Do you have kids with big age differences?

My daughter is 14 and I want to get pregnant with #2. Do you have any kids with big age differences and did you like it?

  • My kids are 17, 15 & 1. No, the one-year-old isn't on purpose.

    The older ones don't live with me so it's kind of like just having one kid though.

  • I do have an age difference! My daughter is 8 and my son is 16.I know we have different age grouped children but all the same thing.yu have to have patience to have to different age is easy around my house but it's different. Just remember no matter how old they are life is gonna be hard but once you get used to it it turns out ok. I hope it helps.

  • Not that much, mine are 7 years apart. DD is the older (mini-mom), they are great friends and even roommates. ( DD is 30 and DS is 23)

  • My DS will be 8 on sunday. I am currently 15 weeks pregnant. Not sure yet how it will be. He seems eager to help, or at least he says that now. We will see once the baby gets here :)

  • No, but my siblings and I have big differences. My brother and I are 8 years apart and my sister and I are 18 years apart. It's odd, and it's weird because I see my sister more like my child than my sister since my daughter and her are the same age.

  • My kids are 11, 4 1/2 and 5 months. Having them spaced out helps.
