Are you close in age to your siblings? My sister is 6 years and 1 day older than me, and while we aren't REALLY close I think it has more to do with our personalities than our age difference (especially as we get older and the age gap is less noticable) I just know I hated having HER boss me around and act like my mom so I really try to make sure Mckenna doesn't do that!

Also I have two brothers who are 14/15 years younger than me! So I can relate with lots of your kids!

Thanks for my siggy Steph2007!

I have a sister 3 years younger, and a brother 9 years younger than I am.

My sister and I fought like cats and dogs until college- then we became friends and roomates.
My lil brother has always been my buddy. (I spoil him rotten still and he's now 21).
He and my sister don't get along too well. (Personality clash more than age difference?!?)

I have mega-widely spaced sibs lol. Let's see... I have 5 siblings (all half). My dad was married had 4 kids... divorced and then 20 yrs later... started a "new" family with my mom. My mom had a son from her previous marriage. So my brother from my mom is 8 yrs older than me and we keep in steady contact, my sibs from my dad... my sister who is the youngest other than me is the only one I talk to and she's almost 20 yrs older than me (and has 3 kids and 2 grandkids!) and the rest are even older! The oldest isn't that much younger than my mom MOM!!! Talk about weird! My mom is 18 yrs younger than my dad who just turned 70. So yeah, I got WIDELY spaced everything LOL! Makes mine look close.. haha!

My sister is 3 years younger than me. My brother is 11 years younger than me. My mom had an opps when I was 25, but she "took care" of that one. (I don't want to debate that topic though. My sister only recently confirmed that it was a pregnancy and not just a scare. I don't agree with it, and it really upsets me, but there is nothing I can do to change it.)

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my new siggy!

We are all 5 years apart - my mom didn't plan it that way, it just happened - she had several miscarriages in between so it was just an accident - I am 35, my sister is 30 and my other sister is 25 - On the other hand - my dh has some MAJORLY wide spaced siblings - he is 41 and has a half sister who is 11!

My brother is 8 1/2 years younger than me. When I was a teenager, I hated his guts, as he was always bugging me, wanting to hang out with me, and getting in my stuff. Then we became close when I was in college and he was in grade school/middle school. We've been close ever since. Also helps that after college I moved back to town, and we still do stuff together. Didn't get married until this June at the age of 33, so we got to spend more time together until I got married than most people do.

My hubby's sister is eight years OLDER than him. However, she went to another state for college and got married right away, so he pretty much has only seen her once per year since he was 10 (and they only talk to each other on birthdays and holidays -- she and his parents leave their own lives in other states, while I live in the same city as my family and keep in constant contact with them).

One of my brother is 2 years older than me while the younger one is 6 years younger. I grew up mostly with my older brother since we are about the same age, but it does not matter much as we got older.

I am one of the middle kids out of six. I have a sister whio is 8 years older, a brother who is 6 years older, another sister who is 2 years older, then another brother who is 14 months younger, and a sister who is 4 years younger.
I would say I am closest NOW to the sister who is 4 years younger. In school, I was closest to the sister who was 2 years older.
