  • Have a career and I wish children came with books. Maybe I'll be a better mom towards my children. I have 2 children age 24 yrs old and 19 yrs old and they don't even speak to one another. They never physically fought with one another when they were growing up which I'm very pleased.

  • Almost the exact same thing as MyAngel003. I also wished I got to enjoy being newly wed couple for a few years before we had our son

  • I am with ImaginationMama. I had a degree and career before children, I was with LP for 7 years "alone" first, we had a home and a savings...I imagine by everyone's standards we did alright with the planning. I just WISH I could sleep when I wanted sometimes! I have never slept solidly at night, but I used to be able to go to bed as early or late as wanted, sleep in on the weekends, and nap to offset my "sleep debt", but that was over when the babies started coming and I miss it so much!!
