Close in age


Good morning everyone, I am up and writing at 6.55am again this morning, doubt I will get it finished though as Summer will be here any time now. 

Anyway onto today's topic, age, well closeness in age and how even though a couple of people can be close in age there can look to be an wider gap between them than there is. 

In my family we have had at different times a number of babies all born around the same time and are pretty close in age, such as in 2010 when we had Temika, Liarna and Sydney-May born all in January. Look at them now even though there are only 16 days between the oldest and the youngest of the girls when you see them sometimes it seems like there is a larger gap and at other times the gap doesn't seem that large at all. 

Then we have my nieces, Hayley and Denni also born in the same month and year but the gap between them to me looks bigger than it is. 

Which one is oldest.............can you guess..................and by how much.............

Sometimes the gap between to children is greater like a year between them but still people will think that they are the same age I remember when Sandra & David were toddlers and I would take the out I would often get asked if they were twins.

There is roughly 2 years between each of my girls born in 85, 87 & 89 because I always thought it was good to have the kids close in age so they would have each other as playmates when they were little and each other as pals as they got older.

The gap between my sisters Jeannie and Sue isn't that big either, what do you think do they look close in age.

I don't have an up to date photo of Liarna, how annoying is that.

  1. My girls are 11 months apart and everyone asks me if they are twins. Two of my older brothers are 11 months apart and are night and day. You just don't know, do you? Cute kids!!

    1. Yeah I so get that, with Dave and Sandy only being a year apart they were often mistaken for twins.

  2. My brother and I have about 2 years between them and me (since I'm in the middle). We always got asked if we were triplets when my mum took us out and about when we were young.

    Now people think I'm the eldest between my sister and I and that my younger brother is the older one.

    1. Many people think Sue is older than me and she is in fact 7 years younger than so it really annoys her...............

  3. I always thought 2 years apart was the perfect difference in age!

  4. My nest sister to me and I are 15 months apart, and at times my mom would dress us alike, even though we really don't look alike at all. I think it's good for kids to have sibs/ cousins close in age.

    1. I agree when you have a sibling or a cousin you are close to who is around your age it makes life better, I know I felt more at ease when my girls wanted to have a sleep over at their cousins house as I trusted my sister with my girls 100%

  6. My brother and sister were born (quite accidentally) 11 months apart and after a year or so everyone thought they were twins. Really was hard to explain in line to see Santa while they were both the same age that month--LOL! ;)
