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 him 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.
