I have an almost 11 yo boy, 8 yo girl and 10 month boy. I always wanted 3 kids, but I always said I wouldn't have no.3 until the other 2 were at school. That way, I could spend quality time with baby, without feeling as though I was neglecting the other pair. Once they are home from school, the baby usually goes to bed, so this allows me quality time with the older two, as I help them with their homework and they tell me about their day.
I love the age gap, as I don't have to constantly run around 3 little one. The older two are independant and can do things for themselves without me having to stand over them supervising their every move. They also help out with baby and the keeping of the house, so they are a great help.
