    Default How many siblings do you have?

    I was curious how many siblings everyone has...at first I was gonna ask how many siblings people who are homeschooled have, cuz I had an hypothesis that maybe people who are homeschooled have more siblings since school is so expensive but then decided to change the poll.
    I have 3 sisters...how about you?
    Do you wish to have had more/less? Why?

    EDIT: I realized the numbers are a bit off and I can't change them but it's okay.

    I have five younger sisters and they can be a pain sometimes (especially when I'm studying) but I can't imagine life without even one of them.

    This is a difficult poll to answer. I had a brother who was 2 yrs younger than me, but he died when I was 7 and he was 5. So I have been an only child most of my life, but I still remember him. So do I answer 1 or none? For those of you that grew up in large families, I'm very jealous! I wanted to grow up and have a "brady bunch" family with 6 kids, so they wouldn't have to be alone like I was. But that wasn't in the cards for me, but I'm very happy with the two I do have! Although, they each probably wish they didn't have the other one around all the time!

    I have 3. One brother who is 42 and two sisters aged 44 and 47. All older than me. We all got on relatively well when we were younger that I can remember. I was the only child at home by the time I was 11.

    I'm an only child... and I have only one child, with no plans for more! I never minded being an only child, I had a lot of friends and cousins nearby growing up so I don't recall feeling lonely. The best part was when they left, I could have my space/quiet afterwards. I'm still that way, I like when the house is empty for a while. My son is great with kids. All of his friends little brothers love him, and he is patient and good with them. I think when you know they are only around temporarily you like them more

    I have one brother who is two years younger than me. I would have liked to have a sister, but I am happy as is.

    We are homeschooled but we do not have a large family. However, I do know many homeschool families that are large. I am not sure about that hypothesis though.

    The doctors said my mother could never have children, but she gave birth (naturally) to two.

    6 sibs here. I have four brothers and two sisters. I'm the youngest boy, which, to make matters worse, is sandwiched between the girls. We all have the same initials too.

    @Waldorfteacher. That would be awesome to have that many siblings. I'm used to large families, so I would like to have my own extra-large one someday

    I had two sisters, lost one a year ago, so only have one now. If I could have had it my way I would have come from a larger family.
