lol Same here. I think I’m 2yrs younger than you? But some of my distant and very young relatives already have families of their own, I’m like some great aunt (maybe even great x2 idek.) :/ Kids these days.

Oh, good. I’m not the only one this has happened to. Yeah, kids these days are reproducing at an alarming rate. They should stop, they’re making all of us feel unnecessarily over the hill. (But better to be over the hill than under it. *ba dum bum*)

Oh this happened to me too! This girl I’m related to (how i don’t really know), got pregnant when she was 15! So technically I’m a grandmother. And I don’t even have a boyfriend xD

Grandmother? I can’t even comprehend how that relation would work without you having had kids yourself. Are you sure you’re not just a great great aunt like Lorraine? Are you sure you haven’t had kids you don’t know about? haha

Ordinals refer to how you and your cousins are related. Degrees of removal refer to how many generations you and your cousins are separated by. This is what I was told, I don’t know how the system works either. Congrats, kiddo.

Thanks. Still don’t get understand it though. I need a 3D color-coordinated flow chart, complete with pictures and velcro and magnets and sing-along songs (or a full blown musical).
