Mer has 5 siblings, 3 of whom are married. All together there are 5 grandchildren in this family. Meriah kan?
If you've been following my blog, you would know that Raees loves playing with his older cousins. With cousin Rizq Raiyan who is about Raees' age, they are bound to be best of pals when they grow up too.
Now, let's take a look at my family...
I have 3 siblings and I am the only one who is married which makes Raees the one and only grandchild.
At the rate things are going, it doesn't look like Raees will be having cousins on my side of the family anytime soon. Why? My twin brothers, who are in their mid 30s, are so very single!
Naturally the whole family is concern. What makes me MORE worried is how the future hari raya will be like. If a child were to choose which kampung they wanna balik to for raya and he has these options:
a) spend the whole raya, day and night, with his cousins
b) raya with adults (plus his - future - siblings that he meets everyday)
...isn't it obvious which he would prefer?? Help!
