So are you an only child? Do you have any brothers or sisters? Do they have kids? Are you close?

I have two brothers. They each have one son. One brother I don't talk to at all (long story) and the other I talk to every now and then. We are close, but could be closer.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my wonderful siggy!

I am the oldest of 3. I have a 19 year old bro and a 13 year old sister. We're very close, but weren't always. It took me getting married and moving out to bring us closer. We don't live together very well. When I go visit one or two weekends a month, we get a long very well and stay up half the night chatting.

I have 2 younger sisters. One is 25 and the other is 16. I am very close to my 25 year old sister. She has 2 kids ages 4 and 3 and my DD is right in the middle of both of them. We talk almost everyday and trade off babysitting. As for my 16 year old sis...uh we get alone but she is sooo much younger then I am.

I have a sister 12 years older than me. She has a 19 year old daughter, and no I do not get along with my sister, she's a pill head and is always begging for money and makes you into the bad guy if you don't give it to her.
Needless to say, she's not in my life because I don't want that around my family or child. She doesn't get it.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my siggy!!

I also have 2 step sisters both older, 1 is about 27 (we aren't close at all) she does have 2 kids, the other is deceased we would talk and i know she always had my back if I needed her she was only 2 years older than me. My step brother is in his late 20's and we don't talk much either.

I just have one brother who's 21. We don't not get along but we aren't that close. Just in different places in our lives and very different.

Because of this Ive always wanted to have more than 2 kids. It would be nice to have at least one other sibling to be closer with.

I'm an only child (and so is DH). The closest I have is a girl I've known since kindergarten.. She's an honorary sister as we've known each other for so long and she lived with me and my family for a little while. My mom is like a second mom to her. She has three kids: a 4-year-old boy, a 2-year-old boy, and a baby girl who was just born in May. We're not terribly close since our lives took us in different ways over the years, but we enjoy visiting and she's helping me with baby stuff now that we're finally having our first.

I have two older sisters. One is 29 and has a 4-year-old daughter (and is pregnant and due a month after me). The other is 25 and has no kids but will be beginning to try for kids later this year.

I'm closer to my middle sister because she's only two years older and we shared a room for 12 years.

My oldest sister and I get along but we have our moments. We are still getting better after the last fight we had on my 21st birthday. When she still lived at home, we didn't get along at all. We were constantly fighting and she was always calling me names. Once she moved out, things got better. I never hated her for being so mean to me because I thought she was the coolest person EVER! I mean, when I was 10, she was 16 and that alone made her cool!

Thanks Tasha_Mae for my siggy!!

I have 3 sisters. My older sister is 32 and has 2 kids (well 3 since her DF has 1) a girl and a boy, and her DF has a girl. My next to me youngest sister is 26 and she has 4 kids- 3 girls and 1 boy. And my youngest sister is gonna be 25 this year and has no kids. We are all close now. But growing up we couldn't stand each other. I talk to my oldest sister pretty much daily and the other 2 a few times a week.

I have 2 brothers (I am the middle child). One is 32 and the other will be 29 in 20 days.

The 32 year old has no kids. We wet along ok but do not have things to talk about. He was one of the first groups in Iraq and came back changed a lot. Then he went for 2 more tours.

The almost 29 year old and I use to be super close. He too was one of the first groups over in Iraq and he was in some of the bad situations you never hear about. Lack of food and water among other things. He came back VERY different. Suddenly he hated civilian females. He turned quite nasty towards me.

He does have a daughter. Another sad situation for him. The mother played games with him while pregnant. First it was his, then not his, then abortion, and then start over. He was not allowed to be at the birth and HE was the one who contacted Child Support Services to set up paternity testing and so he could pay child support. Well, the little girl is his (he knew she was) and the mother came from a very well to do family. They got a really good lawyer and ripped into him when they went into court. He pays over 1/3 of his income to a girl who lives with her mommy and daddy, still does not work (child is 4) and refuses to let him see the little girl. My brother managed to get a few supervised visits in the last year but every time he puts in a compliant they pull out their lawyer. It is sad. He really loves that little girl. The mother has thrown out gifts he got her in the trash right in front of him.

Now I will not lie, while he has become a LOT more social (we think the initial negativity was due to the ex and what happened in Iraq cause he was fine with males). BUT he does have 2 DWI's. The first is 3 years old (after a court appt where the girl slammed him to the wall about visitation) and the 2nd he made the mistake of being drunk and sleeping in his car in the bar parking lot. He was not driving and keys were on the seat (the bar owner will verify, he helped my bro when they went to court over that one). Now, I have a zero tolerance with drinking that much. So I do not feel bad, but that ex of his uses it against him. She will not even meet him someplace. NONE of us outside my brother have ever met the little girl. We have tried to call the ex to see if she will allow us to either drop off gifts or see her and we were told if we call again she will hit us up with harassment.

I have a brother who is 2 years older than me. He is married with 2 boys. They live in England so we haven't seen them for a few years. We used to talk a lot and email a lot, but he is always busy with his family, so I don't hear from them too often. It's a miracle when they answer an email I send them!
