Hi everyone! I saw this little space and thought I would see if anyone else has a super large Gap the way I do. My daughter will be turning 12 the year my # 2 arrives. That is a HUGE gap for kids. We kind of figured having two more bc of the gap. Kind of thinking that my oldest will be grown and out the door and if we don't have 2, we will have an only child again. So we plan on having one more after #2 is about a year old so they are about 2 yrs apart vs 12 lol.
Anyone else have a huge gap like this? They should be over the sharing mom's attention by this time right?
I'm due in September with my 2nd child, and my oldest is 10 years old. He is really excited about finally having a little sister to play with. I don't have any advice since I am still in the same boat as you, but I am not expecting any jealousy issues. We always talk about her as being his new best friend and playmate, so he can't wait for her to get here.
