BEFORE I WAS A MOM

I received this from a friend, and apparently, once you’ve been tagged you have to tag 5 other awesome moms in return. So I am tagging the following moms and mom bloggers to pass it on (I picked six, sue me):

Faerieheart
From the Cheap Seats
This Full House
The Crazy Housewife
Girl Scout Dropout
Diary of a Crazed Mommy

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 her 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 ten 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.
