Wow. This leaves a whole lot of room for interpretation!
My family of origin: Ma , Pop, Brother.
I generally think about my extended family when I think family. We saw a lot of my maternal extended family when I was growing up: Grandma Superior, 2 aunts, 3 uncles, and 4 cousins. And my paternal extended family: aunt, five cousins and all their families!
And then of course I married into a big family: two mothers-in-law and two fathers-in-law, 9 siblings-in-law some with spouses and/or kids.
And how can I forget- my Punkerella!
Pictures: my brother and I with our 4 maternal cousins from many (many) years ago; my brother and some of the huz's siblings at our wedding; and Punky
