What is a good age gap between siblings?

My daughter will be two in three weeks. I'm. Done school in the fall, but I don't want to have children for another two-three years. So my daughter will be 5-6 by the time the baby is born. Do you think that's too long? How many years are between your kids?

My first and second are 8 years apart.  I hate it!  

My second, third and fourth were born in three years.  My second and third are 14 months apart, that is my favorite.  My third and fourth are 24 months apart.  That wasn't so bad but I definitely like them closer in age.

Are your middle and youngest close?

My oldest two are three years apart (so far it's been an AWESOME age gap!)

My youngest is 17 months old and I just found out I'm pregnant with #3 last week. They'll be right around 2 years apart...we'll see how it goes!

My boyfriend really wants another one, but I don't know if I'm ready just yet.

My kids are 12, 14, 15, and 17, and due in February. It works for us. Of course, only my 12 year old and this baby are biologically mine, I didn't have any say in the other three.
