 Did you plan it that way?

My oldest 2 are 2 1/2 years apart but I wanted them a few months closer...didnt happen. My youngest is 4 years younger than my 2nd child. Planned and unplanned...I wanted to wait because my daughter was a handful and I couldnt handle a baby and her...then I was ready but it didnt happen for awhile.

So mine are 17, 15 and 11.

2yrs and one month. No we did not plan it...we planned for more like 5yrs apart but I wouldn't change it for the world. A lot of ppl tell me it's better to have them 2 or 3 yrs apart

They are 3 years and 3 months apart. Exactly what I wanted. Turned 6 in March and little one will be 3 next month.

 I definately think its best to have them that far apart...I know its good for them to have a playmate around their age but now that mine are teens, it seems to make them closer too.

Yeah it's not that bad how it is. I actually like it and I'm glad our plans changed

 My eldest is 11 1/2 almost 12 (aug) and the twins just turned 4.  We didn't plan it this way.  Unfortunately, DH and I didn't tend to our marriage like we should have and had to really "start over" and get back to basics about 5 1/2 years ago.  After that, we got preggers with the twins.  It's been great since.
