18 Photos Showing How Warm and Funny Relationships Between Siblings Can Be
Living with a brother or a sister means sharing chocolate bars, fighting for your favorite toys, and thinking that “mom loves him more.” Growing up with a brother or a sister means learning to be responsible and compromise. Having a brother or a sister means having a person that can always support you or even replace one of your parents.
People from this compilation know for a fact that having a sibling can be fun, difficult, but never boring. And in light of this, the Bright Side team was happy to look back into our own warm childhood memories.
1. “My friend’s 6-year-old daughter dressed her 1-year-old daughter for the winter, and she’s just so proud of her outfit.”
2.“My son seeing his newborn sister for the first time”

5. “My little brother was too lazy to clean up Monopoly so he threw it in the trash.”
6. “My sister...is SPOILED. They turned my room into her little loft.”
7. However, when your younger sibling is old enough, you can use it to your advantage.
8. “Many people think I’m a mathematician but I’m not. Pi day, 3.14 (March 14), is the day when my brother and I were adopted. We were happy that we got into a wonderful family together.”
