Life With Brothers As We Know It

I can guarantee you, it's never boring.

Life With Brothers As We Know It

I am the oldest of four. I have two brothers and one sister. Growing up with brothers is anything but boring especially if you have brothers like mine.

1. Burping contests

You can't have brothers and not have burping contests at the dinner table and it does not matter if you have guest over or not. They will try to burp the loudest, burp sentences, and burp the A,B,C's.

2. Fart jokes

I have heard my fair share of fart jokes and reasons as to why we fart. The best was when my brother, Ben, declared that he thought we farted because stink bugs crawl up our butts. This is what I live with.

3. You get shot at every day

It doesn't matter that my brothers are now teenagers. I am constantly getting shot at with Nerf guns. I thought we were adults but apparently we will never grow up. I don't even live in the same house as my brothers and they still shoot me.

4. You are their personal punching bag

I was my brothers personal punching bag, wrestling opponent, and someone to pick on. I swear they would do it just to hear my sister and I scream. We also got some hits in too. Somehow though we were never allowed to win.

5. Mud

With brothers, mud is always a factor. When we were younger we would have mud fights much to our mother's dismay. Now we have mudfest. With boys, there is bound to be a mess.

6. They will end up being your best friends

All in all, though I wouldn't trade a moment with my brothers for more sisters. They are my own personal bodyguards. They are the ones I go to when I need to talk something through. I love my brothers.
