Yes, that is definately widely spaced! Now I am not so sure my 3-4 years apart would be considered wide enough.

My first 2 are 4 years apart which I still do consider widely spaced... but my third is 8 years younger than my 2nd.

You sound like me, Shae is turning 8 and James just turned 1 WHEEEEE!

Actually you'll find it's bunches easier in alot of ways... and more difficult in others, but certainly different than having them super close LOL (My first two are only 11 mos apart LOL - I'm an extremist does it show )

I haven't posted in this room in a while but mine are 17 years 5 months and 5 days apart so I'm pretty sure I qualify.

Mine will be 17 and 14 when this baby is born. Step kids will be 18 and 15. Yikes. But I am thrilled!

The youngest will be in high school! All will have graduated when this one goes to school.

If you would like to see pictures of my sweet (but tiny) boy they can be viewed at www.caringbridge.org/visit/noahdarrohn they aren't the easiest pictures to look at but I am willing to share them with anyone who would like to see them <3
On August 2, 2012 we lost Sarah at 17 weeks. Her pictures can be viewed at http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/sarahdarrohn
There is no known explanation for my losses.
