My kids are for sure widely spaced..LOL. My oldest is 14y 8m....next in line is 7y 2m and I'm pregnant with another due in April 2011!! The first two are right at 7.5 yrs apart.. the oldest will be 15y2m older then baby and the middle will be 7y10m older.
I couldn't imagine my kids closely spaced, I look at families in the store with two or three kids close in age and think WOW how do you manage. I love the fact that I'll never pay two colleges at once, I have a lot of time between buying each their first car, I only have to deal with one set of firsts at a time. It really is like having 3 only kids, even though my older two get along amazing and do play together and stuff we never go thru the same stages at the same time. Both are very excited about having a little baby brother or sister.. though my current youngest hopes it's a boy because she doesn't want to share the princess title in the family!! (my oldest doesn't like being called princess she's my antiprincess)
Mine are spaced about six years apart. I agree with you on all counts and have enjoyed have them so widely spaced. My daughter is giddy as she will be keeping her princess title since she has tow older brothers and now a little brother. In fact when she found out it was a little brother she exclaimed " Woot! I am still the princess!!"
LOVE your daughters saying when she heard it was another boy! LOL... too cute.
She cracks us up a lot. The other day they were both not listening and I admit I lost my temper and just sent them to their rooms. As she was passing by me she patted my tummy and said " It's okay, I know my baby brother is making you all bitter sometimes!" Little turkey! But it helps that she "gets" mommy is all hormonal sometimes! LOL!
