Poll: What’s Your Family Like?

No matter what your family’s like, one thing is certain: Yours is unique! Whether it’s large or small, spread out across the country or all in the same town, the differences are worth celebrating–they help shape who we are!

Do you have lots of pets? Tons of people over at your house during the holidays? Are you the oldest, middle or youngest child? We’d love to hear what your family’s like and what you love about what sets your family apart.

Answer the polls below then let us know more in the comments!

    I’m the oldest of two kids {including myself}.
    We have four dogs. One Golden Retriever, One Chihuahua, and Two Morkies {Yorkie/Maltese}.
    Our grandparents literally live behind us in another subdivision. Most of our family is within 2 hours. One of my cousins live in Virginia, about 6 hours away and another lives in Texas, about 12 hours away.

    I am the middle child of 3 kids, the youngest being 5 and the oldest being 15. It is really hard being the middle child because you are expected to be a good role model, but also expected to follow in the older sibling’s footsteps.

      On my mom’s side, all of the family lives here in North Carolina. But on my dad’s side, they live in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and California. So, we live pretty far away from all of them.

    I’m the youngest(13) and my older sister is 16. My dad was an only child so there are no family members left on his side of the family. My mom has 4 siblings- two brothers and two sisters. I have six cousins, (how do I explain this…) Three of them are 8 and three of them are 6. It’s weird because each family has a kid that’s eight and a kid that’s six. My sister and I are the oldest in our family, therefore the babysitters during family get togethers 🙂 We all live pretty close together.I love my cousins 😀

    I’m the oldest of 2 and I’m also the oldest of all of the grandkids on both sides. My grandparents on my mom’s side live right around the corner and I’m very close to them. The rest of my family lives in surrounding towns less then an hour away and my great grandparents and great aunt in uncle live in Portugal and the Azores. I have a cat and a dog but I’m constantly at my grandma’s house where we have goats, chickens, ducks, quails, doves, rabbits, a whole bunch of cats, and two dogs. I grew up around animals so I love being with them.

    I’m the youngest of three sisters, though I have a younger half-brother. He lives with his mom, though. My mom’s living relatives, we never really know where they are (it’s kinda complicated). As far as my step-dad’s they live in Virginia while I live in Ohio. Most of my dad’s relatives live in the same city and surrounding areas as we do. I have two cats (love them!) and some fish. My family’s kinda strange, but I love them, too!

    I have four siblings and I’m one of the middle kids, although, since it’s only my younger sister and I living at home, I’m kind of the oldest. My parents, my little sister and I live in southern Oregon, my older brother and his family live in Minnesota, and my older sister and almost everyone on my dad’s side of the family live in the Portland area of Oregon. Most of my mom’s family live in Arizona.
    We have three horses, two cats, and a dog who thinks she’s a person. (:

    I am the oldest sister to one brother. I live with my mom and step dad and our two dogs a basenji and a karelian bear dogXD
    i have cousins and an uncle near seattle where i used to live, more cousins and an aunt and uncle in idaho, grandparents and distant relatives in topeka kansas and step family all in northern new york and B.C.
    all of us (not including step family) used to live in seattle together until my parents moved me and my brother down here to texas and then everyone else spread out hehe:)
    While im actually very close to my step family, i rarely get to see my cousins in idaho, probably because they are my on my fathers side, and he stays distant to me….

    I’m the only child. Most people say I’m lucky, but I rather have a brother or sister! I’m hoping my mom will get “accidentally” pregnant, even I’d be 19 years older than the baby. But she refuses to have another kid. So it’s just my mom, my dad and I. I have a cat that I’ve had since I was four and a dog I got when I was eleven. I have a huge extended family. Most live in North Carolina too but in different cities.

    They have nine cats. Indoor cats. NINE.

    We live in Texas, everyone else is either in California or Louisiana, with some distant relatives spread out everywhere else.
