Journal :

Before I was a Mom I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby.

I didn't worry whether or not my furniture can harm achild.

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 babysleep.

Before I was a Mom I never held a sleeping baby just

because I didn't want to put them down.

I never felt my heart break into a million pieces whenI 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 allwas 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, beforeI was a Mom.
