What do you like and what do you dislike about this spacing?

The reason I ask is because, we arent sure if we want another but if we do have one, we would like to wait til ds is 3 -4 to try.

They have nothing in common. The cartoons/shows that the older one likes, the younger one is too young for/doesnt like. Same for games like candy land or monopoly. One thinks they are too immature and one doesnt understand. They will never have mutual friends...

The 11 yr old and 7 yr old get along great so far but as the 11 yr old gets into jr high next year I know thats going to change but its funny because the 11 yr old loves the 7 month old --that is "his baby sister" and carries her around everywhere..its funny who gets along with who
