    I don't have any children myself and am from a family of 2 but my mom grew up as the youngest of 7. The oldest is 26 months older than number 2. Kid 2 is 20 months older than number 3. Kid 3 is 24 months older than kid 4. Kid 4 is 17 months older than kid 5. Kid 5 is almost 5 years older than kid 6 and kid 6 is almost 4 years older than kid 7. And there is almost 16 years between the oldest and the youngest.

    I don't have time to answer all the questions, but we have 10 precious children (two adopted boys) and I just found out I am expecting #11. Our older children have between 3 and 5 years age gaps. Our youngest ones are a year apart.... I really loved the spacing of three years.. the one year spacing is fun, but a lot more physical work! :-)

    About vehicles for large families... we just purchases a Nissan NV 3500 passenger van. It seats 12 (our oldest dd is almost 20 and will be getting married this winter)... we LOVE this van!!!

    I have 5 (11, 9, 7, 5, and 1) my closest are 20 months apart and the longest between babies is 40 months.

    Since my youngest is over 3 years younger than his closest sibling I had hoped the next sibling would be closer so he'd have a playmate. But I just had my 2nd miscarriage in a row and am reminded that planning is nice but much of life is out of our hands.

    I have a 9-seater suburban.

    I'm the eldest of four. My twin brother and I get alone brilliantly. When we were four my sister was born and we were a really close family. When I was thirteen my mom had a surprise pregnancy and My little baby brother was born. He lit up my world and I loved having another brother.
    My husband also has a big family. When I met him I gained four more sisters.
    Big families are brilliant. I grew up always having someone to play with and I'm glad my children have that too.
