My husband and I have a pretty “young” family. We have been married for just shy of three years, our oldest will be two in a week, and we are trying to gear through what traditions we would like to create as a family.

I have cousins and more cousins, busting from the seams. I loved it, most of the time. I always thought I wanted four kids of my own. Not as big as my parents had but not too small either. I thought it would be perfect.
