"Before I was a Mom, I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby. I didn't worry whether or not things were poisonous. I never thought about immunizations. I had never been puked on, pooped on, chewed on or peed on. I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts. I slept all night. 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 happy over a simple grin. I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep. I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put him down. I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt. 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. 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 stress, the wonderment & the satisfaction of being a Mom. I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much. Before I was a Mom, I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much or that I could love someone so much. I never knew that I would say I love being a Mom."
