I had my daughter at 17 (she is now 6), Had my stillborn son at 22, and my son at 23 (he is 8 1/2 months) My bf and I are currently trying to decide whether or not we want to start trying for another baby now or we want to wait a little while longer. Did you put much thought into how the distance in your childrens age or just have them when the time felt right for you?
I originally (a few years ago) thought i wanted two kinda close in age and then wanted to wait until i was about 28 and have a third then a 4th at thirty, so that my first two would of been 13 and 11 when i had my final child, It didn't end up that way lol

No, my youngest DD was a surprise but, it ended up being perfect timing. And, from what I was told from my doctor, the time a lot of people strive for. My girls are exactly 3 yrs & 18 days apart. My oldest was fully potty trained and able to do some things independently, without needing me as much, when my youngest was born. But, they are still close enough in age to play together and have some common interests, unlike a 5 or 6 yr difference.
