Before I was a Mom…
I made and ate hot meals.  I had unstained clothing.  I had quiet conversations on the phone.
Before I was a Mom…  I slept as late as I wanted and never worried about  how late I got into bed.  I brushed my hair and my teeth everyday.
Before I was a Mom…  I cleaned my house each day.  I never tripped over toys or forgot words to lullabies.
Before I was a Mom…  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 or pinched by tiny fingers.  I had complete control of my mind, my thoughts, and my body.  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.
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.
