Growing up with 3 male cousins certainly had its advantages. We were all quite close in ages and it was like growing up with 3 big brothers. As I was an only child until I was six my cousins became the siblings I so desperately wanted, and my aunt and uncle became like second parents. Everyone on mum's side of the family are tall. I'm nearly 5'8" (I still don't do centimeters) and all of my cousins were well over 6' by the time we were in our teens. They were great protectors, which came in very handy as teenagers.
