While there are many inconviences of living in the same building as your extended family. Believe me there are.
But on the other hand there are many good things. One of those good things is my kids are growing up with their cousins. They have extra playmates right here in the house. They fight and argue like siblings, but also can spend an afternoon relaxing in each others company.
I didn't have cousins my age growing up, so it is really cool to see my kids and my niece and nephews together.
My niece saw me and squeeled out "Unca Niel". I hope she was trying to say "uncle" not "un-cool". Which would be totally messed up.
