I wouldn't have worked so hard. I would have enjoyed the children more.

I would have asked for help more then I did. I am a very independent person and felt that I didn't need help. Pretty much like I am with everything that I do, lol.

I would have loved to have gotten more rest.  I didn't take those times when the baby was sleeping to get rest, I'd clean the house or something that needed to get done, which is important as well, but I really needed that sleep.

Asked for more help rather then feeling like I had to do it all on my own
