Not that long ago my household was crazy — I had three kids who were only 3.5 years apart and when we would go out we would get some interesting looks and some strange comments.
People assume that they were not “planned,” that we just “got pregnant,” and anyone who knows my pregnancy history would know that is not the case with us — I wish we could just accidentally get pregnant. Our kids were all very much planned and so were their age differences, as much as we could (we tried to have them closer in age).
Speed and Raru are 14 months apart and then Raru & Bean are 2 years apart. I preferred the closer-in-age gap, and as we plan for baby # 4, I worry about the 3+ year age difference there will be between them.
I can recognize that we are not really the norm as far as family planning and the age gap goes. I have chatted with many people who find that their personal age gap preference is 2+ years, however there are still some things you should never assume or say to us.
