TWO SENSE TUESDAYS #8...What would you do differently?

Being a new mother I seem to get a lot of advice, which can be helpful, but is also very frustrating when it's from people who are insistent that their way is the BEST way. I also get advice (because I'm an adoptive mother) from those who think that my son is just a stand-in until I get "the real thing."

Each week I will post a new question. I'd love it if you'd play along and offer us new mothers your pearls of wisdom.

HERE IS THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:

IF YOU COULD GO BACK AND DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN...WHAT IS SOMETHING YOU WOULD DO DIFFERENTLY IN RAISING YOUR CHILD?

I would have slept when they did instead of trying to clean because then Christ could have loved through my kids more without me being in the way.

Great idea for a topic.

I like Penny's answer.

I would have asked for help when I needed it. I was way too proud. I figured I had become a mom without their help (meaning they didn't help in any way) I didn't need it when she finally came home.
