|Olivia, Jenny, Collin (circa 1993-4)|
|Tess, Olivia, Collin, Jenny (around 2002-3)|
I was two years and four months old when Jenny was born, and due to our lovely relationship, I never second guessed the time frame and always sort of assumed I would follow that path. Collin was born when I was six, so my parents waited almost double time to have him than they did with Jenny. And, I was thirteen when our dad and his girlfriend had Tess, so I saw life from that perspective as well. I tend to fall into the two-to-three years camp. I'm not nearly ready yet to have another baby...I love not being pregnant right now, and Weston still needs his mama's attention! Quite frankly, I'm not exactly sure how you do life with two kids...any input on that one?
On the other hand, many family members and friends have babies very close in age, and I can see the perks of that also. A friend with three under three recently told me that she just assumed the next few years would be chaos and to go with it; I liked that perspective, but I don't know if I could handle it!
So, do tell: what age gap do you think is ideal for kids? What's the age gap between your kids or your siblings?
