Cousins are those familiar people that have been part of your life forever. “A cousin is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost”. Here’s 13 Reasons Why You Your Cousins are the Best Cousins:
#1. You have a shared family history
You stem from the same roots and have a shared family tree. This will become important in later life when cousins keep the family history going.
#2. You grow up with them
They’ve been around forever, part of your life, maybe you spent summer holidays with them.
#3. They are your first friends
Friends from a young age and often friends for life too.
#4. They understand your mad family
No need to explain the wacky family traits and behaviours. They know.
#5. Their house is familiar
Like your house but a bit different.
#6. Family gatherings are more enjoyable
Having young people nearer your age makes family gatherings more fun. Someone to run around with while the adults talk.
#7. They know how weird you are
You don’t need to pretend in front of them!
#8. They teach you about the opposite sex
You learn about boy stuff from male cousins or girl stuff from female cousins. You can ask them things and not worry they will laugh (too much).
#9. They know all your embarrassing stories
And they won’t hesitate to remind you of them either…
#10. You can trust them
They won’t judge you which is great.
#11. You pick up where you left off
You may not see them for a while but it will be as if you’ve never been apart.
#12. Your cousin will always have your back
You can rely on them to defend you and vice versa.
#13. Your parents trusted your cousins
So they trusted you when you were with your cousins more than if you were with friends (little did they know!).
