    Another parent here, got the 5yr old hooked on gadgets and tech, so give it a year or two and he'll be on here asking "how do I sync audio on HDMI because my ben 10 bluray is playing up" I'm sure.

    Anyone have a second child pretty quick after the first one ? My wife and I are considering trying for a second baby, our litle girl is only 10 weeks old, we're both in our (very) early forties and so don't want to wait much longer.

    Yep. My two eldest girls are twelve months apart and they're best friends (Now 17 & 18). Practical benefits when they were younger is that they shared the same play / bath / bed time. Now my wife and I have five children with fourteen years between them and bed time is from 6.30 until 10.30 before we get time together. And then we are too knackered to do anything!!!

    No. First two boys were two years apart, third son 8 years later and finally my daughter 3 years after that, 13 years from first to last. I have now been surgically altered :)

    Didn't care what sex she was, as long as she was healthy though

    I turned 45 in January, and I'm the father of a 9 year old and 3 year old.
    Plenty of sleep and PS3 time here, albeit once hectic bath and bed duties are done.

    Father of two, with nearly 4 years difference. First one we didn't want to know the sex, and it was a horrible hospital experience at L&D. Second one we did want to know but weren't allowed in L&D hospital due too problems with certain ethnic minority groups, stupid policy, but hey how I called in a favour with a friend in a hospital in London from my days in the Pharma industry and we got to know it. It was a nice and relaxed home birth, and we didn't have 1 but 4 mid wives in our house :) I think they panicked as the one allocated to us was busy on another delivery, never forget it I encouraged my wife to make the call at 8pm (she even bathed our eldest when I got home...) then a slight panic, first mid wive arrived at 8.45 them one at 9 and then the baby was born at 9.30pm shortly followed by the other two mid wives :)

    We did a home-birth for our third - great experience - much nicer than going to hospital - especially as our (brand new, mega expensive) NHS hopital is a bit on the deadly side when it comes to their maternity unit :(

    Yes, to a 16 year old of my own and an 8 year old step-son. The 16 year old never speaks and the 8 year old never shuts up! My partner would like another one, but has been told - in no uncertain terms - that if she thinks I'm having another child at 45 years old she's having a laugh :nono:
