My siblings were all born close together. When I was born my mom had 4 kids and the oldest was 5 years old. Before I was two my younger sister was born and by the time I was 4 I had two younger sisters. Growing up there was always so much going on I felt like I kind of just blended in, like I was just there. I didn't get a whole lot of personal attention because there was so much going on. When I went to my prom it wasn't a huge deal because I had two other siblings attending that year too. That was the way it was with most things.
Now with my kids I plan on having them more spaced out. My first son got my full attention for the first three and a half years of his life. I plan on doing this for my 2nd also and any other children I have.
So do you prefer them closer together or further apart? And why?

I prefer my children further apart, I just feel like I couldn't build a strong trusting relashionship with my daughter if I had already had another baby, I'm sure people can, but I just can't. My husband and I are talking about trying for #2 soon, which will put my kids more than 3 years apart.
