Inevitably in getting to know someone new I get asked a question I always dread. "How many brothers and sisters do you have?" Now for those of you that know me, I'm pretty much an open book and will answer just about any question you ask me. This one, however, is complicated. I have multiple parental units who, themselves have been married multiple times so there are steps and halves and some that they have not come up with a word for. To me, they are my brothers and sisters period. We don't really use those other defining words. What's blood got to do with it anyway?
The Parental Units:
So now for the brothers and sisters part (And you thought the ABC series had drama!)
I'll go chronologically by age...
Okay, that makes nine of us unless of course, you count Claire's kids. Karen and Paul. I really like both of them but since I've only met them a time or two and really have no contact at all with them, let's just let that one go.
Here are a couple more photos for you...
