I have a sister five years older than me. Do you have any brothers or sisters? If so what is the age gap between you?

Unfortuneately I don't have any as I am an only child. My mother wanted to have more but she went through menopause right after she had me. She also waited to get married and have children so I was a change of life baby. I grew up wanting siblings, but never did get any. That is why I had 4 children myself. I never wanted them to grow up alone. Have a great day and happy myLotting!!!

It was a shame that you mother was unable to have any more children after you. My mum was 34 when she had my sister and 39 when she had me so she also was a bit later than the average lady. It is wonderful that you have four children.

Wow it would have been ages 2, 9 and 16 when you were children at one point so I wonder if your parents found that demanding? I think that the gap in your family is interesting.

You are quite close in age to your older brother and older sister but there is a very big gap between you and your brother. You and your other siblings must have been surprised, you 13, your sister 14 or 15 and your brother 16 then to have a new baby brother.

in my family, the first child is my eldest brother, which is born 12 years before me. *he passed away by accident when he is 10 years old. so i never meet him .* then came my sister the next 2 years. when my sister was 2 years old, god thought that she need a brother, so he gave her a brother. i think after my brother lived for one year, he thought than life won't be interesting anymore without a younger sister. then somehow, came my second sister. celebrating her 8th birthday, she realized that be the last child is not that easy. she decided to 'resign'. so, you know the next story: i was born

I have one brother who is 18 months younger than I am, and two sisters. One sister is 5 years younger than I am and the other one is 7 years younger than I am. Because of the age difference I was able to really intimidate them when we were kids and I was responsible for making sure that everyone did their chores before my parents came home.

You became responsible quite early in your life then and your parents must have found you helpful.

I have a bigger family and have two sisters and two brothers, they all are elder to me and I am lucky tobe the last one because I get so much of love from them all. My brother who is elder to me is 5 years elder to me. I get whatever I ask them for and so I consider myself really lucky.I have been the most spoiled one too because of all the love that they give me. Now I don't live with them because we all are married and settled in different countries but we keep in touch through emails and phones, letters and they keep on visiting me.I am happy that I have a big family.
