How did a family member shock you

sofatutor magazine student

Although families, especially large families, are often chaotic and annoying each other, it is precisely the little quirks that make relatives so lovable. Here are twelve things that anyone who comes from a large family knows.

1. Noise level. You're used to loud noises because it's always LOUD.

2. At family gatherings, it is extremely difficult to talk to everyone in the family. There are just too many.

3. Don't move. Once you've got a seat at the dining table, you stay seated, no matter what. Who knows when a chair will be available next time.

4. “What? Are you already driving? The last time we saw each other, you were only eight years old! ”Everyone is getting older without anyone noticing.


5. Taking family photos is pure chaos. Where did they all go?

10. Stories from the past always work! No matter how many times you've heard them, they never get old.


11. At some point you can no longer keep up with recognizing names. What is the name of cousin Judith's child again?

12. At the end of family gatherings, you spend at least an hour saying goodbye. And you still wonder if you haven't forgotten someone.
