Strange title, but the only one to fit this perfect. I’m going to go through all my regrets with my life of being a mum. Hopefully I will be able to help another mum from living the same regrets.
I remember going to the Grafton centre in Cambridge and getting my first ever contract phone. I was so proud, I remember showing off my pink LG to anyone. One day I couldn’t pay the bill our money was slightly short. Never being taught what to do and my advice it’s ok it will only blacklist the address. Sadly this advice was about 5 years old, from that 1 debt it just spiralled out of control, to the point we’re still not debt free over 10 years later.
Be the mum you want to be!
Due to the people around me I was convinced I was the worse mum ever. Being told that a young mum is not a good mum. But now I look back and because of them I wasn’t the mum I wanted to be, now I am but sadly its 13 years too late. If they telling you, your doing it wrong and yet no harm is coming to your children, ignore them and carry on.
Don’t waste my teen wages!
When I first met Anth I was working with my grandfather and a car firm. During this time I wasted a lot of money, which would of been amazing to of had to make a down payment on our own home.
I wish I continued to exercise after every child as normal now I have the body of a beached whale!
Photograph and video everything, even if you don’t want it public have your own private YouTube account. Then you can look back with your family at the happy memories. I know this is my biggest regret, changing Facebook after Facebook means I lost a lot of photos.
Hopefully these will help you not to have regrets as your children get older.
