~ Before I was "MOM!" ~

Before I Was A Mom

Before I was a Mom I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby.

I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.

I never thought about immunizations.

Before I was a Mom - I had never been puked on.
Pooped on.
Spit on.
Chewed on.
Peed on.

I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts.

I slept all night.

Before I was a Mom - I never held down a screaming child So that doctors could do tests.
Or give shots.

I never looked into teary eyes and cried.

I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.

Before I was a Mom - I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put it down.

I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt.

I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much.

I never knew that I could love someone so much.

I never knew I would love being a Mom.

Before I was a Mom - I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body.

I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.

I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child.

I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important and happy.

Before I was a Mom - I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.

I had never known the warmth, The joy, The love, The heartache, The wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom.

I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much before I was a Mom.

Send this to someone who you think is a special Mom or Grandma. I just did.
And remember that behind every successful mother......
Is a basket of dirty laundry.

    Quoting rm_studbunny69:
    you're a much more complete person now that you're a mom.

    you know your child will always love you no matter what.

Yes, I agree with you very much! I honestly have to say my daughter is my life....the air that I breathe....my heart...my everything. As she grows each and every day, she learns from me and I learn from her. She'll always be my #1 no matter what!
There are no "good enough" words for the way I feel for my daughter. No matter how old she gets, she'll always be my baby! (she's 13 yrs,old now
