Ugh bees dont put ideas into my head that having kids super close in age is a good idea.. I said i was a one and done kinda gal, until I had my baby boy and went through a short phase of suddenly wanting a second.

I think my husband would die if we had a second baby within a year of our first..ha

No kids yet (planning on one and done anyway) but my brother and I are 18 months apart and we went through a phase for a few years as teenagers where we were really close but haven’t really been close otherwise (I’m now 32, he’s 33), now we just see each other at family gatherings. My husband’s younger brother and sister are 12 months apart (and DH 3.5 years older than the middle child) and none of them are all that close and basically only see each other a few times per year because they scattered across the country after school. Then I had a friend who was 5 or 6 years older than her younger brother and apparently she loved the age gap and they were fairly close. So obviously, there’ll be experiences and opinions on either side.
