I have said MANY of times how fast it goes, Blah blah blah... but really I remember as clear as yesterday being afraid of even touching this fragile 6lb 1oz, little bundle of joy, and here we are eleven years later in those tween years ( Does it really get worst!) With a more then growing boy, who thinks he is too smart for his own good. Simply amazing!
My oldest brother and I are ten years apart, I remember thinking how crazy my Mom was to wait until I was "independent" to a point, to have more children. I also thought it was crazy us being ten years apart and said I myself would NEVER have a ten year span between children. Of course I don't, my kids are all about 19mths to 3 years apart in space between them. From my oldest to youngest there is a seven year difference though.
The reason this got me thinking was (Disclaimer: Relax Mom, if your reading this I'm not saying I'm having more) again I'm not even thirty, I am plenty young enough for more children. Yet if I got pregnant tomorrow when that child was 11 my oldest would be 22! I'm not sure about this, coming from having a span of 10 years between my oldest brother and a 12 year difference between myself and youngest brother. I love them to death but think we could have been closer, if we would have been closer in age...right??? IDK
What is your ideal space between children? What are your thoughts on space between multiple children. I mean a eleven year difference between my oldest and a "new" baby would only be a 4yr difference between my daughter and baby......
