The 5-6 year age gap

Anyone have a 5 -6 year age gap? Just wondering since *now I have started studies again* that will be the age gap if I was to become pregnant once I finish. My concerns are that DS will be starting school in 2016 and I finish my course Mid 2015 so he would almost 6 and I worry he wont be "close" with his sibling or get to spend much time with them?

I'm not sure. I don't want more than 3 years between my kids. I have a 4 and 2 year old already, so I should get started on our next. Lol

My oldest and middle are 7 yrs apart. It was great when the middle was a baby up until a yr or so ago. They now fight over everything!!! It drives me insane.

My middle (3) and youngest (almost one) are becoming best friend since the youngest is walking and interacting, but the minute my oldest gets home from school there is some sort of drama.

Mine are shy of 5 years apart and I love it. My oldest loves helping with her little sister and my youngest follows my oldest all around. I think they are going to be best friends.

 I have a close friend whose boys I spend a lot of time with, they are 5 years apart. She wanted it that way. Those two are the best of friends and they love and protect each other to no end. The oldest is now 7 and the little guy is 2. Two peas in a pod!

I have a 7 and 6 year old that are close to each other. They also have a little brother that will be 2 next month and they love him to death. They spoil him. They play with him and if he wants to play with them they give him their toys. I think it is great.

My kids are about 5.5 years apart. A boy and a girl. They can't stand each other.

My brother is 6 years apart from me.

We spent lots of time together and still played together. We also fought a lot for a bit until I got to my teens.
But most siblings fight. Mine are 2 1/2 years apart and fight ALL the time. ugh.
