Do you have any regrets as a parent?

Do you look back at your life as a mom and regret any happenings that occurred and knowing what you do now, how would you have changed this if you could do all over again?

hmm... not really - except I wouldn't have brought half of the stuff I did for my son.

I may have waited another year for baby #2 (3 year gap instead of a 2 year gap). At this stage, I am ok with my almost 2 and almost 4 year old, but the first two years were REALLY challenging.

by deciding to get married you know exactly and need to accept that everything is in full package....... become a wife, become a mom, a housemaid, cook, do the laundry, and most specially to be a NANNY to ur kids...... In my case i have no regrets for what i have and what i am right now coz this is what i've chose. although we cannot avoid that in our marriage life trials and difficulties sets in but we need to overcome it and never took it as a burden but as a challenge..... i do enjoy being a MOm its really fulfilling when you saw ur childrens growing as what you wanted them to be.......have a nice day.....

Regrets being a mom? No. I would, however, like to have been able to stay home with my children. Financially, that wasn't in the cards. I was earning more than my husband so we both made a decision that he should stay home during the day, while I'm at work, then go to school at night. Money was tight but with some luck and help from our families, we made it through the before school age.

it's not really regretting for me...i just feel sorry for myself a bit because i want to be hands-on with my son...i cant because i'm working overseas to support him...sometimes we need to make tough decisions...and whaterver the outcome will be...believe me, i only want what's best for him...
