Jess grew up in Oklahoma before moving to New York to become a writer. She has a cat named Agnes.
I cannot tell you how many fights my older brother and I got into while we were growing up. Things could get pretty rough when we were at our worst, but we managed to avoid having to rush to the hospital, at least.
After every argument, my mom would just shake her head and tell us that we’d be each other’s best friend someday, which we would obviously balk at for being impossible. Of course, she was totally right!
It’s like we survived a war together and even have our own way of talking to each other, referencing things only we know about, which can get hilariously confusing when we’re around the rest of our family.
Take a look below to see some brothers and sisters sharing their silliest sibling tales from childhood.
Do you have any battle stories you look back on that still make you laugh? Let us know in the comments and SHARE with your friends (and siblings)!
“My mom was always really strict with buying sugary cereal, so my little brother and I were raised on Cheerios, Corn Flakes, etc. Whenever there was the rare box of Cap’n Crunch in the cupboard, we would literally fight for the last bowl.” – emmacwin
“When I was teenager, and I had a toddler brother, I had a lock put on my door to stop him from constantly barging in. Little brother ended up kicking my door so persistently that he broke it. I still won’t let him forget it now he’s 15 and complains about our 9-year-old brother not leaving him alone.” – BewilderedFingers
“When I was about five years old, I got my boots stuck in deep mud and couldn’t move. After unsuccessfully attempting to pull me out, my sister walked home to get help. I waited in the rain for an hour and no one came, so I pulled my feet out of the boots and walked home barefoot. When I got home I found my sister watching TV. She had apparently forgotten about me.” – atari_lynx
“My little brother put peanut butter in my ears while we were sleeping in a fishing boat offshore with no powerful water stream to remove it. I got him back with a squirt gun filled with cayenne pepper and water right in the face though.” – Aves-Law
