  • I don't have any, other than I wished we lived in a different state. I'm not crazy about where we are now. There's just no culture here. However, we'll most likely be moving back to California (San Francisco) soon enough.

  • I don't have any regrets yet, except stupid stuff like I wish I had been closer when he rolled off the bed that one time, stuff like that. But he is only 20 months old so I haven't had a huge opportunity to screw him up just yet.

  • That we put TVs in their rooms - worst decision we could have ever made. They would retire to their bedrooms and not come out to interact.

  • So far it's that I couldn't be a SAHM. My son is almost 4, and I feel like I've missed so much of his life already. My daughter is 7 months, and I'm kind of compromising with her. On the days I work from home, I keep her with me, but pretty soon she's going to be too active for me to be able to work and take care of her. Hopefully, DH will be getting a promotion soon, which pull him on the fact tract career-wise, and I can be a SAHM in the next 2-3 years.

  • Honestly, nothing. I have made some minors missteps but overall, I feel that I am a great mother.
