I recently read about the world's largest
. They are Jim Bob and Michelle
Duggar. And their children! Wow. So many kids. And —
get this! — all
the kids' names start with “J.” The family drinks
liters of milk a day. And
they do laundry times a month.
My family isn't so . Just my two parents and an older
brother and sister. My
mother is a bank clerk. She is a good , so I love talking
to her. My dad
works for a newspaper. My lives with us, too. She used to
be a teacher.
And — big bonus for me — she's a great cook.
My older is named Tom. After university, he
moved to Brazil. He teaches English there. My sister, Taylor,
went abroad after university, too. She to
Italy. Next year, she's going to marry an Italian guy. So it's
just me at home now.
Maybe I'll get married and have a large
family. But eighteen kids — no way!
