About raising kids so far apart?

I would say it's going to be having a Jr in high school & a grade 2. It's going to be hard when they both have things at their schools on the same day and trying to help with homework at such different levels and dealing with a 7 yr old and a 14 almost 15 year old...OMG! I'm going to go crazy .... & spending equal time with them even now...I find it so much easier to fall into my baby then my gradeschooler. He is learning so much cool stuff and is so interesting that I worry I am not being equal enough. I try my very best though!

What about you?

I have the same issue with my kids. I am always worried that I'm not balancing my time. Always trying to help my son (7) with his homework and still tend to my daughter (1) has gotten rough here lately. Now that she's getting into everything I have to keep my eyes on her. I just feel bad for my oldest sometimes. I try to spend time with him while she naps I just wonder if it's really enough?

The hardest thing is realising that Jaidyn will be like an only one when the others are all older and a might even have left home.
Jaidyn will start school in 2011, that will be Elijah's 5th year at high school. When Jaidyn hits high school in 2018, she'll have no siblings there at all!!
