    Redneck Swimming Pool

    This May when school lets out, I'm moving to my mother's property. They've really let things get out of hand, so I've got lots of fixing and clean up to do between now and then. I've got to make sure it's a nice and cozy place for the kids. Not to mention sanitary. Speaking of...

    My Brother

    I have an older brother… and he's the best. He never gets mad at me, even if I know I did something stupid. He loves me and has my back. Most people think older brothers can be mean, but not all are. My brother, would murder anyone who hurt me in anyway. And I would do the same...

    than me, making him 21. He's hands down the best brother I could have ever asked for. He's my only biological sibling. Even though we live in different countries, he still keeps up with me even though I make little effort to keep up with him. It's not that I don't want to, I...

    I have a brother. I am jealous of my brother,

    but I have a good reason. He is my mothers favourite. Im sure this is all in my head and he gets away with everything because he is younger, but sometimes I get the idea that my mum loves him more. He gets away with things that I never used to et away with when I was his age...

    We are 5 years apart.

    When we were kids I didn't see him much. And when I did, I was how he took his anger out. He would throw glass at my head and rocks. He would scream, threaten me and punch me. And I remember once he pulled my hair and punched me and I ran away and started crying on the stairs...

    I'm almost like a 2nd mother to him.

    I didn't purposefully do this though. When both of your parents are working, you take on the daily chores of making sure your sibling is clean, fed, done his homework, etc. I hated the amount of work I had to do because of the situation but it brought my brother and I closer...

    I have two younger brothers,

    one is just a really good friend that me and my biological brother met in elementary school and we introduce him as family. My mother calls him her son and yells at him for asking to come over. I love my annoying, fun, bitchy, *******, kind, friendly, lovable brothers.
