Growing up with kids your age or close to you is great, it will help you out with the rough times in your life and often assist you with growing up. You will always have somebody to fall back on and have support wherever you are. I have a brother and sister, we used to fight soo much but now couldn't do without chatting now and then.
I'm a guy and I have a sister. When we were very young we were very close. By the age of 10-12 we actually "hated" each other. When we were in our late teens, we acted as if each other didn't exist. ( I loved it when her girlfriends came to visit though). After she married and moved out, I missed her really bad. Throughout our adulthood, we have remained very close and realize that we loved each other all along.
I have 3 brothers and 3 sisters...They all drive me absolutely insane. I am closest to the oldest of my brothers that is about a year younger than me. I am fiercely protective of them all. I may fight with them, especially since I am one of the oldest of them all...But I will do anything for every single one of them and I try to be someone they would look up to<3
From birth to 5 they are great, from 5-16 annoying. From 16 to 21 not so bad most of the time. From 21 to parental age you hardly know they are there . After that they are usually pretty good though you don't want to live with them. After 50 they are awesome!
Annoying sometimes, but there for you. My sister, likes to act tough but can't take it when I show her who's tough. She acts stupid, but I love her to death and teach her manners and tutor her. My little brother is the sweetest guy in the whole wide world. Since he's three, he can be a real crybaby though.
I have 3 brothers and 3 sister and me the baby. We used to fight like crazy! Annoy, pick on, steal stuff from, embarrass each other in front friends, everything!! But we love each other even if we dont admit it. When a boy threw a brick at my head my brothers flipped out on the guy bcuz they care! I <3 having big bros now that im older even tho they drove me insane when we were younger. now that all but 2 moved out i miss them like crazy! Itz so much fun having my sister home to share clothes and talk to about girl stuff tho! I love having siblings!!
They are your best friends! I have 2 twin brothers and they are the best thing that has ever happened to me. I'm glad I don't have sisters, because boys are the coolest. We are like 3 friends that can do stuff together. When we sit down to watch TV we end up with it paused the whole time while we talk. Sure, they get annoying and they do stuff you don't think you can forgive them for, but they are the best!
