Friends have 3 kids in 10 days. My SIL's waters broke with her second on the firsts birthday - she had to do some swift talking at the hospital to get the Caesar delayed till after midnight.
Ds2 and ds3 had the same due date. They ended up 7 days apart.
The biggest hassle was not knowing when to have ds2's birthday - didn't want to be in labour so we ended up postponing until after I had bubs.

There have been many jokes made at our expense but I don't care, I love having their birthdays close together!

Is there any jealousy or issues or is it more festive
21-09-2014 09:04 #15
Neither. It's exhausting, but we tend to throw big parties for all the kids.
My middle 2 are a month apart with Easter in the middle. My brother and my father and I are all in the same month. Never any jealousy at all but it's just tiring.
It's certainly not something I would go out of my way to plan to be honest.

My DS1 doesn't like having combined birthdays - but I'll be honest, there is no way in heck that I would be throwing 3 separate parties in 12 days to be honest. So he just needs to learn to get over it!.
I wouldn't go out of my way either, it costs too much all at once

My second and third child are 3 weeks apart. It makes for an expensive time of year, but at least they're in the middle of the year so I have time to recover before my first child's bday and Christmas, which are 4 weeks apart.
There's no jealousy or anything like that. I've done a combined party once (maybe twice?) when they were younger; I guess I just felt like I was asking too much of people to come to two events so close together, so I combined them. I would never do that now that they're older though, so it means two parties close together. I always host my own parties so it is a lot of work (and money), but I love doing it so it's fun for me. I guess it gets it out of the way all together though, so I feel like I'm on a party-planning-cake-baking roll with the first one so then I just continue straight to the next one. Also last year I gently convinced my youngest child to have the same theme as my middle child, so I just re-used all the same party stuff for both parties! LOL.

I like lilmiss idea about a joint party then on their actual birthday having a cake and special dinner.

And then yeah on their actual birthday they get to pick a special dinner and a cake so each individual birthday is still special.
