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'tstop the hurtI 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 - 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. didn't know that bond between a mother and her child. Ididn't know that something so small could make me feel so important and happy.

Before I was a Mom - 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 I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much, before I was aMom.

I always like that when I come across that. The having your heart outside your body always chokes me up.
