There's a lot to be said for not just them, but only-child families, too.
I'm in a family of five. When my folks send me something, it goes through a kind of 'echo chamber' where I often get it back again.
I spent a couple of hours cleaning out my mailbox when I got back from my trip. I mostly did pruning of old things, and rearranging, so that my IMAP po-box wouldn't get over-full (I've got a 100mb limit there, and I was often getting up into the eighties).
After the clean job, it was down to eleven mb.
One week's worth of giant attached messages bounced back and forth a bit?
Back up to sixty mb.
