Anyone have a large age gap between their tween and other children?
My tween is 12 will be 13 in september. We also have a 2 year old. We of course didnt plan to have such an age gap between them but I got pregnant with my tween when I was young and of course wanted to wait until i was married before having another. Anyway for those of you who also have a large age gap between children do you find it easier or difficult? I found it to be easier when he was a newborn because when our youngest napped we could too and i didnt have to worry about supervising my other child because he was old enough to hang out in his room etc. But now that my youngest is older i find it harder especially in the aspect of finding things to do as a family. Ideas I may come up with seem to only interest either my youngest or my oldest but rarely both. Half the time I feel like my tween complains more then my youngest about things. He also never wants to entertain his younger brother because he says "hes just a baby." Its very frustrating! Anyone have any tips or advice on dealing with this?
