I didn't grow up with a dad. I'm so thankful my girls have the amazing dad they have and i have the amazing husband i have.

that's about the only difference than the # of kids.

I grew up with divorced parents, not a very stable homelife...but my husband and I have been together 16 years, and our kids have a very stable and consistant homelife.

-We make it a point to have family days where we go out together once or twice a week..With my parents I think that it was hard to accomplish that because we were all always SO busy :) 

-My family now doesn't go to church.

-We're an inter-racial family..lol

--I think those are the main ones for how my family now is different :)

Not very different at all actually! My mom stayed home with us until we were in school, same as I plan to. My dad traveled a lot for work though and my husband doesn't. I grew up in Texas, we're in Minnesota, so our family fun is slightly different :) Yeah, not a lot of differences!

My kids are very close in age where as my siblings and I are spaced out. Also my father died when I was very young and my mom never remarried so I never really had a strong male influence growing up where now my husband is in the picture so he's there for the kids and I.

Number of kids is the same but I had 2 brothers. The Biggest difference is my bros and I are all same parents and my oldest dd is from my first marriage.

my family growing up was military and we're not.
my parents weren't expressive of love verbally or physically. They didn't hug us, kiss, or say "I love you." I think that's the biggest difference - we show alot of love between each other & to our kids.
