It’s National Siblings Day! You know, that time when you take a second to reminisce about all the things you and your siblings got away with…and all the things you didn’t. To get in the spirit, we want to share a few of our own stories with you!
“Growing up, my great grandma and grandpa used to call me and my sister on our birthdays. They would pretend to be a radio station and act like they were wishing us a happy birthday on air! It was always really funny. My sister and I continue the tradition with each other every year!” – Courtney
“My mom bought me a voice recorder set when I was six, along with a couple of blank cassette tapes so I could record myself singing Whitney Houston. Once I ran out of tapes, I grabbed the next best thing: my brother’s Boyz II Men tape. My brother now has his very own rendition of ‘Water Runs Dry,’ complete with an interlude of his little sister singing the wrong words.” – Rashida
“My family was in Orlando for my dad’s work conference. We were super dressed up for my dad’s presentation—I was in a suit and my little sister was in a dress. While we were walking to the conference, she pushed me into the pool!” – Noah
“One day, my brother and I decided we wanted to start a lemonade stand. The only catch? It was February. But we didn’t care. So we made our lemonade and anxiously waited for customers. We waited. And waited. And waited. Turns out the demand for lemonade isn’t that high in the winter. At the end of the day, we only had one customer: our mom.” – Melanie
“Some people think the middle child gets overlooked in a family, but for me, growing up as the middle child with an older brother and younger sister meant I got the best of both worlds. I got to dig in the mud and play trucks or tag along with the big kids alongside my brother. But then I could act like the boss or do girly stuff like play dolls or dress-up with my sister.” – Sara
“When my brother and I were kids, we would dress up as our favorite wrestlers (Bret “The Hitman” Hart for me and Shawn “The Heartbreak Kid” Michaels for my brother). Our parents would play their walk-up music as we hammed it up before we got down to “wrestling.” They were careful to make sure we kept it as fake as it is on TV, but one night I miscalculated when giving my brother a karate-style kick to the jaw. Three stitches and one knocked-out tooth later, our wrestling days were over.” – Zach
“I am an only child, but I did have an imaginary brother named George.” – Travis
