Scheimer, Deborah <Deborah.Scheimer@...>
When I was growing up, we called my parents' best friends Uncle and
Aunt. Also, my husband's first cousins are very close with our family
and we get together often in large family gatherings. My children call
them Uncle and Aunt and their kids call us the same. We all talked about
it after the first children of that generation were born and it just
seemed less confusing for the children to all call each other cousins
but all the adults Aunt and Uncle.
