So the question begs to differ: Should I have had the kids farther apart so they can be better exposed to more educational activities, more one-on-one time with me and possibly get further ahead in life? Or did I do the right thing with having kids as fast as my vajayjay could handle in order to give them life-long friends/ siblings to comfort and love them throughout their lifetimes?

I’m a strong advocate for education but I think it’s a bit overrated in preschool. Sorry but who cares that someone's two-year-old can count to fifty in Latin? Impressive, yes. But let's be honest, do you think he's really going to get laid later in life? Probably not. I was the smartest kid in my kindergarten class, I finished two years of college by the age 17 and I graduated from a pretty good college and I think it’s safe to say that my life education has amounted to this:
But seriously, I really do think a college education is a necessity for succeeding in life for the vast majority of people in our global economy and I will be a bit sad if any of my children choose a different route but do I think knowing vowels and sounds of letters is the most important thing in the life of a 3-year-old? Nope. They will, undoubtedly, know all of these things in time. I just don’t feel like I should force it in exchange for the gift that I think is more valuable: siblings.

I know I’m insane for having kids so close together. I’m exhausted. I cry (and drink) about the difficulties of having children so close together quite often. But this is why I did it, this is why my vajayjay did it; we did it for them.
