I thought it might be helpful for moms to hear from each other the things they wish they could do over again. Maybe we will learn something from each other?
My kids are now young adults. I am happy with the amount of time I gave them when they were young, most of my choices I made and how I raised them. But if there was anything I could do over again, I would have to say that I would have appreciated them for who they are....and not try to make them into something I wanted them to be.

Well, my 17 yr old dd was killed in a car crash and I now say that I wish I would have been able to spend more time with her. I was a single mom at the time and worked my butt off. Also, more discipline. I would have been a better disciplinary figure instead of a friend. I felt bad that I was single and that I had to work. I am lucky though, I have 3 young babies that I got to stay home with now and spend all the time I can with. I get to change things I did "wrong" before. I just wish my oldest could be here to see them grow!
