Not talking crazy big like 19 kids and counting big.....but bigger than the average family of 4. Do I consider my family of 6 big...Yes !!
The world is set up for the perfect little family of four....tables at restaurants, hotel rooms...most cars are made for the smaller family...I'm sure there are more examples that I can not think of at this late hour.
That being said the pros of a big family out weigh all the semantics.
I am friends with this great family that has 5 siblings....that are all adults, and they all love to be together so much....recently their grandma died and I watched a couple of their kids so they could go to the viewing.....as the 4 sisters left I felt glad that they had each other...and glad for my kids that they have each other.
My 3 older kids are visiting their cousins in oregon for the week...so I am a parent of one....it has been soooooooo many years since that happened. It is a bit too quiet on one hand and on the other it is pretty amazing...and super easy to only have one child to worry about. I missed the kids after they were gone half of a day....sheesh.
To late ....must sleep...
