so i'm on a chapter in a book in which the author talks about regrets.
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.
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.
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.
it's barbara bush, a memoir.
