Re: adding in another child -- just some thought-provoking questions

For me, I think it was the transition from four to five.

BUT, we had unique circumstances in that our children were:

3 year gap
(Because of the death of a child here, there was 2.5 year gap.)
Two year Gap
Eleven MONTH Gap

The fourth had various issues as a toddler/preschooler, the main one being two major food allergies - dairy and soy which made my (NOW) angel a very difficult toddler. And obviously adding in a new baby less than a year apart. I WILL say that our current household is not neater, but runs more smoothly and with less drama than it ever did with just two children. :P
