Do you come from a large or small extended family?

And do you like it or wish it were different?

  • Large. My mom was one of 11 kids so I have a ton of aunts, uncles and cousins and most of my cousins have a bunch of kids and some of them are grandparents already. I'm one of the youngest cousins. There's just my brother and 2 other cousins younger than me, I think. Some of my cousins were the same age as my mom and have kids that are older than me, lol.
    I LOVE it. We had a family reunion every year when I was a kid and they were so much fun. they stopped a few years ago because none of my cousins wanted to take over the hosting (I lived to far away to be able to do it). My kids have been to a few and it was always so much fun to see all my cousins' kids and mine.

  • Mine was smallish. Everyone else in my family lives across the country so we don't see them often. DH, however, has an ENORMOUS extended family and has 3 reunions a year. DH doesn't like to go to them, but I have a blast. We have been together for 10 years and people still haven't heard he got married and had a kid.

  • Mine is pretty big... well, I guess not BIG, but compared to my husband, who only knows his two sisters and their families and NO ONE else, I feel like I have a big family. My parents each had 2 siblings, one of my uncles and both my grandpas are gone now, but we do reunions every year and there are always people I barely know. I love having a big family, and I love that my aunts and uncles really value beng together so we get to see our relatives often.
