After looking at my post yesterday, I realized there may be some confusion as to how many nieces and nephews I really have. I'm just going to say this - a lot. But some of them are great nieces and nephews that I just call my nieces and nephews because it's easier. So, I'm going to give you a breakdown.
I have two sisters - Cindy and Cathy.
Cindy had four kids -
Nena (let me clarify - Nena is Andrews ex - but she is awesome and I still count her as a niece and always will)
This whole group is what I call my 1st group. They are all in their 20's. That's 4 nieces and 1 nephew so far.
Amanda has one son - Desmond (Desi)
Andrew has one daughter - Kylie
Alica has two sons and one daughter - Matthew, Emma, and John (and BTW supplies almost all of my phone pictures!)
Tally: Nieces 4, Nephews 1, Great Nieces 2, Great Nephews 3
Cathy has five kids
Yes, ALL boys - poor girl.
David is 18, so he gets counted in the 1st group. The rest are all in what I lovingly call 'group 2'. Way younger than group 1 basically.
Are you keeping track? Now I have 4 nieces, 6 nephews, plus the 2 great nieces, and 3 great nephews.
Erik's brother and his wife Shannon have three kids
They are also part of group 2. Two more nieces and one more nephew.
So, when I say "my niece" or "my nephew" I'm talking about any one of the combined total of all my nieces, nephews, and grands.
And in case you lost count - 6 nieces, 7 nephews, 2 grand nieces, 3 grand nephews.
Yes, 18 total.
I think I just confused myself!
Until next time ~ Kris
