wow you have a big family. . I have 2 other sisters, and 2 brothers.. I like having a lot of siblings, cause it's fun, specially when we were still little kids, I don't remember not having anyone to play with cause I would always have my siblings.. hehehe. though I know it was hard for my parents, but they really gave us everything we wanted when we were kids..

yeah i know what you mean. Having a lot of siblings was really fun as a kid we played a lot though im surrounded by sister i still played with them. And i guess im also the in the middle, being the 5th of 8. But hey we aint the black sheep, we are the cheese or the jam of the sandwich, the good part of it :)

oh wow.. that's really a good way of looking at it. hehehe. I have never thought of it that way.. cause honestly, I AM the black sheep. and I know it. hahahaha. I just don't like following rules, and being said what to do and what not to do. I also hate telling people where I would go, what time would I go home, why would I go out.. specially now that me and my siblings live separately from my parents.

Four is a good number i think its not that many but not too few. I think its a goood balance, though i would not trade my big family for anything.

I only have 1, a sister. I have step siblings on both sides of the family. I've never met my step siblings on my mom's side of the family, but I have met my step brothers on my dad's side of the family a few times before. Though it's been ages since I've seen them or my sister. Happy mylotting!

hello sacmom thnx for the response. So how many step siblings do you have? I guess that way is more easier to have more siblings even if they are just step siblings. Happy mylotting to you too

I'm not really sure. I know I have 2 from my dad's side. Not sure of my mom's side, but I think there is 2 as well. So, that would make a total of 4, if I'm right.

you've got a big family but mine's bigger! i've got 8 siblings which would make us 9 and i am the youngest. you can imagine the age difference of the eldest and mine. when i was 6 years old, my eldest brother's friends thought i am his child, lol! it's fun belonging to a big family!

Wow you have a lot of siblings hehe so you know what i feel. Lol, yeah i know what you mean, my little brother has an age difference of 18 years with my eldest sister. i dont think anyone has told her something like what your friends brother tells him, although anyway it could be her son lol. And you are right, its fun having a big family. Even if sometimes it can be way too overwhelming.

I only have one half sister that I know of. She is younger than me, but we are the best of friends. I know that I have siblings in my biological father's side of the family, but I don't know anything about them...I don't even know how many! It's kind of strange thinking that I have other siblings wandering around and I wouldn't even recognize them

HI Edxcast, I am not from a big family. I have two eldest brother and one eldest sister. So I am the youngest in my family. I have a very close relationship with my siblins although our ages gap is different alot. With my sister,our age gap is 9 years. Whilst,with my first brother is 8 years and my second brother is 5 years. We do keep in touch every month. Sometimes we do chat at Msn or just chat on the phone. I am looking forward for my December trip back to my hometown to meet my siblings,my parents and also my friends.

Hello shia i didnt expect receiving another post in this discussion and i thank you for that. I see what you mean, there is a big gap in your ages. You must be the one who was more spoiled i guess. Usually kids that are born after some time are the one who everyone including the siblings spoil the most. For example, my youngest brother is 6, then the next is 13. My sister that comes after is 15. Then from me to my eldest sister are in a range of 18-24 years(5 kids in that period do you imagine?, my mom is really a heroine). So as you see my little brother has a gap with the next one of 7 years, and with my eldest sister, they have 18 years of difference!!

Hello there! Looks like you have a big family. It sounds so fun! Am I right? I come from a very small family. I am the oldest and I only have one brother which makes me the only daughter in my family too lol. Now both of us are adults and I'm married, our house is very quiet lol. Well, the most important thing is we love each other.

Yeahh having a big family is quite fun actually, although sometimes it can be overwhelming. Having all be in the same car was a big problem. As we only had a Chevrolet Trooper before, so we had to tight up together. Now we are without a car and we havent get out as a family in some time, well except for a few days ago which was the 25th aniversary of my parents. But all of us split on my parents friendsĀ“ car. And two of my sister had to come after as they had to work and university. Yeah you are right it really doesnt matter how many kids you have but the important is that you love each other

Yeahh its the more normal having between 1 and 5 children. I guess your brother felt a little alone not having another male brother. That happened to my eldest brother since from first to the fourth all were women except from him. So he was hoping the fifth would be a male, and yeah that was me!

hello kapeed, its cool also having just a sister. Being the only sometimes(depend of the society) means you are responsible for the family. And hence all the pressure must be over you. Dont know if its really like that where you live

OMG, where are you from? This is my question.O(n_n)O I am a boy from China. I have two sisters while one of them are twins with me. I don't konw the reason why you have so many brothers. You konw, there sre strict rules in my choutry that are used to take the population under control. Thus, if some families have so many childrens, they will be imposed a large amount of fine or forfeit. Of course, it is not easy for a father to run such a big family, isn' it?

Just to correct something: instead of 7 brothers i should have put 7 siblings(in spanish makes sense but i think in english it doesnt). Now to the topic hahaaha your comment make me laugh. Im from Ecuador but its not normal having that many childrens. When i tell the people i know that i have 7 siblings they are like WHAT!! O.o. I guess its not easy but running a big family i think my parents manage to make it more than ok. And yes, i have heard of the laws of your country prohibiting many childs on a family. Thanks for the response and also the friend add. See ya and happy lotting
