  • One Of My Favorite Poems.

    I came across this poem last year, and it brought me to tears (in a nice way).
    Thought I would share

    Before I was a Mom I never tripped over toys.
    I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.
    Before I was a Mom - I had never been puked, pooped, chewed, or peed on.
    I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts.
    I slept all night.
    I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
    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 when I couldn't
    stop the hurt.
    I never knew that I could love someone so much.
    Before I was a Mom - I didn't know the feeling of having my heart
    outside my body.
    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 didn't know I was capable of feeling so much, before I was a mom.

    This poem is very true. It's message doesn't change with the years. No matter how old your child gets, it is still the same.

    Shopping??? Did someone mention shopping? I'll get my hat... ;-)
