DH has a large gap with all of his siblings so I sort of think that he didn't have a playmate growing up. And I didn't have one either. So, I am curious what it is like to have children close in age. (I have one: a 12 mo old) Do they have similar interests so that they play and learn and interact well together? Like best friends?
My girls are 12months apart & i wouldn't say they are best friends (but they could be the age they are at 3.5 and 2.5) they spend more time arguing than playing nicely but they do share the same interests, which is nice and easier for christmas! there are times they will be nice to each other, I think it's mostly because Lacey is still only 2.5 and a bit young to understand the whole *playing nice* as Rhianna is improving every month with sharing and playing as she is getting older.
I do think though as my girls get older (maybe when rhianna is 5, lacey 4) that they will be much better around each other and really enjoy being in each others company (thats my hope any way lol)
My boys fight a lot right now but I'm hoping once Preston is a little older it gets easier. I was talking to a coworker and she said once we get pass this age it get better. Here children are a year apart (adults now) but when they were growing up they were best friends and still are. I can't wait to get pass this age and hopefully the boys will play better together.
My girls are definitely best friends, they say so all the time. They play together all day and when A's at school L says how much she misses her. I'm sure they'll grow apart in the years to come but they love playing with each other now. That being said, they totally can butt heads too.
