I read this outloud to dh and bf,
Both laughed out loud.
Then DH said, "when you have a duplex adn there are 9 cars parked in front of one side and 5 more on the other side and about 15 kids regularly in the yard..."
The laughter continued (there is a duplex that is PRECISELY that just down the street from us and it just so happens it is owned by a large Russian "family" -I say "family" because it's all of the extended family as well).
We had another family that lived with us-several over the years actually. We're down to 5 people in our home. But at the highest there was 12 and 5 of those were adults.
