If you’ve been following my story on Babble you’ll know that I also write over on the Pregnancy channel. No, I am not pregnant, but we have been trying for over a year and before that it took me a year to wait for the husband to get on board with the idea as well.
I am nervous that it’s taking so long — by the time we have another child my oldest is going to be almost 8 years old. That’s a big age gap and with my youngest about to be 5-years old by the time — I am out of my territory of what I know.
There’s a 14-month age gap between the older two and almost exactly 2 -years difference between the girls and it’s a great divide of ages without making life too hard — you know, for me. I have a feeling everything is going to work out just fine, but I have gotten some great benefits over having my kids close in age.
