My girls are exactly one year apart!! They are even the same age for 2 days!!! It is really hard at times because they can fight like there is no tomorrow!! I think that they challenge each other toooo much!! They both want to be the boss!! But at other times they can be best friends!! They give me a headache sometimes!! Then to top them off I have a 1yr old who is so cute!! He gets in the yelling matches and yells himself but you can't understand him!! It's to funny!! I think though that if I didn't have this craziness in my house it wouldn't be any fun!!

My oldest and middle child are 12 months apart due to my son being born premature.

my eldest 2 boys (10 and 9) are 2 days less than a year apart so are the same age for 2 days also!! the fighting is awful but when they play together it's fantastic. I think half the problem with my 2 is although they are the same in a lot of ways, interests etc health wise they are very different and I think sometimes the eldest resents the youngest because of it and the extra 'attention' he gets.

How do you deal with their birthdays? With my 2 we do presents on the day between their birthdays, as when they were younger it was the only way I could do it without one or other getting grumpy. As they've got older I've thought about splitting their birthdays and giing presents on their actual birthdays but it always seems they want the same thing and I end up getting joint presents all the time, but then they get to choose dinner on their birthdays (usually a takeaway) and I do allow them to open small gifts with their birthday meals

I then have my 2 little ones, a son who is 2 3/4 and a daughter who is 7 1/2 months so they are just over 2 years apart, and I wouldn't change it for the world - I just love how close they all are!!!

My two boys were both born on August 7 2007 and 2008. It was definatly NOT planned.

Mine are 2 years and about 1 week. I had the same due date (March 11) for both. My daughter was born 2-25 then my son on 3-6. I like having them so close together, but I could do with less diapers!!
