I have two children- ages 12 (boy) and 16 months (girl). I love my children with all of my heart. They were both happy surprises. I worried at first about their huge age difference. I was really young (18) when I had my son, and, due to marital and financial issues through the years, we never planned on another child. Life had other plans for us, and we are so glad that we were blessed with our little girl! Well, I should say, we are blessed with BOTH of our children. We get to see life from two very different perspectives right now- one is starting puberty and the other is starting potty training. Life is interesting!
