I have two brothers, one of them is six, and the other one turned 13 only a week ago. The six year old brother is very precious, a great artist and very smart. He's stubborn, and he'll never forget a promise you made to him. He knows how to work an iPod touch and tells you how to play Apps and makes you play them and he knows how to charge the iPod if it gets to low power. And yet, he doesn't know how to read! He's a wonderful kid. :D Haha. My 13 year one is, for lack of a better word, a gamer geek. He knows anything and everything about video games, and everything he does revolves around them. He has shirts and all of the systems of this generation and whenever he gets any money he spends it on new games. :] Do you have any siblings? Are you close? What are they like?

I have a sister and we are close enough to be able to talk about everything under the moon, while we are married and stay in different countries, but we are constantly in touch, we used to be best friends when we were young, having the same dresses and accessories, sometimes two timing boyfriends, but i have always wanted a brother and think that is would ahve been great to have one, who would keep pulling our legs and keeping a watch on us.

I am glad you are so close to your sister. :] I am sadly not as close to my brothers as that, but of course that is because we are brother and sister and it's not as easy to bond with someone of the opposite gender. I have wished for most of my life that I could have a sister as well, someone to talk to when I'm upset about things that my brothers won't understand. I have confiding in my mom for most of these things, though. :D

I only have one sister. She's about 5 years younger than I am. We're not very close. We do get along when we see each other, which isn't very often. I'm away at university; She's off at school. So we don't get to see each other often. Even when we were both living at my parents, we weren't all that close. I think that part of the reason is just the age difference between the two of us. And our different personalities.

I am the eldest in the family. I only have 1 brother-the only name bearer of the family and two sisters. My brother is 21 years old and is currently taking up BS Marine Technology hoping to be a ship captain someday. He has a 15-year old girlfriend whom he's madly in love with and is his inspiration. My two lovely sisters are kinda hard headed and usually bring problem in the family, not to mention bringing boyfriends in the house. The younger one is 20 years old and currently out of school after dropping her accountancy course. She said she wants to be a midwife instead, well my mom has to decide that. The youngest is 17 who is currently taking HRM course. She is planning to build a beach hotel and restaurant in the future. Well, in her wildest dream she said.

I have one sibling, a sister. She's 2 1/2 years older than I am. We've never really been close (her choice). The older we got the worse it became. By the time we were teenagers we were avoiding each other like the plague. Anyway, when she was 17 she had a falling out with our mom and she (my sister) moved out. Neither of us saw my sister again for 11 years. Then one day, 9 years ago, she finally decided to come to a birthday party I was holding for my kids. I was rather shocked, seeing as she never came to any other party I invited her to. However, I was happy too. This may sound a little strange, but I was excited to see her. She is my sister, after all. Upon her arrival I thought maybe she wanted to start fresh and have a sisterly relationship with me, but apparently I was wrong. All I did was say hello to her and she snubbed me yet again, just like she used to, like nothing changed between us. So that was the end of me talking to her that day. I haven't seen her since. So, as you can see, my sister and I aren't close at all. However, if she ever decides she wants a sister, she knows where to find me. Happy mylotting!

I come from a large family. I'm the tenth in a family of 11. My elder siblings may have talked like you now when I was 13. As I grew up it was my siblings who really disciplined me, and I remember driving them nuts in several occasions. Now that we're grown ups, we're very close. I realize that our ages have between 2-3 years gap only. So we're like pieces of a chain that links strongly at every point. Three of us, men, used to have a drink every weekend. That was before they both went abroad. But we all still communicate a lot via email, Facebook and SMS.

Yes. I have a sister who is a year older than me and a brother who is two years younger.:) When we were just kids we often fight. I am the middle child so it was hard to really decide where to put myself but in the middle. My sister was very finicky and she wanted all things by herself even those that belonged to me. She can always have what she wants.She had that privilege because she was the smartest among us. She went to a top University here in the Philippines. My brother was her equal since the only son.Like my sister, he can get away with anything and from everything. He can charm our parents that he grew up as a spoiled brat. Now that we are already mature and have families of our own, we seem became closer. Sharing dreams for our families and even fears and frustrations.My sister and I often talk (she works abroad).My brother is now in politics. We learn to accept each other and we learn to love each other as brother and sisters.:)

Yes I have 3 brothers and one sister. My eldest brother has already his own family.But even if has his own family still the bonding and tightness that we have remain still. Sometimes its so hard to become the eldest because all the expectations and responsibilities are being put in your shoulder. You have to be strong and be optimistic so that you can do all the things that you have to do for your family, siblings and for your self.

I have 2 brothers and a sister. One of my brothers is turning 22 this August and the other one is 13 and my sister is turning 20 on October. I'm the eldest by the way. My 22 year old brother is now in training to be a police officer. He's kinda the black sheep of the family. Always giving headaches to my father and mother. But as time flies he changes and I think the training really helps in changing his attitude. My youngest sibling is now in high school. Another problem child in the making. Hope he will have a better attitude when he go to college. My only sister is the brainiac of the family. She got the top honors in elementary and high school and also doing very well in college. I'm not really close in anyone of them but they know that I am always here for them whenever they need me.

I have a brother, he's 12. We are really close, but as all brothers and sisters we sometimes argue about things. He loves reading and watching travel channels. He really would like to travel. He is pretty smart too. He knows all the European, Asian and American capital cities.

Siblings can be a great joy to life. it can be lonely to grow up without any brothers or sisters. I am the oldest of four children. I Have two younger brothers and a younger sister. We may not always have gotten along as children, but there was always love between us.

I do, one sister and one brother. I like them, but we are not very close. We live pretty far from eachother at the moment, so that is probably why. We were closer when we were kids though.

Hi, I am the youngest in my family and I have one eldest sister and two eldest brothers. We have a very close relationship and always keep in touch with each other. I have been staying away from them for the past 15 years, but I visited them once a year,same time visit my parents too. All my sister and my two brothers have their own families, and my son loves to play with his cousins when we were back to my hometown. We all have different character among each other,but one thing to be sure, we love each other very much.

I have a brother. I'm older than him, I think 5 years. I really want another sibling. But my mom is at her 40's, so I guess it will be quite difficult. I love kids, so I'm really happy for my cousins having babies. They'll be like little sisters/brothers to me. They are pretty smart with things. I think most kids are. My cousins daughter who is now 3 started schooling. I think that's really cute.

I have 2 brothers and 1 sister. I was the "surprise" child that come along late in my parents life so my siblings are a lot older than me. My youngest brother is 11 years older than me and my oldest brother is 18 years older than me. My sister is 16 years older than me. We get along great. I never had to worry about arguing with them since they are so much older than I am.
