    Default Tell me about your siblings...

    I live in this weird little bubble where weird things blow my mind, like the fact that @CakeyMumma has a brother I didn't know about. So...how many siblings do you have? Are they older/younger? And anything else you may want to share about them...

    I grew up as an only child but when I was 17 I found out that my father had had three children since the last time I had seen him. So I have two younger half sisters and a younger brother. They are (I think) 21, 19 and 17. They live in England. I met them once when I was 21, and I freaked out because they each looked exactly like I had at the same age.

    I'm one of 5. My oldest brother is 10 years older than me, the next brother is 8 years older (same age as DH), then there was a huge gap and my sister was born. She's 16 months older than my twin brother and I. We were conceived while Mum was breastfeeding and on the mini pill. She had her tubes tied after that lol. Wish I was as fertile as she was. One bonus of having so many siblings is I now have 10 wonderful nieces and nephews.

    I have three brothers @harvs !

    My eldest brother is 11 years older than me. We get on great. Pretty close and our kids are close. I have another brother who I am estranged from. He is 6 years older and not a pleasant person. Finally I have my younger brother who is 15 months younger. We were very close as kids but grew apart as teenagers. Our lives took very different directions. Still love him though

    I have one sister. 18 months older than me.
    Quite an intense creature. Fiercely loyal. Can't do small talk.
    Would do anything for her family.
    We used to switch between horrible fighting and intense loyalty.
    Even now we can end up at each other's throats although I'm a bit of a peace keeper these days.
    She bought me my wedding dress!

    I have 4 younger siblings (3 sisters - 25, 18, 16, and 1 brother - 14). They all live in the UK still but only the youngest 2 are at home. The eldest lives and works in London and the second eldest is away at university doing psychology. I practically raised the younger 3 but when I left home they all started turning into people I don't really like under my mums influence. I hated the eldest growing up - she's my mums favourite (always was and very obviously) but since we don't see each other anymore we actually get along well (unless we're around either of my parents! Then she reverts to type lol).
    I love my siblings but at a distance and not for who they are - just because of our history and the fact they are family. Would do anything for them though.

    I have a sister. She is 3.5 years older than me. She drives me fairly cray-cray (In a have-to-share-my-every-single-waking-thought-with-my-little-sister way) but we cling to each other pretty tight, particularly since we don't have our parents.

    I have 2 older sisters and a brother. I get along fairly well with all of them but don't speak to my brother much, he lives interstate and prefers to keep to himself.

    I have 2 older brothers. I don't talk to my eldest one that much but I'm fairly close to my middle brother who's 3 years older.
    I also have 2 step brothers that I don't have much to do with just because we live in different states.
