I have 3 kids, all of them are pretty spread apart...My son is 11, i have a daughter who is 3 yrs old and my last one is 6months old. My advice is to include the kids with everyday tasks with the baby, and have patience with the older ones...

Hi Lee i have 3 girls 14, amost 2 and now Aimy 6 months the age gap between the first and the last was easy to manage but the close gap from Alexis and Aimy is oldest helps alot and the middle tries to follow the oldest so i guess no mather what the gap things come to order and everything is good ...good luck with hte boys !!!

Its not soo bad!  my kids are almost 14, 12, 8, almost 5, and now 6 months!  I say just let the older ones help and be involved.  it honestly helps me immensly

I'm just a parent to my 6 month old son, but I did give my parents a hand in taking care of my younger brothers. I'm 24 and my brothers are 16 and 12, so yeh there is a HUGE gap there between us. Siblings will be siblings it really doesn't matter the age really, I find now that my 16 year old brother and I can hang out and we get along great. As for my 12 year old brother I feel more as a parent towards him, I'm sure once he gets older things will change.
