Do you have a big family?

I only have two kids so far so we are not a big family. However, our whole family is pretty large. My dad is 1 of 6, my mom is 1 of 5, and my cousin has 11 children. DH's family is pretty large too.

Both of my parents are one of 3.  I have a few cousins.  I've only met my one of my uncles a few times throughout my life, and I wouldn't know three of my cousins if I walked by them.   I think my FIL has one sister and MIL has about 5 brothers or something like that.  I've only met two of DH's cousins, the only two he really talks too, and now only 1 from a falling out between families last Christmas.  My DH had nothing to do with it, my MIL stuck her nose where it don't belong at the wrong time, so now that cousin won't give this half of her family the time of day.

I only have one LO so far and we will probably stop at two. DH has 4 half brothers, two on each side. I have 3 siblings. So, overall, we have a big family!

I have 3 kids. I grew up with just my mom and sister. Mom is 1 of 3 and dad is 1 of 5.  Our get togethers include my mom, grandma, uncle, sister and my neice and nephew. So no not really big family.
