Our twins are going to be born 4 years apart from their brother. We wanted to wait longer because my wife and I both hated our siblings growing up (we were 3 years apart and hers were 4 years) and took until adulthood to become close. We also both wished our siblings had been born later so that we could have been around 10 or older and been able to take care of them sometimes. But our son has been begging for a sibling ever since he could talk and is super excited to meet the girls.
It’s too late to go back now, but I’m worried that Ollie’s excitement will fade quickly and he will hate his sisters just like my wife and I hated ours.
Does anyone have any positive experiences with kids born this close together? [name_u]Or[/name_u] any advice for helping them form a close bond so they don’t grow up despising each other? Thank you!
