The bond between siblings is a very special bond.
There is nothing better than watching our three together, playing, laughing, cuddling, enjoying each other.
They truly adore each other.
I am thankful that the age gaps between each of them doesn't really matter.
Some people told me when I was pregnant that the gaps were to big and that they would grow up and move in different circles - they would never be close.
I disagree and I firmly believe that no matter what the age gaps between siblings they can have a close relationship as long as the family unit is strong.
My own family is incredibly close and I would like to think that our family will be the same, no matter what, that they will always have someone and somewhere to go to when life doesn't go according to plan.
Our Teen is brilliant with both of the boys, she is so good to them. She helps to look after our Little Fella, she helps our Inbetweener with his homework, as well as other countless little things.
She is the best big sister and they are very lucky to have her.
Our Little Fella lights up when he sees his big sister and brother, even at this early stage he knows that they are all his. Both of them are under his spell and his wish is their command.
Last week when our Teen was going to a disco I heard her brother tell her she looked beautiful. (That's pretty impressive for a 7 year old, I think I'm going to have to watch him in a few years!)
Just yesterday evening I was clearing the dinner dishes and I could hear squeals of laughter coming from the living room. Our Little Fella was laughing so much at this big sister and brother entertaining him that he almost choked.
I savour these moments because in the real world it won't always be like this, perfect yet simple and precious.
I hope and pray that their bond will continue to grow and that they will always be there for each other.
Do you think that age gaps make a difference to how your children bond? I'd love to hear your thoughts...
