Mommy Poem

I don't know if every women is like this or if its just me, but ever since I gave birth or actually it started when I was pregnant, I literally cry over EVERYTHING now! Its seriously so annoying and sometime embarrassing. I used to make fun of my mom for crying over a movie, a nice letter, a sweet poem or even nothing at all, and now I have turned into my Mother aggggghhhhhhh!!!!!! 

But anyways, here is an Awesome poem that Yes, made me cry and I just wanted to share cause its just so true:

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’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 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 wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn’t know I was capable of feeling so much, before I was a Mom

  1. It's not just you! Becoming a Mother in insanely can never be prepared for all the emotion and love you feel when you become a Mommy. I also don't think you appreciate your parents until you become one too. Have you heard of the book "Let me hold you longer" by Karen Kingsbury? I remember being pregnant with my son Jackson and reading this book and just sobbing uncontrollably. It's a great book about your children's Last instead of their first. Such a great book. God Bless! ~Amber
