It’s all relative!

My friend and I spent hours trying to find a word that means aunts and uncles combined. Like “siblings” does for sisters and brothers. Like “Parents” does for moms and dads. We thought “If only we could invent a word for them, we’d feel so proud to add a word to the world’s lexicon and the dictionnary. We can’t believe no one has done it yet!”

I then asked my 13 year for help. She said dryly  “um, how about relatives”.

My friend and I looked at each other and felt quite stupid.

“And the children shall lead the way….”
