  • Mine are 15 months apart and I had no problems for the first year or so. The fighting started after the little one turned 1. I don't have much advice...anything specific?

  • Always park next to the cart corral at any store...grab a cart and put your kids in it right there...when you leave the the corral is right there...
    I have never had a problem with my 2 girls being 15 months apart until the teens...there were never any fights...I do highly recommend parking next to a cart corral though

  • Just take things 1 day at a time and don't sweat the small stuff.  The house doesn't have to be perfect.  Just keep the dishes and clothes clean and rest when you can.  My first 2 are 15 months apart and it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be but then #3 came when #2 was 13 months and that was a little harder.  Sometimes I long for those days when they were babies/toddlers.  They were easier to handle back then.  They are 10, 8 1/2 and 7 1/2 now and all they do is fight and drive me up the wall.  They got along so well when they were little and listened better then, too.
