Good day ladies .
I may be joining this board eventually LOL. I really want to have a third one but DH isn't ready. He wants to wait possibly 4 years oh geez . Anyway that would make my youngest 6 or 7. That seems like a really big age gap. Do you ladies think that makes things harder? My first two are only 22 months apart so 7 years of course seems large . What were some good and bad to waiting a while between children? Are you glad you did it or would you have rather had them closer? I guess some pro's and con's. I am thinking that the gap would mean my older two could fend for themselves a bit more and be more helpful but I would worry they would feel left out. Could there be jealousy issues? Gosh I just don't know. Anyway ladies thanks for any insight you might have.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my great siggie

welcome... I'm Tami 36 wife to Glenn 35,,, mother to Corina ( cori ) 15 step mom to Sydney 4 1/2 & one on the way,,, with a c/s sed,, for 25 jun 09...

Idk i never planned on having more kids myself,,, but well it happened,,, I'm ok with it,,, sometimes i get sad or upset for my daughter is now able to watch herself,,, Now i have to change a baby again.....

But i honesty know these fellings of dought will go away once i have the baby in my arms,,,

The only thing we have found so far is EVERYONE saying AWWW you have a built in babysitter... It got OLD really quick... but other than that i think it's a great tool for teaching my daughter WHAT not to do....

Well i wanna say ,, here's to hoping you get what you want

My girls are 5 years apart & I really thought it would be an issue but it hasn't been yet. They don't have a lot in common but Ari (my older dd) LOVES teaching her lil' sister new things & that itself brings them together.

It's not always a bad thing.

No one else will ever know the strength of my love for you. After all, you are the only one who knows what my heart sounds like from the inside." AA&NJ
