I'd have to say no to both. I only had one brother and we didn't really compete...maybe because we were the opposite sex. So far my kids do really well together. There is a little bickering now and then, but I wouldn't say any rivalry.

I have a brother 5 years apart and we never got along.

My girls are 18 months apart and inseparable. For instance, Veronika went to a classmate's house to play last weekend and all Natasha was doing for the 2 hours is asking when her sister will be back... it works both ways. Like Claire, they have minor bickering once in a while, but not rivalry really. And Sebastian is still a baby and does his own thing, so can't say.

I have an older sister, and well.... sisters! We fought like cats and dogs when we were younger. But now we are best friends and talk every day.

Olive is still to small for real rivalry yet. Jack does tend to answer everything we ask Olive, he says he knows what she is going to say and answers for her!

I have a sister and we don't talk. She's had A LOT of issues and has caused lots of pain to my family.

As far as my boys, they get along great. Mason doesn't like when Ethan takes things away from him but they love each other so much. I hope that never changes.
Thank you Claire1979!

Oh my gosh yes, and YES! Lol - maybe not rivalry per say, but lots of fighting and tears over sharing. My brother tried to drown me once. lol 75% of the time Keller and Isla are BFF's, but watch out that other 25%

Isla 10/27/10 and Keller 4/26/08

My sister is 2 years younger than me and OMG I used to pick on her 24/7 and we were always fighting and turning everything into a competition.... I don't see it as much with Elizabeth and K but its 100% there for Elizabeth and B!!! Its sooo annoying.... don't know how to stop it! She's 5 years older than E!

Happy 5th Birthday to my princess Elizabeth!
