before i was a mum..

I get many forwarded lovey dovey emails throughout the day and week but I love this one.. so I thought I'd share it with all the wonderful mums out there.. love the time you have with your kids and who really cares about the puke.. thats what washing machines were invented for.. 

Before I was a Mum
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 Mum
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 Mum
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 Mum
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 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 Mum.

Before I was a Mum
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 Mum
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 Mum..
