# of Kiddos: 3; Sean will be 13 Oct 5th, Traci will be 9 Oct 1st and Keira is 14 months.
Gap between siblings: 4 years between Sean and Traci and then 8 years between Traci and Kiki
1 Reason Gap is a good thing: They were all out of diapers before the next, they will also be out of college before the next (god willing).
1 Reason the gap can be a challenge: It's a lot harder to run around with the older kids' activities with a toddler in tote!
