that makes sense! my sibling and i are four years apart so i can understand the dynamic :)

in a happily surprising turn of events, i am expecting again! didn't think it'd happen so quickly since i'm in my late mid-30s, but after some initial panic due to the pandemic/etc, we are absolutely thrilled to have another little one join our family and feel very very fortunate that it wasn't a struggle for us.

we'll struggle through like so many others have before!

My kids are 3.5 years apart, which was just enough for my oldest to be useful when the youngest was born, but close enough that they still play together most of the time. The oldest had a more difficult temperament while the youngest was more laid back, so having a second child was not too difficult. We did have to work hard at making sure the oldest still felt like he was getting enough attention.

You're such an overachiever @FUNNYGIRLJESS :P Twins! What an adventure to navigate with an older sibling as well! Thank you for sharing!

i went from 1 to 3....twins, haha

The greatest gift for a child, a sibling....it's work, but so worth it. More love to go around and when they all nap at the same time, you feel like you're doing something right. And when it gets hard, reach out for help! Mine are big kids now and lot of fun.

One to two is far easier than two to three.
Mine were 2.5 years apart.
My first two granddaughters (sisters) are 16 months apart.

My little one is almost a year old. I always thought I'd want more than one baby. I was very lucky to have a pretty easy pregnancy, but with a little one it's not like I can come home from work, crash, and order takeout! Balancing all the demands a fresh baby has while we already have one child seems... impossible, yet obviously people do it all the time! My respect for parents has certainly grown even more after having my own baby! I have typical concerns like not being able to spend enough time with one or the other, let alone my spouse, housework, etc.

For those of you with more than one child, how was your transition from one to two kids? How far apart did you have them? Anything that made life significantly easier (or harder)?
