My elder brother is 4 years older than me. I actually don't remember him being around all that much growing up, because all his spare time was spent on the farm with Dad. When he was around, he was always trying to hurt one of us. That's what big brothers do, right? I do remember sitting in the loungeroom in our PJs one day listening to Ice House, deciding that it was such a cool song just because he liked it!
My sister is 2 years older than me. She was sort of difficult as a teenager- always going against what Mum had told her and I always felt causing friction just because she could. We shared a room for a long time, and probably fought a lot. But when it came to the crunch, she would be there for me. I was bullied horribly at school, but if she saw me she and her friends would spend the rest of break with me.
My little brother is about 3.5 years younger than me. He is a cool cat, and very funny. We spent all of our childhood together and were quite close. Now that we're both grown up and live about 7 minutes away from each other, we hardly see each other. He is engaged with no kids and a job that could send him away for months at a time. He loves video games so my kids think he is the coolest, especially when they get to a hard level- they ask for Uncle T to come over and help them
Funnily enough, the sibling I spend most time with now is my eldest brother. We are going to his house today for a BBQ with his fiancee and son

I have a brother who 2 years older and a half sister who is 12 years younger. My bro & I fought terribly as kids, but he always had my back. Now we get along great and catch up regularly, his kids love my DS.
My half sister (we never refer to her as a half sibling though) have had our ups and downs. We had a massive falling out in the lead up to her wedding, she lost the plot and accused me of saying and doing things that were just simply not true. She's since apologised in her own way and tried really hard to repair the relationship. And we actually get along great now and talk or catch up regularly.
We're all very different people, but we love each other and enjoy spending time together

I am the oldest of three girls, my sisters are just shy of 2 and 5 years younger. We are all close but have definitely had our share of fights and I don't know how my parents survived three teenage daughters! And I'm terrified for the teenage years now I have two little girls of my own.
My youngest sis and I have similar personalities, but she has struggled since she mc her first bub that was due a few weeks after my second. I see my other sister more regularly at the moment as she has a little one and we do swimming lessons together and our kids just adore each other.

I am the youngest of three girls. My half sisters are 9 and 7 years older than me. We are fairly close but unfortunately live in different states.
My eldest sister has two little girls who absolutely adore my ds and my other sister has three girls and 1 boy, I unfortunately haven't met one of her little girls.
My eldest sister and I are closest and she was an amazing support person for dh and I during the labour of our ds.

It was really nice to wake up to all of these extra responses! I'm surprised to see so many families with what I consider big age gaps. And all these blended families and things! It just goes to show how big the range of 'normal' is :-)

I have one older brother, 19 months age gap. We moved a lot as kids (military) so relied on each other a fair bit. We were close as kids, hated each other most of the time as teenagers, then became good friends in our 20s. We have travelled together, lived together overseas, have loads on in-jokes and get along really well. We're very different though, he doesn't want kids and is a quieter person by nature who doesn't show much emotion. We live in the same city but he's moving interstate soon. We talk on the phone occasionally and see each other when we can. We're all going on an overseas holiday together later in the year.
I'm also pretty close to my SILs these days. When I was pregnant with my second they were both pregnant with their firsts so all our kids are very close in age (except my DD who is just in love with all these babies!).

I've got 1 full sister, 2 half brothers, 1 half sister, 1 step sister and 1 step brother. I don't see any of them. That makes me sad, but there's so much bad blood and family drama every time I see them that I just can't get involved with them. I have prioritised my DH and children above the pointless sh!t they put me and them through.
