How Close is Too Close?

2/08 I’m looking for advice from mothers with multiple children. Some people say to “bake the buns while the oven’s hot.” Others tell pretty entertaining tales about life with four children four and under. I’m not so sure I’m up to that kind of moment-by-moment 24/7 (32/10) entertainment. But I would like to hear what are the pros and cons of each side more specifically. So please send your comments, emails, or phone numbers (I have unlimited minutes) and tell me what your experience has been. Here’s some questions to prompt your memory.  1. How many children did you raise? a. 2-4 b. 5-6 c. 7-8 d. 9+ 2. How far apart were they in age? 3. Did you— a. Schedule them at that spacing? b. Let nature take its course? c. Both a and b. d. Other (adoption, etc.) 4. Did you feel that a. They were too close in age b. They were too far apart in age c. Just right d. Other 5. If you could do it over again, what would you change? 6. What reasons would you give that the spacing in age was just right? 7. What reasons would you give that the spacing was too close? 8. What reasons would you give that the spacing was too far apart? 9. If you have additional advice, please feel free to share it. 
