Hi all, (This is crossposted - sorry mods, wasn't sure the best place to put it! Please delete where appropriate - thanks!)
I am expecting in November. This baby is a surprise! When the baby is born, my children will be 10,6, and 4.
I know it all depends of course, but after all the worry about a healthy baby and being an "old parent", my next biggest worry is the spacing. Will my kids be close? Will the 10 year difference be too much? Will my current trio of boys be too old and not really embrace the new one?
Re: Child Spacing- 10,6,4, new born. Dynamics? Will they be close?
No on cam predict what your kids will be like especially if you can't and you obviously know them better than a bunch of strangers on the Internet.
I thought the older 2 would be embarrassed having a mom who is "old" anf having a new baby. They never said it but I wondered if they thought it.
When baby sister was born I couldn't peel them away from her. They are constantly wanting to hold her still.
I think it is all in how you raise your kids. I have a twin brother and never talk to him unless we are at family functions. Same with my other 4 brothers and sisters. We talk on fb but we are not a very close family. So we made a decision to be very involved with our girls. It wasn't like that for me growing up. Hubs was more closer to his sisters. And I am more closer to them than my own.
