How is it having kids 10 years apart?

I just found out I’m pregnant. My kids would be ten years apart. I foresee this being viewed as a major rift for my daughter instead of a blessing. Does anyone have advice? Anyone have kids ten years apart? How’s it going??

I’m pregnant now & my eldest is almost 9. So kind of similar! He is soooo excited. He gets to play with the baby & he’s old enough to pick him up on his own etc. Talks about baby sitting & ordering pizzas for his brothers when daddy takes me on a date! If anything, your daughter will be old enough to help out with the fun bits, baby clothes, playing dress the baby, showing her off to her friends etc. Message me if you want to chat. Honestly I wouldn’t worry xx

I had my first in 1989, my 2nd in 1997 my 3rd in 1999 and my last in 2001, its actually pretty awesome. My oldest has a better understanding of a baby’s needs, so is more loving and compassionate

My kids are 16 years apart

Once they become adults it wont matter

I have a son who’s almost twelve and a daughter who’s 23 months. They’re best friends and can’t get enough of each other.

I have a 25yr and 9and 8 yr old all good sofar all girls

My girls were 12 and 8 when my son was born and they adored him and still do

I have a 13-year-old girl and a nine-year-old girl who’s almost 10, Then I got married at 30 and now have a three-year-old little girl and a five-month-old little boy. Having two sets of kids a decade apart honestly is great as long as your older child is a helpful child and an understanding child

My oldest 13 my youngest 10 months. 7 year old as well. They for the most part all get along. It been difficult. All 3 are 6 1/2 years apart.

Me and my sister are 10 years apart. She was an only child til my parents met and i came along. I remember not being close when we were younger but now as adults we get along great for the most part
