post #21 of 21
I am the oldest of 8, and there are several large gaps of 4-5 years. I know my mom said she loved the big gaps because it gave her a chance to really enjoy the baby. As we've grown up, we've become friends based more on personality and circumstances than on age. I'm close even with my sister who is 20 years younger! And I've always been the closest to the sister who was born when I was 13!
My youngest will be 4 when this baby is born, though, and I'm hoping they are friends or I'll feel like I have to have another!
