Why I love the small age gap


I have two boys, and there's a 13 month age gap between them. 

I remember when I got pregnant with my youngest a lot of people thought I was nuts, but having two kids of the same sex with a small age gap does have its advantages!

Here's some of the reasons why I love having a small age gap between my boys:

They are both into the same stuff - because they are so close in age they both want to play with cars, diggers, trains etc.  The youngest has developed quicker because he wants to do everything the older one does.

Youngest gets all my eldests hand be downs - this has saved us so much money! We buy a few bits for our youngest child, but the majority of his clothes are hand me downs from his older brother.

You get all the nappies out of the way in one hit - our eldest is already potty trained and I'm just been through potty training with my youngest.

Don't get me wrong, some days are really hard with my two - but the positives definitely outweigh the negatives.
