Before I Was A Mom

Before I was a Mom
I made and ate hot meals.
I had unstained clothing.
I had quiet conversations on the phone.

Before I was a Mom
I slept as late as I wanted
And never worried about how late I got into bed.
I brushed my hair and my teeth everyday.

Before I was Mom
I cleaned my house each day.
I never tripped over toys

or forgot words to lullabies.

Before I was a Mom
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,
Or pinched by tiny fingers

Before I was a Mom
I was in complete control of my myself
My thoughts, My body, And my mind.
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 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 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.

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 wonderfulment,
Or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn't know I was capable
of feeling so much

before I was a Mom.
