also.

I'm the middle child. I am 1 1/2 years apart from my older and from my younger brother. We all say "remember when we..." because we did a lot of things together.

My sister and I are less than 1 year apart and we definitely do this sometimes.

Other times, we have differing opinions and say "I".  But it's usually something we have discussed prior and were pretty surprised that we didn't feel the same about. LOL

We're in our 40's now, and if we're together, it often becomes a "we like/hated..."  If we're apart, I will often say, "Me and my sister thought"...

 My brothers are 6 and 8 years older than I......so when I refer to my childhood it is always in the singular version.......I was pretty much raised as an only child since my brothers were older and always had each other to play with.......It sucked because I was lonely alot....
