    Default Before I was a mom poem

    A friend of mine sent me this several months before ds was born...now I know exactly what it means!!

    Before I was a Mom
    I slept as late as I wanted & never worried about how late I
    got into bed.
    I brushed my hair and my teeth everyday.
    Before I was a Mom -
    I cleaned house every day
    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, spit 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 that doctors could do
    tests or give shots. I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
    I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.
    I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
    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 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.
