MR Poll: How Many Siblings Do You Have?
Posted by: Harbourmaster
Date: July 30, 2007 07:07PM
After attending our annual family pick-nick Sunday (for my Moms side of the family ) and getting to see a bunch of my sib's that made it from out of state, I got to wondering about my friends here and so I think a poll is in order.

How many brothers and sisters do you have?

I'll go first.

I have 9 brothers & 6 sisters, and no thats not a typo!

I have 2 older sisters and I am the oldest boy.

My oldest sister is 50 and the youngest (also a girl) is 27and there are no twins.

Somewhat surprisingly, given the reckless nature of a few of my brothers, everyone is still alive...

thats not a family, thats a colony ;)

theres no "20/20" or some other news show about your family?

your poor mother, and it must have sucked for the older babysitters, err, i mean bothers/sisters

too late for this lesson i guess

oh, and have 2 younger bothers, 1 dead, 1 alive + 4 step sisters and 4 step brothers

I'm second of 6. The 5th was the only girl--she raises and shows dobermans. Probably got that ability from dealing with her brothers!

Since you mentioned it, now you have to tell us. Otherwise why did you mention it??? Especially since it seems to be "longer story" than the last line story. smiling smiley Come on!

One of two "only children"

My sister is 13 years older, and was off to college before I have any memory of her at home - we were never close until late adulthood.

As to age - I'm 59 - she's 72.

I have one sister and zero brothers. My wife is 1 of 6. I like only having one sibling and watching my wife fight w/ her siblings makes me glad.

We are most likely only going to have two kids ourselves but I sometimes wonder if it would be fun to have 3-6 children. They would ALWAYS have someone to play with or hang out with or help w/ family matters.

However, we are tired enough with one and I'm sure we are going to be even more tired in December when the second one arrives.

One sister, 3 1/2 years younger than myself.
One of my school friends moved in with us and stayed for 7 years, so he almost counts as a brother.
