1. I had my kids 18 months apart. It was really hard in the beginning but now I’m so happy it turned out that way. They are great friends (most of the time 😏).

  2. I am the exact opposite – my son is 13 years old and my daughter is 15 months. It wasn’t by choice; I did want my son to have a brother or sister closer in age, but that wasn’t in the stars. I can definitely see how they’d all keep each other entertained, but i can’t imagine trying to do anything outside the house – you’re awesome!

      Thanks Jamie, It does get difficult getting things done, I am sure your 13 year old just soaks that baby girl right up!

  3. Ours aren’t quite as close in age, but we currently have 3 ages 3 and under. It’s crazy and chaotic, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world! I also come from a larger family (I have 5 sisters), and know what a blessing siblings close in age can be as you get older.

  4. Wow I bet you have quite a lively household! I grew up as an only child. I can definitely see the draw of having kids close together in age though.

    I loved reading your blog. It is refreshing to know there are others like us out there. I have a 19 month old, a 7 month old and am 9 weeks pregnant with twins. X

  6. You are one awesome mama! I baby bunched, but I only have two kids. I have a 1 year old daughter and 2 year old son, who were born 11 months apart, so they are also Irish twins. Having little ones definitely keeps you busy! I love your list of pros, and like you, I couldn’t imagine my life without my two beautiful toddlers.

  7. We have one and I really see how if he had a sibling or two, things would be better for him. I feel badly there are no playmates but myself, my husband and the dog most of the time! Forget about getting anything done!

  8. WOW, you must be one strong mama! I struggle with my two some days. Having kiddos that grow up to be the best of friends is definitely the best reward though.

  9. I bow my head to you because it truly seems like you are rocking it out. Moms with multiple kids have to have octopus arms but with kids around the same age I know it takes extra strength.
