Hi Guys, I just want to know how many are you in your family, either you belong in a small, medium or large family. For us, we are only five in the family. It includes my mom, dad, me - I'm the eldest daughter, my sister and my brother. I think we belong in a medium size of family. My husband's family compose of his dad, mom, her older sister and my husband is the youngest in their family. They belong in a small family I think. You guys, Kindly share yours. Thanks.

Hi! We're six in the family all in all, if you include my parents. I have an elder sister and two younger brothers. As for my husband, he's got two other brothers, so along with his parents, that makes five. Both families could probably be considered medium-sized. My husband and I will also be a family unit a couple of months from now. We're expecting our first baby this June. :D

Hi sis, wow that's great news....I supposed both of you are very happy. Wish to have babies soon. Keep us posted on your journey of being a mom. Sometimes I imagine myself of being a mom also, but then I think time will come for us to have that little angel such as yours. Congratulations and goodluck. Thanks.

Small family. and we're not very closeto our relatives since we live so far apart. It's lonely not to see a lot of people. But it's better than a big family but not harmonious. :-)

hi theresaaiza. Yes you are right, it doesn't need to be a big family in order to be called a happy and harmonius family. It really depends on the family, whether big or small but the important thing is communicating with one another and you are a team as a family. Try to call your relatives once in a while to let them feel that you are not forgetting them. Remember it doens't need that you always see each other to feel that you are close, even small things like calling them just say hello and how's they're doing, it makes a feeling of enjoyment to them. Thanks for sharing....

yes, you are right. I am really guilty for not communicating with them. Sometimes, its because I don't weant them to think I only called to ask for money sometimes they think that way and won't welcome your cal very much:-(

I think I belong to a large family - there's 6 of us including my parents. I have 2 brothers and a sister. I actually like the size of my family. Although we grew up "sharing stuff" especially food (until now, even though we can afford a bar of chocolate for each member, we prefer sharing it with at least one member instead). It's also good to travel places with such a big group :) Thanks for the response on my discussion!

Hi there. Sometimes I dream of a big family but my mother has difficulty in giving birth from our youngest brother so the doctor decided to tell my parents that the three of us is enough. Yes same of us too, when we have any kind of food we tend to share it and share things. Sometimes we fight with each other but later on, we will be playing again. Even now, we shared things but not just like before, because I recently get married and some things changed for us. But we regularly visit them from time to time and they visit me as well. Wish to have a family also of my own, hope to bless us babies soon. Thanks for sharing.

theres 5 of us in my family, im living at home with my mum, dad, and my 2 brothers, so i think its a sort of medium size of a family, and then we are really close to my other relatives, especially my mums side of the family :)

Hi xhaylea. Yes, we are same in numbers in the family. Yes it is important to be always caring for each other even to your relatives, that's one way of showing them your closeness.Just continue what you have been doing and you will see time will come that you will be all a happy family. Thanks for sharing....
