HUGE age gap between siblingsWatch
Personally wouldn't enjoy it if my mum had another kid now.....
my experience with this is that when you're growing up there's distance and misunderstanding due to the age difference and it kind of sucks but when you then get to my age you come to appreciate having someone experienced to speak to and look up to. as soon as mid adolescence set in i went from being indifferent with my sister to closer than i am with anyone else.
My boyfriend is 21 and his siblings are in their late 30s, so they were 15/16 when he was a baby. He didn't mind it as much because they have moved out by the time he was 8. But then that meant it was just him and his mother so he had to do loads of the housework with no siblings to help spread the workload :P
Problem solved, simples
Oh yeah, and my friend is younger than her niece because of this kind of occurence.
I suppose i do have a different kind of relationship with my brother and sister who are a lot older than me, but that's fine. Just like you have a different relationship with your siblings / cousins / friends / family friends / parents, but you can still love them all
A friend of mine who is about to turn 20 has just found out that her mother is pregnant, and I was wondering if anybody has a similar experience. What is it like to have a sibling much younger/older than you?
yeah the age gap is not good. she was used to getting the attention from my parents until i arrived and hated me since. although she loves my younger brother because they got a common interest in hating me.
she told me on many occasions that i need to die and blah blah, now i moved to cardiff 300 miles away. she's happy now
