While most of us have probably joked about how great it would be to have grown up as an only child, if we are being totally honest, we know that our childhoods would have been significantly less fun without our brothers and sisters. That being said, here are 11 funny sibling quotes to share with your family during National Sibling Day on April 10. They may have given you wedgies on the regular, constantly laid the blame on you in front of your parents, and borrowed your clothes without asking... but hey, you still loved them despite all their annoying tendencies.
Even if you don't see your sibs that often these days, it is amazing how quickly you can revert into acting like a kid when you do get together. There is just something about being with your brothers and sisters that can make you feel forever young — and subsequently, forever immature.
Siblings are also the only people on the planet who can exactly relate to your upbringing, your parents, and your entire family dynamic. Blood runs thick, and considering that your sibling comes from the same two people you come from, this holds especially true. Share these quotes with them on National Sibling Day.
