I loved it, Erin was independent in regard to using the toilet , feeding herself , she loved helping/being involved in getting her baby brother ready, choosing outfits, bath times , it was honestly a dream.
Fast forward three years, they have a great bond but do wind each other up lol which is expected.
Cons - not any I can think of to be hobest. I suppose now Erin goes to primary school and Charlie goes to nursery which is two separate places but it's not really an issue at all. Xx
Aw thank you, I suppose it was nice how you also spent quality time with Erin first before her little brother came. That's filled me with reassurance, thank you 😊 x
@kshelley Honestly it was perfect! I felt complete at the time and we all felt more close if that made sense. More love to share ❤️ xx
Between my oldest and middle was easy lewis was nearly 5 wen lillie was born ....I have my youngest who is now 5 so 5 years between lillie and harri I do however struggle with the 10 years between my eldest and youngest x
Yes I'm hoping it'll be easier with a bigger gap. Oh yes I can imagine 10 years is difficult. X
I don't. But I asked my mam is a bigger or smaller age gap was better when I fell pregnant with Aniela. Me and my sister are exactly 4years and 10 months apart. My mam has always said it was a nice age gap as when my sister was born I was pretty self sufficient. My sister and brother have a 2 year age gap and my mam said it was much harder with a smaller age gap!
Although me and my sister hated eachother until I was around 20 and she was almost 16. We'd argue constantly. She was so annoying. But then again my younger brother and sister are the same 😂 x
I suppose its pot luck whether siblings get on or not regardless of the age gap. Thank you though x
I'm interested to know too. There will be exactly 5 years between my 2 give or a take a day or two
Aww, yes I've noticed your posts, congratulations on your pregnancy. :) We've been trying for a year now with no luck, and would really like to book a holiday to Mexico next year, as I've been asked to be a bridesmaid over there, meaning I couldn't travel whilst pregnant (Zika virus). I just don't know whether to put our family plans on hold for another few years.
@kshelley thankyou, I'm hoping it won't be too bad as my son is quite independent now, dresses himself etc so I'm hoping I'll have me a little helper.
I understand your concerns regarding Zika. Its whether you'd be willing to cancel plans if you were to conceive in the mean time.. it's a hard choice isn't it knowing whether to put your life on hold or not. I hope you get your wish soon 🙏xx
@kerryy23 ye you're right about your little boy being more independent, hopefully that'll make things easier for you with a newborn. Hope everything goes well for you 🙏 x
