Sibling Age Gaps

After Buddy was born Mrs OMG and I agreed that 3 children was plenty for us. The pregnancy and  birth weren’t the easiest. Read his birth story here

Fast forward 6 years and in a moment of madness we decided a fourth would be a good idea! 

Little Miss OMG was born when Buddy was 6 and a bit. Throughout the pregnancy he was adamant he wanted a baby brother. Even telling Mrs OMG not to come home from the hospital with a girl! Oh dear, Houston we have a problem!

For two days after Little Miss OMG came home he barely came out of his bedroom! 

Thankfully this phase soon passed and now they are the best of friends. She is a little bully, takes everything off him, slaps him, jumps on him and doesn’t leave him alone.

Not once though has he gotten cross with her. Raised his voice or told us to get her away from him.

I hope they keep this bond and it gets stronger the older they get. 

I’m not what you would call close to my sister or half brothers and sister. Without Facebook I’d have no interaction with my half siblings and speak to my sister a few times a year on the phone, and text or message every few weeks.

Perhaps if we lived closer it might be different.

What age gaps do you have with your children? Does it make a difference?
