Day 28 – What size family do you come from, what size family do you want, and why?
I come from a pretty big family. I’m the oldest of four. I grew up with a huge assortment of cousins, who were like extra siblings. Maybe it’s southern culture…but we were always close to our aunts/uncles and our extended family. Hell, we often time made up aunts and uncles!
Melissa is the youngest child. She probably couldn’t name all of her aunts and uncles (her dad is one of like 12) and she sure as heck couldn’t name all of her cousins!
It’s funny that I’m the oldest, she’s the youngest and we had completely different childhoods, but we wholeheartedly agree on only having ONE child!
People give us a lot of flack, saying it unfair to Loren to not have any siblings blah blah blah. We don’t agree. There are lots of “only child” scenarios out there and they are A-OK!
