  • I wouldn't change anything. I love how far apart my boys are. My oldest just turned 5 at the end of May and my youngest turned 1 in March.

  • Well I am TTC#2 now, but i think we should have started a few months ago. Other than that, i'm ok with it. My son will be over 4 when i have the next one, and i think thats good. He will have had over 4 years with mommy and daddy, and plus he will be at an age where he can help somewhat with the baby, and understand whats going on so he won't feel left out.

  • I always thought I wanted to have them closer together (2 - 4 years at most), but as fate would have it there is an 11 year gap between my older one and my twins. Now I'm so glad it worked out this way. The big age gap meant my first had plenty of individual attention when she was younger, and now she helps out with the little ones and they really look up to her.
