Happy Mother's Day!

Before I was a Mom...
I slept as late as I wanted and never worried about how late I got into bed. I brushed my hair and my teeth everyday.

Before I was a Mom...
I cleaned my house each day. 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. Spit 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 that 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 it 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.

I was bombarded with gifts from the girls this morning. A plaster house from The Princess, complete with her picture in one of the windows. Two bouquets of pipe cleaner flowers. A handprint decorated with jewels from The Princess; The Dragon doesn't want to give me hers, she too attached. A card from The King. The King also let me sleep in and cooked breakfast. Yummy. He was also very funny because everytime I tried to do something (like pour myself some juice or start the dishwasher) he wouldn't let me do it. But then the race (NASCAR) started. Now I'll be giving The Dragon a bath. :P I'm not upset, it's just funny. He did say he would come and wash her hair though.

Happy Mother's Day, all ya'll!
