My Family

What itís all about?

The Family By Erma Bombeck

We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together.

The Smalls

Families are like fudge Ė mostly sweet with a few nuts. My family is far from typical, yet we are perfectly normal. Here are some quick and dirty facts on my fudge.

  • I have one dad, but I have two moms.
  • I met my biological mom and two older sisters when I was 16.
  • I have four sisters and one brother. They're all half siblings but Iím complete with them all.
  • I was raised as the oldest but Iím also the baby.
  • Since I have three ďparents,Ē I technically have six sets of grand parents, but I have only met half of them.
  • I am the first, but not the last, grandchild to go to college in my intermediate family.

Arenít we cool?
