The video that will make every busy woman rethink her lifestyle: Elderly ladies reveal what they’d do differently if they were young again (and their responses will make you question everything)
I really want to watch this video, but the baby is sleeping right beside me so anything with sound will have to wait until tomorrow. However, I read the following lines as I continued to hold my baby even after she had fallen asleep and I did not feel one bit guilty.
Each lady then recalls how she would have spent her time differently. One says: ‘What I wouldn’t give to extend those good night kisses instead of moaning about having to get up early in the morning.’
Another adds: ‘An extra second of cuddling my babies before they were too big to hold.’
Almost every night this week I’ve nursed til she fell asleep around 10:30 and when she woke up as I tried to lay her in her bed I just gave her to my husband and I went to sleep. I didn’t even wake up when they eventually came to bed. Yes, I was suffering from exhaustion and I needed it those nights. I was blessed with the ability to go to sleep those nights and I embraced that blessing.
But tonight is different. The week is almost over. I will gladly pay the price of exhaustion at work for an extra hour to savor her while she is young. There will be a price and my work won’t get 100% But my child is only little once and sacrificing all of my evenings is more than I’m willing to pay.
