Age gap

Anyone out there with a group of older kids like in their teens and twenties and then a set of younger ones like 2 or 3 yrs old? How is this for your family...do the little ones drive the rest of your kids crazy? Does having little ones when you are "older" make it hard for you? I am dealing with this and some days I could very well lose my mind.

  • Not me, but my sister, she is 45 yrs. and has a 22 year old son and a 5 year old daugter. I can see it is harder on her raising her daughter than it was for her raising her son. Specially where times have changed and her being an older mom now. It takes a big toll on her. But her son loves his little sister. They get a long real good.
