Kids' Family

Most of Iraqi families consist of more than 10 persons and it depends for family and for begetting, Saadi is 8 years old lives with big family made of 28 persons, Saadi's family live in house has 7 rooms, one room for his grandfather and grandmother because the house for his grandfather one room for Saadi's family for him, his mother, his father, his brother and sister, one room for guests, one room for his married uncle and his family, one room for his another married uncle and his family, one room for his unmarried three aunts, one room for his unmarried four uncles.
Adding for seven rooms they have kitchen, toilets and room for their stuff, Saadi spends his day playing with his cousins in side the house and from time to time his grandfather gathers him and his cousins to tell them tales and old stories sometimes funny stories and play with them sometimes teach them how to play.
The grandfather doesn't work he is 65 years old but Saadi's father and his uncles work together to support this big family, when one of his uncles is free plays with Saadi and his cousins and also take the kids to the park, the women in this house take care of cleanings, washings and cooking.
The men in this house just work to make money to feed family and other family's need, they are not rich and also they run their self by their self, this the situation many Iraqi family live with.
Kids' voices are overflowing this house day time and night time is calm because all kids in bed now, in the morning all kids be gathered to feed them then leave them to play.

When they buy something for any child they have to buy for all children (you know the kids) when they give chocolate or candy for one child they have to give for all children (you know the kids).
I know Saadi he is very polite child and good also he is clever in school, his younger brother 8 years old very funny and nice, I like them, when I visit them the kids come around me because his father my friend.
This house kind of full of love and fun.
