Nieces and Nephews

Yesterday we were discussing our names and nieces and nephews. I made the comment that I had oodles of nieces and nephews but had never counted them. So, I counted them last night and I came up with thirty nieces and thirty nephews. They actually came out to an even number. That's my nieces and nephews and grand nieces and grand nephews. That number is even more than I envisioned. I see different ones at family reunions and get togethers, but never all at the same time, How many nieces and nephew do you have? Do any of you have more than I have?

@MALUSE I know people who have no siblings and I believe they have closer friends than those who have siblings, so maybe that makes up for it.

@honeywel I Only have 4 cousins and their several children. My mother only had one brother and my dad was an only child. So I fall short there.

Than, you likely have more time to spend with them, That's good. I think smaller families are closer.

That's pretty easy. I knew I had many, but didn't realize how many until I counted.

I don't have more than you that is for sure. I have 1 from my full brothers and 6 from my half sibling. But I have several who are not blood-related since one of my half brothers was married 5 times but had no biological children but his wives had children which would add another 6. lol Family is complicated!! As far as great I have I have 11 and 2 great great. (all biological)

I also have two step brothers and a step sister that I didn't count since they are not blood related. Families can be complicated.

If you have siblings you will most likely have many nieces and nephews.

it's hard to keep up with as they get older and spread out. As I said some of mine are great nieces and nephews. But they are mostly still in the state, although I seldom see most of them.

i seldom see most of them, but I keep up with them through my sisters and brother. We always pass on the news in the family.

I never counted everyone since the nephews and nieces started to have children. I don't think I have that many.

I hadn't counted until I thought about it and realized i didn't know the number. I was surprised to count up to 60 and I know of one other that's on the way now.
