    Complete opposite of my mother and my uncle Thomas: he’s older than her, but still acts like a goof ball. I think the last two times Thomas showed his compassionate side to his younger sister was when she was diagnosed with cancer and then died from it.

    Forever, Phil. I’m 51, and my two still-living younger brothers are 49 and 47, respectively — but they’re STILL my little brothers!

    Yep. That is how it is. No matter how old one is, one is the older or younger brother or sister.

    You actually charged other boys a nickel to watch Ellie dress? You really were a little demon, weren’t you, Phil?

    I’m just shy of 48, my brothers are 37 and 42. And they are still my little brothers, even if they are both mostly grey. (Heh. Only my hairdresser knows… ;-)

    used to hate my sister intoducing me as her baby brother even after I turned 50, but now I miss it because she’s gone

    My 3-years-younger brother always introduced me as his “older sister” even in our 50’s.


    Sometime in our late 40’s, my only TWO-years-younger sister got quite petulant when a friend of hers, after meeting me, asked, “So… which of you is older?”


    It never ends.

    It was my dad’s funeral today – he was 95 and still talked about being the baby of his family.

    I love to introduce my sister who is 10 1/2 years older than me as “my older sister who looks younger than me” because she looks so glamorous – at 82.

    Always!!! Live with it, and be happy she’s still there to keep you straight.

    Yep…I have a sister who’s 5 and a half years older than me and still brings up stuff I did when I was 5. I’m 30 now!

    I’m 52 and my soon-to-be 50 year-old brother will ALWAYS be my little bother!
