My boys are total opposites. My 19 month old has Athsma, bronchitis and is always sick. He looks big strong and healthy and has lovely dark tanned skin but its very deceptive because he has been sick for about 7 months straight. My 3.5 yr old is scrawny and pale and never ever gets sick from anything.

Then there is their attitudes, my youngest is very very active and independent and loving to everyone while older boy is lazy but has good concentration and can sit still for hours.

But doesn’t tend to act loving unless he wants something or is attention seeking.

Younger boy is the most stubborn child ever while older boy

Is a total sook and fake cries over silly things.

Younger boy loves water (swimming) and hates pasta

Older boy hates water and loves pasta

Anyone else have opposite children lol? Even their daycare has said they can’t believe they are brothers they act so differently

  • my boys are total opposites


  • Yeap I have 3 kids my oldest and youngest are very similar but the middle is just so different. Teachers often are surprised they are from the same family


  • Oldest is quiet and reserved, youngest is loud and energetic


  • Not opposite children, an opposite sibling – it’s hard to believe we are related.


  • haha… it’s interesting to watch the uniqueness isn’t it?


  • I have non identical twin boys who couldn’t be more different. They are physically completely opposite (pale/olive skinned, brown/blue eyes, solid/slight build, 4 cm difference in height). One is a good eater, the other picks and is fussy. One is quiet, the other outgoing. They couldn’t be more different than if they were a girl and a boy!
