Before I Was a Mom

Before I was a Mom, I never tripped over toys or notice of any baby fairs/sales. I didn't worry whether or not my pronouncation was accurate.  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 comfort a crying baby so doctors could 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 saw a baby fall from the bed. 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 wonder mentor the satisfaction of being a Mom.  I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much, before I was a Mom. =)
