    Default Before I was a Mom layout

    I got this email from my mom - a fwd for amazing moms ... I normally delete, but I read it and it made me cry, so I put it on a layout (naturally! lol). The picture is of Kaitlyn and I on her 'birth' day, she was about 2 hours old - I need to add that to the layout somewhere.

    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.

    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 .

    That is one beautiful LO. Love it!!! great job and beautiful picture

    That's really too funny that your mom gave you that poem b/c my mom gave me the same poem about 2 months after ds was born. It makes me get teary eyed whenever I read it.
