Depends. What is your definition of normal?

And of course, there is the sheep grandfather: he was taking the photo.

I think a pretty good definition of normal would be: "when one walks around with their family in the Netherlands and nobody says doe even normaal!"

One of them should be an apple (ik ben een appel, en jij?)

The fact that we have to ask ourselves this question is not a great start...

can it also be said as , zijn wij een normale gezin

Zijn wij een normaal gezin? gezin is a het word.

Gezin refers to the family of your parents and siblings, familie means either gezin or your whole family, including grandparents, greatgrandparents, cousins, nieces etc.

I didn't realize the difference between gezin and familie until just reading your post. Thank you.
