Life for Dummies

I woke up this AM (Thank God) thinking about when my boys were younger. And cried. I would really like a second chance. Not that they turned out bad. In fact, for being on the autoraised pilot they all have done quite well. I do not believe in reincarnation. But I certainly would appreciate a chance to come back as a young mother again.......with the same children of course. Values would be different. More memories would be made. Getting old sucks. Can't we live life over? Why is an important thing such as living only a once in a lifetime deal? We can take the SATs, ACTs over and over. We can repeat classes that we fail. We can redo a driver's test. We can even get a divorce and remarry. So why can we not relive? This is the one thing that can really count......and it is a one time shot. If you do not get it right the first time, you are screwed. Don't you think something this important should have second chances?
