You have to experience it all - the good and the bad. You can't just choose the good parts.
I love C&A to pieces and while there are certain moments I would love to have again, I voted no.

I have really enjoyed my year with Ben. I love all his stages and look forward to things to come. I can always go through a scrapbook to relive memories. So I voted 'no'. However, I'm always sad in a way to see him getting bigger and developing new skills because in my heart I feel Ben will be our only child. We want two children and I feel like I want to have twice as fun with each stage and really appreciate new developments since I probably wont experience this again.Debra and Jeff

I love my boys to death, but I wouldn't want to do live through the last year again. It was so hard with three trying to feed them at the same time, all of their needs and the crying. Now they are getting into everything but they are also having lots of fun. I have family that helps me and it's still hard.

For sure!! I have never been a baby person but that all changed when it was my own! Even through sleep issues, food issues, and dh issues I would love to go back to October 19th of last year and do it all again!

I voted yes even though its been hard and a huge adjustment for all of us. Most likely I am not having any more so to get to relive the first year of Mary's life and maybe do some things better would be a dream come true.
Now if she were twins...Liz

Yes, I would do it again. DH and I were just talking yesterday about how much more fun it is now with our second child. We really are more relaxed. I used to hate hearing about how much easier it is with successive children, but I guess there is some truth to it. The good of this year definitely outweighed the bad.

I voted "no" for obvious reasons. This year hasn't been good for me . I would DEFINATELY have more children (in a happy marriage) and I would definately have Mia again- she is my angel. However, there is no way in heck that I would relive this divorce, another year with my husband, or anything else dealing with the "war" I'm fighting...Courage is not freedom from Fear.
It is being afraid and continuing on.
