I have a 13 year old daughter and 2 year old twins. It worked out great for us. My older daughter was getting to an age where she was ready for a little less constant attention by the time the twins were born. She does help with the younger ones some (we don't ask her to help too much as they are not her responsibility, but she is very willing), and the little ones love and enjoy their big sister so much. My older one is always proud of the twins accomplishments and proud when she teaches them things, and the little ones really look up to her. Since we are older parents with the twins, they benefit from having an older sister who is still really silly and fun, and she benefits from learning what's involved with caring for young children and taking on more responsibility for herself. All around it has been a win, win, win situation for our family. I think our family is stronger and closer than ever.

I think I answered this in a different category, but anyway the kids are 18,16, 8 & 6 years old. I would not do it any different. There are different issues than with kids all close in age. In the beginning taking a newborn and toddler to the older boys ball games, scout meeting and camp outs was ummm interesting, but we survived. Now it is learning to drive, dating, or prom at one moment and setting up play dates, learning to read or write in cursive the next. I can say there is definitely not a dull moment.
