What kind of age gaps do you have between your children? If you have more than 1 type of gap (for example, a 2 year gap and a 4 year gap, etc) what do you prefer?

There is a 26 month gap between my oldest and middle.
Between my middle and youngest there is a 19 month gap.

I kinda wish there had been a bit more between them. We'd intended to have them 2-3 years apart. Worked for the first two but our youngest was impatient lol.
Now I kinda wish they'd been closer to 3 years apart.

~My thanks to *Kiliki* for the siggy and Lucy S for the blinkies~

Ethan and Kayley are exactly 2 years apart, they share a birthday.. it has it's good and bad points I think, if we ever had another there would be a 3yr+ age gap which I think I'd like, I could enjoy having them together but then Audrey would go to school a year or two later and I could do preschool at home with the 2nd child like I did for Audrey.
