My brothers and I are each three years and one month apart. My mom says she did it on purpose to give us each our own birth month, while being sure that the youngest at the time was out of diapers and speaking. Actually Mom…that gives me the creeps to think about.
When we first had Harrison, the “plan” was to have our children roughly three years apart. Even though most of my friends went the “two under two” route, I felt that I needed that extra year due to the postpartum depression and my career. But then his second birthday rolled around and I didn’t get pregnant. And then his third birthday happened. And now we’re rounding the plate for his fourth birthday and nope, I’m not pregnant. It’s looking like our kids will be five to six years apart, at best. At first, I HATED that idea. I wondered how they could possibly be friends or play together with such a huge difference in age.
But then I realized that there are a ton of perks!
