Before I was a 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 if my house plants were poisonous.
I didn't worry about my carpets being so clean or my cabinets safety locked.

Before I was a mom.......
I had never been puked on.
Pooped on
Chewed on
Peed on
slobbered on.

Before I was a Mom...
I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts.
I slept all night and enjoyed staying in bed later on weekends.
I never held down a screaming child so a doctor could give a shot.
I never looked into teary eyes and wept myself.

Before I was a Mom....
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late at night watching a baby sleep.
I never held a sleeping baby for hours just because I didn't want to put him down.

Before I was a Mom....
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 I would cherish every moment and those moments would turn into memories that would last forever.

Before I was a mom...
I never knew my heart could love this much.
I never knew my chest could swell so much with pride.
I never knew my eyes could cry so many tears.
I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body.
I never knew how much I would love being a Mom.
