Not about the best...
Just looking for any mothers out there who...
1). Have a large-ish spacing between the first two (for example - mine is nearly 5 years) ...
2). Have an even larger spacing between the second and the third... (6 years +?)...
And how do you find that?
Not precisely what you're looking for, but I have a friend who has a 14 y.o., a 9 y.o., a 4 y.o. and a 7 m.o. , and she is very happy about the spacing.
For greater things are yet to come...

From what I am reading - perhaps part of the potential success with be to not put 'babysitting' duties onto the older child? I think I would resent that as well. It is why I don't ask my DS to do anything regarding 'baby care' now - but happily allow him if he wants to! (and he does sometimes! ) I don't want him to resent his brother because of mundane tasks. If that makes any sense!
