What would you do differently?

now that our kids are a little older what do you wish you could do over.. just so things were easier? i was waaaay too mushy with my daughter. held her all the time, did everything on demand for her. I kindda wish i had put her down more back than. especially while she was sleeping. but that was the only time i could just sit back and just look at her :-D

  • I would have nursed longer, fed him later and wore him in a wrap. I would be WAY more of an attachment parenting kind of mom...crunchy granola kind of mom. And homeschooled. LOL

  • Nothing really.

    I love, appreciate, admire and am so very proud of the 17 year old young man that my son now is.

    Are there times I miss.. I would be lying if I said "no".. but there is nothing that I would go back and change or do differently.

  • Be less of a control freak, now they are, too. And that doesn't work out so well, having a house full of control freaks.

  • I wouldn't change a thing, everything happens for a reason.
