I was recently intrigued by a very active discussion going on in a Facebook group I belong to where a mom posted a question looking for advice about family planning and age gaps between children. Because this is a topic that has been on my mind for a while, I thoroughly enjoyed reading through the dozens of comments and starkly contrasting opinions.
This topic is so relevant in my personal life because Jamie and I have been discussing for a while when the right time would be to make Hadley a big sister, and listening to the varied opinions of family and friends has been more interesting than anything. My two younger siblings and I are only 3.5 years apart total, and though we dealt with more than our fair share of siblings issues growing up, we’re all three really close now. I love being in similar stages of life as them, and I guess I’ve always just imagined that my own children would be close in age as well.

Let’s hear it! What are your personal thoughts?
Hi! I’m a proud Army wife and mom to two little girls (ages 1 and 4), and I love sharing our lives with you. I blog all about motherhood, our time in the military, our travels, our meals, my fitness journey, my fashion favorites, and so much more. I truly enjoy sharing it all! I can’t get enough of birthday cake ice cream, weekend sunrise runs, or making my girls belly-laugh. I write almost daily about my family’s lives, and though I like to keep things light, I also share the messy parts too. Welcome! So glad to have you around. I’m active on Facebook and Instagram and would love to communicate with you there!
