I have a little girl who's 3 today and her sister turns 2 on sunday.....I love having my girls close together but I know it has its hassles too....is there any advice you would like to give.....



I myself was born on the day of my brothers 1st birthday so we are exactly 12 months apart....hes always made a huge deal of how I "stole" ALL his birthdays .... he is still really selfish.....



I just want to continue the bond they have...even when they are fighting over jeans at 15 .....

My daughter Lilly was born 8 days before my Eldest Amber turned 1,so i get were your at!So now I have a 2 year old girl,three year old girl,and 7 month old girl,and my house is wild!They share a tremendously close bond,which i really enforce in our home,to be loving and kind with their sisters,and my hubby and i work at never being angry at one another so that they dont learn from us!Its not easy,but i find there are more pros to me then cons!And we aim to have another baby within the next 9 months lol!Its hard,tiring and mind draining,but the gift of the girls interacting and playing and enjoying similar interests as they grow is something i may not ahve gotten had we waited long periods of time between our kids!Hope you get the answers you wanted,and i would love to chat to you some more in the future!Catchya,Jess

hi my boys are 15 months apart, they do fight quite a bit, but they do play good a lot aswell, my oldest son is 3 on the 18th april and my other son is 21 months. i do stop them fighting as they end up banging there heads on the wall or they throw heavy objects at each other, end up with cuts and bruises, my kids are wild tho, they hardly ever sit down. but i love them to bits and wouldnt change a thing

Mine are 19 months & fight over everything!!! I usually let them wrestle til one gets hurt or they get to serious. I've learned if I break them up one will sneak up on the other later so I try to let them get it out as long as no one gets hurt.
