Who is in your family? - December 24th 2010, 03:50 AM

As a teacher, I've noticed how many different 'types' of families there are. So I was wondering who is in yours?

Mine:
Me
Mom
Sister
2 dogs
Grandma - my mom's mom

(my dad passed away 2 yrs ago)

extended family - counting both sides: 5 uncles, 4 aunts, 27 cousins. And more, who I don't really know.


To you, everything's funny. - -
I'd give all I have, honey. - If you could stay like that.
Stay this little. - - I won't let nobody hurt you.
Just try to never grow up. - - Never grow up.

Re: Who is in your family? - December 24th 2010, 04:58 AM

My immediate family in the household are parents, myself and pets. Outside, there are near-by grandparents (mother's side) and 1-2 cousins, 1 aunt and 1 uncle. Sometimes there are 2 uncles, 1 aunt and 2-3 additional cousins depending if they're in the province or not.

For extended family, it's enormous. There are at least 8 uncles and aunts and probably double that of cousins whom I know. There are many more whom I don't know of but they happen to know me. At some weddings, there were over 40 aunts, 40 uncles, 1-2 godparents that I know of (may be more) and around 80 cousins or more. Most are in other countries or somewhere else in Canada but when they gather for one event, it's an enormous amount. I'm told there are even more who don't always attend and neither of my parents know the exact amount as it's too many for both of them to count. Plus, many extended family members know them but my parents haven't a clue who those family members are.
