Regrets

March 30th, 2012 by admin

I get asked every once in awhile by my children, “Mommy what is that?” The question is in reference to a tattoo. I have to explain to them what that tattoo is. Then they ask, “Why did you do that?” So I tell them, well I wanted it when I was 18, now being older, I would not choose to put that there. “Oh” they say.

How do you explain to your children so they understand that what you know you want when you are 18 is not at all what you usually want when you are a few years older. I can’t think of a way because at 18 kids know exactly what they want and need, I was so naive then, and so are many 18 year olds. I hope mine are smarter but as they say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. So if they don’t listen to my advice about it I guess they will most likely pass the same advice on to their own children, who won’t listen either.
