If I could do it again...

If I could do it again...I would have made homemade baby food for my boys. I see all of these books about making fresh, real, organic baby food for babies and I get a pang of sadness that I didn't make my own baby food. I did a little bit with Ian...mainly because he did not like store bought baby food. (He was a foodie from the start, I guess!) I fed him a lot of mashed up bananas, pureed peas and green beans, boiled and mashed apples, ya know, easy things to mash. But I could have done more...and wish that I had.

If I could do it again...I would have home schooled my boys. I know, I's not for everyone. And maybe it wouldn't have been for me, either. But I think I would have done a good job. And I think the boys would have done well. I was seriously considering it when the boys were in grade school, twice. Ian was willing but Seth was not. And Chris wasn't really sure how he felt about it, so it never became reality. But if I could do it again, I would home school from the start. 

I know it's not good to look back with regret. And I don't regret anything really...only wish I'd known then what I know now. Don't we all? Because some of my decisions would be different if I had it to do over again. 

How about you? What would you do differently if you could have a chance to do it again?

Yep...would of homeschooled too. We would have killed each other, but it would of been so much better than what they have now.

I wish that when we were looking for the house that we're in now, we would've made it high priority to buy a place conducive to taking walks. I love going for walks but our road has no shoulders/sidewalks and the cars go too fast making going for walks unsafe. I would love to pick up our house and plot and drop it down on some back dirt or gravel road:-).
