Ok, I have 3 children all 7 years apart. I did not plan them to be that widely spaced. It has it's good point and bad. Good points: the older children can help you, you are not chasing about more than 1 small child, going to the store is not super stressfull and you can bond with them one at a time, for example....when the 2 olde ones are in school you spend quality bonding time with the baby....I did that with all three. DD1 had all my attention cause she was the only child, then when DS was born she was 7 and she was in school so t was me and baby at home and now that Sophia is here both kids are in school and it's me and baby.

Bad points: each kid is at a different age group so when you o places as a family it's tough: amusement parks, vacations etc.....

Honestly, if I could do it all over again, I would do it the same but many people love to raise their children very close in age but for me I think I would be overly stressed.
