  • My oldest 2 are 3 years and 2 months apart. The youngest baby (3rd and last child) is about 4 1/2 years younger than the second child. No, no one says anything.

  • Mine are 15 months apart. I had them in my early 20's and my dh and I looked a lot younger than we were, so we got comments....

    It does get better (less comments) as the kids get older. Mine are 18 and 17 now and we don't get nearly the comments we used to get.

  • My first two are 21 months apart in age and the gap between my youngest and them is 9 years. I was 22 when I had my first, and looked my age so I didn't get any comments about being too young.

  • My children are 14, 12 and 9..the older 2 are exactly 2 years apart..when they were younger people thought they were twins because the older one is small for his age and the younger one is big. To this day they are still very close in height and where the same clothes. There is 2 1/2 years between my middle child and the baby. My older 2 are both born in March one in 1997 and one in 1999, the baby was born in November of 2001.

    When I used to take all 3 of them 2 the mall by myself, I needed to get out of the house in the winter, people would look at me like funny. One time we went to a restaurant for lunch and the waitress said "Is there anyone else?" I said "No, just us." she must of thought I was was me with a double stroller and 3 kids. It looked like I had 2 year old twins and an infant. To me I didn't care, I need to be out of the house.
