Do over!

If you could have a single do over, what would you do?

I'd be stricter about my eating habits after I had DD. I was down 12 lbs immediately after her birth, but baby blues and stress got to me and I gained another 20. Now I'm having a lot of difficulty getting it off.

What about you?

In life?  Or in motherhood?

In life, I would have gone to a better college and gotten a RN degree.

In motherhood, I would have enjoyed the little moments more, knowing how quickly the kids grow up!

readingI have four kids.  I've been married 22 years. My favorite color is purple. I hate coffee. I read a lot. I love to go to movies alone. Hot weather makes me crabby.

I wouldn't do anything over. Because then I wouldn't be who and where i am today.

In either.

It doesn't have to be anything serious; quite frankly my do over deals with a part of myself I'd rather not have become, which is overweight. :-) I don't have any major decisions I'd do over.

Instead of giving in to DH wanting to move out of my moms and buying our pwn place, I should have rented. Were in debt like you wouldn't believe and BOTH got laid off!

I would have built credit younger. It's sad when living within your means equals you can't get a mortgage...

I'd put aside my upset with my MIL and make sure to visit her more often. Too late now. :(

I know how that feels. It was really difficult for us to get approved, and the limit we had was so low that we really, really were blessed to get the house we did.

In my mind I can think of a million things, but in reality, I wouldn't change a thing.  Everything I've done, every mistake I've made, made me the person I am today.
