Before I was a mom.....

For all you Beautiful Mommies!!!!

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.

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 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 them down.

I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when

couldn't stop the hurt.

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


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.

Hey Dora,
Good to hear from you on my blog. It's been 9 years at least. Time flies doesn't it. I can see you are a very proud mommy!
Blogs are great aren't they, so you can see what people are up to? Up to recently only family has been on my blog so it's sorta geared towards them.
Hope you have a nice Easter!
Take care,
