Are you the only one in your family with a bunch of kids, or do your kids have lots of cousins. Do they live close by, and do you spend time together often?


I have 3 brothes and a sister, and the cousins are starting to add up. My oldest brother got married 2 years ago, and they are expecting their second, and my next brother just had thier third, and if it's up to them they are both hoping to have a few more. My third brother has one, and that will stay at one, but not by choice.
dh sister has 3 kids, and his brother has 1. Both arent' wanting to have more.

The funny thing is, because of my 5 girls, there's a lot of girl cousins, but we only have 2, the rest are all boys.


with the exception of dh's brother that lives in AZ, we all live around the same town, and with the exception of my one brother, we all go to the same church, and the kids are all in the same school so far, so our lives are very intertwined, we all have a lot of mutual friends. Most of the time it's really nice, occasionally I wish we had some distance. But it's definetly a blessing for our kids to have cousins around them.

No my kids have only have one cousin and she lives like 14 hours away. I grew up with only one brother but a ton of cousins and I wish my kids could have that experience too.

We are the only ones with more than two kids. Our sisters each have 1 boy and 1 girl for a total of 6 nieces and nephews. One set lives in the next state over, one across the country, and the other overseas. We have only met two sets twice and the other not at all.

Almost my entire family (grandparents/parents/sisters/uncles/aunts/cousins/uncles/in-laws) live within a 1 mile radius of my home. And we've all been here forever, so yes, we all have a close bond with one another. My parents live 30 seconds away, so that's a lot of fun! LOL

My kids don't have ANY cousins! Just 2nd cousins and such ...... which are all TONS older than them

My hubby is an only child and I only have one brother who doesn't have any kids.
