Finding the ideal age gap between siblings


I don't know where we first heard/read it but back when Collin was around 18 months, Sung and I were so convinced that 3 years was the optimal age difference between siblings.

Collin and Aaron in the fall of 2013; they were almost 5 years and 28 months, respectively
