Not really. My first DD is 9 and will be 10 in December. I have a 23 month old and I'm pregnant with #3 due in November.
With DD1, I got to spend lots of time with her and we're best friends now! We have a great relationship. When she was 3, she asked me for a sibling, but I was a single mom at the time, and wanted the right person to come along.
My DF and I had our baby in 2007, and while it was an adjustment for all of us, my DD1 was a big help when she was little and still is. It is hard to get a 9 year old to play with an almost 2 year old when all she is interested in is iCarly and her Nintendo DS...
Now that we're having #3, the age difference is going to be challenging, but we're hoping it will work out for the best because now DD2 has someone close in age to play with!
My sisters and I have a weird age difference too, but since I'm the middle child, I have a good relationship with both.
