The worst part of having a big age gap between siblings is the attitude they seem to pick up from their older sibling.
I have heard "Me 'ATE you!" so many times this week from our 2.5yr old, I am over it.
I 'ate hearing it. It sounds dreadful coming from a little boy.
We try to explain to our 7yr old that his little brother copies everything he says and does. He is just a kid though and gets carried away without thinking of course.
Do you have a big age gap between your children? What have you found to be the hardest thing with older siblings?
