  • Hmmm....I don't know. I am in no way saying that I'm perfect, but I make such an effort in every area that it's hard to say. I could make my own baby food, but it's so much easier to buy the jarred. I could also rinse his mouth out after his bottle before bed...even though he only has two tiny teeth poking through, lol. Actually, I plan on going to buy one of the baby tooth brushes tomorrow because that's been bugging me. I'm sure I could think of other things, but those are the only things coming to mind right now, lol.

  • I could have a cleaner house. I hate housework and I get overwhelmed by it sometimes. Also at times I have my kids watch tv so I can get things done and I don't like that. If I just had the discipline to do the housework everyday, throughout the day I wouldn't be stressed about it.

  • I could run, so far away that my teens couldnt find me and where forced to fend for themselves. Is that an option here?

  • I could sit & play with my 4 year old DD and I could have a little more patience with her!

  • Play with my son more. My husband is usually the "fun" one. I'm the one that is constantly running around getting things done so when I do have a spare moment I usually take it for myself. I could be using that time to be with my son regardless of how tired I am.

  • More patience! I am always working on it but I think I would be a better mom if I had more of it!

  • have a cleaner house and be more patient. my house inst really dirty but it def looks lived in....and i sometimes get mad at my kids and yell at them after asking them umpteen times to do something. ie brushing teeth picking up toys getting ready for bed. :( i feel like a monster when i yell at them. and would like to change that first and foremost.

  • I could have more patience. I do pretty good, but there are times when my son wears my patience thin. Lol, I think it is a tween thing.
