How old were you when you had your kids?

How spaced out are they? Do you think their spacing is good or you would have done it different?

  • I was 26 when I had my first. My boys are 28 months apart. I would have spaced them out a little more if I could change it but it's too late now. LOL

  • I was 23 when my son was born....he was 8 months old when I found out I was pregnant with my daughter. they are 17 months apart. At first I was freaked out....but now I wouldn't do anything differently. They are in love with each other and are now at the age where they both are eating big ppl food and both out of diapers and are heading into school. It's nice to have them both in the same stages....and out of the same time!

  • 21, 31, and 35 But 25, 31 and 35 would have been a better idea.
