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.  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 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.
