  • Definitely my mother's!

  • Both. I adore all of my family. I grew up in a neighborhood of cousins that were on my mom's side, but we went to my dad's parents house every Saturday and they all kind of lived in the same area too. Even the cousin's I didn't care for as kids (because they were a bit wild) are amazing people to get together and hang out with now as adults.

  • My mom is an only child- I was really close to her parents, but now that they are gone (my grandma died when I was nine, my grandpa when I was eighteen) I don't have any family on my mom's side. I'm close to many of my cousins on my dad's side.

  • I am much much closer to my dad's family, I am always hanging out with my cousins from his side.I hardly ever see anyone from my mom's side and usually if I do see them it is just at walmart or something like that.

  • Neither. It is sad really. My mom moved away from her family because they are mentally unstable. My dads family is all dead, so no extended family for me.

  • I should say that we are close with my husbands family. We are closer to his mom's family. We see them several times a year. His dad's family we see once every couple of years.

  • Mom's. I wasn't raised around my dad.

  • my dads mom and dad live a few doors down from us--its one of the reasons we got this house...I have always been very close to them, sometimes me and my kids still stay the night with them when my husband is away.....but they are rally the only ones on his side that I see besides on holidays and such.....on my moms side she has 5 brothers and sisters...and I seen all of them atleast once a week ( as well as her mom and step-dad) ...and I talk to one of my aunts and my grandma pretty much ev eryday.....

    I guess I am closer to my dads mom and dad...but overall I am very attached to both sides !

  • When I was a kid I was close to both sides, but now I'd have to say neither. I'm not around any of them enough to feel close to them. I love them, but just don't see them. I see moms side a couple more times a year than dads though.
