What’s Your Favorite Memory With Your Siblings?
By: The Nixplay Team
Having siblings isn’t always smooth sailing. There are times when they get on your nerves and test your patience, No matter how old you get. But despite this, you have to admit that they make life way more colorful, and that you can’t imagine growing up without them by your side.
To celebrate National Siblings Day, we asked a few readers about their favorite memories with their siblings. Here’s what they said!
“They’re all about tough love.”
“I’m an only girl with three older brothers, so you can imagine how crazy it can get at home sometimes. But the great thing about growing up in a brood of boys is that though they’re all about tough love, they really dote on you. They taught me how to play basketball, and when I told them that I wanted to try out for the varsity team, they would take turns practicing with me after school. And when I played my first championship game, they made a huge banner for me and would loudly cheer every time I made a shot. It was a bit embarrassing, but looking back, it was a very sweet gesture that really showed they care.” – Chrissy, 33
“I was his best man.”
“I’ll never forget the time I stood as the best man at my younger brother’s wedding. I saw him grow up right before my very eyes, and sometimes I still think of him as a gangly, nerdy teenager. Seeing him at the altar, promising he’ll love his wife forever, really brought tears to my eyes. He turned out to be a really great guy, and I’ll always be so proud of him.” – Brian, 37
“We closed our gap at a family vacation.”
“My favorite moment with my sister was when we planned a surprise Caribean vacation for our mom, who raised us by herself. My sister and I have never been really close since there’s an eight-year age gap between us, but we collaborated for months to plan the trip–comparing destinations and plane tickets, looking for resorts, planning the itinerary, and shopping for outfits. The experience brought us closer, and now we’re planning to go to Europe, just the two of us!” – Elizabeth, 28
“We watched shooting stars together.”
“We’re 6 siblings, a mix of girls and boys. One evening when I was in grade school, my eldest brother snuck me and my siblings out to the backyard when our parents were already asleep so we can watch a meteor shower. We arranged our sleeping bags in a circle and fell asleep while counting shooting stars. I think that’s my favorite moment with my siblings.” – Jan, 25
