Siblings

One thing I never plan to do is have an only child. Only because my own experiences teaches me that that would be robbing them of the best relationships of their life. There's no one else in the world like your siblings. I mean, we all need to talk massive sh*t about our parents at some point, right? And I wouldn't ever let anyone outside of my family slam my relatives.

My sister and I have literally (and I do mean literally in its truest sense) slapped each other in the face thousands of time throughout the course of our childhood and yet here we are, texting all day, every day. My relationship with my brother is different given how he's so much younger and a different gender but it's so  perfect because of that. I've never laughed harder than I have with my brother and I consider him one of my very, very best friends. 

They are the absolute loves of my life. I am truly only me because of them.

And in the words of Forrest Gump: That's all I have to say about that.

Just some Friday musings, guys. Have a great weekend!

I know what you mean. I was an only child for 10 years, and then I got a younger brother!!! So, I know how it ios with siblings...(with & without)And, we still fight and things just mend away on their own!
Lovely post!

Siblings sure make growing up fun. Don't think I'd ever want an only child either.

There's pluses and minuses for everything. I'm an only child and when I was younger, it never really bothered me. Now as I'm older, I do wish I had that special connection that siblings have. Both my boyfriend and I are only children.

I would not trade the relationship I have with my siblings for anything.

i don't have the best relationship with my brothers right now (and living on the other side of the world doesn't help) and i don't have sisters really, so while i can't completely relate, growing up with my brothers and occasionally my half sisters was absolutely vital to my happiness and well being - 100% made me who i am. i only hope for a better relationship for my future kiddos, but there is no chance i'm just having one. that shit cray.

To each their own. I have met a few only children who love it and never wished that they had siblings.

It is lovely that you all are so close. My brother and I growing up had great times together, and our crew of 3 kiddos have lots of adventures.

So, with the theme of your post, I can't wait for you to write someday about your 6 no maybe 7 kids. Lots of brother and sister stories then! haha.
