This week’s Saturday Sidebar Question comes from World Moms Blog writer Alison Lee.  She asked our writers,

If you could turn back time and go back to just one day, which day would it be and why?”

Check out what some of our World Moms had to say…

The day of Roxanne Piskel's son's birth

The day, Roxanne Piskel of Nevada, USA gave birth to her son.

RoxIsBrilliant of Nevada, USA writes:
“As much turmoil as there was surrounding my son’s premature birth, there is still a part of me that would like to go back and do it again. Even if everything happened exactly the same way, maybe I could hold onto the memories a little snugger and not forget so much of the beginning.”

Carol @ If By Yes of British Columbia, Canada writes:
“Definitely I do not want to go back to the day my child was born. I want to go back to a day when my nether regions weren’t bleeding, like maybe my wedding day. I had a blast.”

Alison Lee of Malaysia writes:
“I’d go back to the day my husband proposed. Though, I will change it a little to make it to a less early start, since he burst into my apartment at 5am to do that!”

Meredith of Nigeria writes:
“Both of the days my children came into my life are days I would want to go back to, but since I can only pick one, it would have to be the day my almost 7 month old son was placed in my arms forever. My husband and I had waited so long to have a family and I’ll never forget that moment.”

The day Susie Newday of Israel got married.

The day, Susie Newday of Israel got married.

Susie Newday of Israel writes:
“I wrote a post like this a while back. I think it is our past that teaches us how to be the people want to be. It is what helps us grow and develop. Our mistakes are the best teachers we have.”

ThirdEyeMom of Minnesota, USA writes:
“I would go back the day of my wedding. It was one of the best times of my life!”

Travel Lady with Baby of Quebec, Canada writes:
“I wouldn’t want to relive any day more than another. Every person, past and present, or moment, was meant to bring me here, to this place.”

Jacki of Paris, France writes:
“At the risk of being a downer, one of my best friends passed away very unexpectedly of a blood clot in her sleep at the tender age of 30. I hadn’t seen her in about two weeks and was supposed to see her the following day. I’d definitely go back in time to say goodbye.”

Mamma Simona of South Africa writes:
“I totally agree with Travel Lady. I’ve always lived my life in the best way I was able to, given my circumstances.”

Purnima of India writes:
“There is no day I would want to go back to again. I do not want to live any day more than once, because the lessons I draw from them has brought me here and I want to live this day wisely and happily.”

What about you… If you could turn back time and go back to just one day, which day would it be and why?
