The beginning period of their married life was a blessing in disguise. They had a happy life for almost 2-3 years. I was the eldest son and soon became an apple of everybody’s eye. They showered their love on me and life was very much a bed of roses. When I reached the age of 5 years, I got admitted to a nearby school.

A blessing in disguise is something that appears to be no good while it is happening, but is later revealed to be beneficial in some way. Your usages doesn't fit the context.
"Almost 2-3 years" sounds as if you just have no idea what you want to say. When you say almost a century, the difference of one year is insignificant. The difference between almost two years and almost three years is proportionally significant. It is either one or the other. You could instead say for about two or three years. This indicates that it happened sometime around there, probably gradually.
