I have never liked time travel movies because they do not take into account the changing A does not just affect B but many other things.

I like where I am now. I like the way my kids have turned out. Although I have been far from perfect I have no regrets because I have no way of knowing how if I had done things differently it would have affected the future.

what caught my attention from the author was that she has both, she's at a happy place and she is proud of her kids and where they're at, too - but - she still has regrets.

to answer my own questions, we are proud of our kids but i can't wait to see their goals, dreams, ambitions realized later.

I know what the author thinks, you explained it in your OP. I was answering your question of what I think. They really have nothing t do with each other as she and I are not the same person and would have different feelings on the same subject.

If it is the Laura Bush autobiography, I can't imagine any librarian regretting that she didn't read enough to her children. That's just not stereotypical.

Every librarian or ex-lib I know, including myself, read all the time to our babies and toddlers. All my 3 could recite the books we read long before they could actually read them. We rarely read together anymore (10, 13, 15), but we did until a couple of years ago. We still might have a poetry night now and again. We did a Blake reading and a Jabberwocky reading in the last few months (it beats game night in popularity).

I regret nothing, except some unfortunate haircut choices I inflected on both myself and some on my children. None of us look good in bangs.

Is this Laura Bush's book you're talking about? I was thinking of downloading it to my kindle, but my local paper just trashed it. What do you think of it?

My biggest regret--and this has nothing to do with SAH/WOH--is that I didn't figure out my DS's "love language" soon enough. No details, but I wish I had done some things differently.


I'm looking forward to my kids figuring out what they want to do for college, careers, etc.

At this point, I'm looking no further forward than Sunday.
