That's just what I needed to hear right now.... it's all my fault. Not that I haven't been stressing about that already.

I really hate to be defensive, but we decided to have them close together because 1) my brother and I were 5 years apart and never really got along. I never had a playmate growing up and I was so jealous of kids who had siblings that were friends close to their age. My mom always talks about how exhausting it is to be raising kids for so long 2) my DH has a brother who was 2 years older than him and they have always been best friends. 3) I have a back injury that will probably only continue to deteriorate and could make it impossible to handle another pregnancy if I wait much longer

We also thought we were going to be around extended family by the time this baby got here, but due to factors beyond our control (my DH is military) we ended up 16 hours away from anyone and everyone.

I know lots of people who have done it and ended up just loving having kids close together and their kids loved coming from that kind of family. Those people are the ones I was hoping could give me some advice as to when it gets easier and rewarding.
