We have a 2 yr old and a 1 yr old, boys. We know we want a third and would like a girl, but would be happy to use all these boy clothes more LOL Here is the situation, my hubby will deploy in 2012, he will begin training for deployment next summer. In a way I want to wait until these 2 are a little older, like the oldest was in preK, so in about 2 years get preggo again. Plus I am 32 and not wanting to be older for my bodies sake. But if we wait to start trying again, it could be like another 3 years. If I was to get pregnant in the next year, I know it would be crazy with 3 on my own, since it's crazy with 2 on my own about 85% of the time. I guess I want to know how difficult it is with 3 little ones not in school. Or is it more enjoyable to wait until I can devote more time to a baby in the future. Would them being soo far apart in age matter as far as how they will play together? This kind of info is what I am pondering.

I am a mother of 4, 3 boys and 1 girl ages 13/12/7/ almost 3. I wish I had had them closer together in age. My 2 oldest get along fairly well, they have the occasional wresting match but what kids don't! the 13 year old kinda likes his 2 youngest siblings ( he prefers not to have any though) My 12 year old (who turned 12 today) just doesn't want to have anything to do with our 7 year old. Our 7 year old is always picking on our 2 year old who is just rotten because most of the time the boys adore her! I am a single parent for half the year my husband works in the oilfields and I can do it, I think you can handle it too! Good Luck!

I had 3 kids under 3 (the older 2 were 28 months an 13 months when the 3rd was born). But I had help from my husband. It wasn't as hard as some people make it out to be but it was stressful and I NEVER went anywhere alone with them. It was just logistcally a nightmare to try especially in the car with all of them in seats.
But it was fun and they all went through their stages right in a row. They are 10, turning 9 on Friday and almost 8 (in November). I also have a 4 1/2yo and a 2mo. It's always crazy around here.
