Happy Mother's Day {mom}

{this was supposed to post yesterday}
 Happy Mother's Day to all the moms and mommies-to-be!
But more than that....Happy Mother's Day to my beautiful and awesome mom!

I love you and wouldn't be the person {mom} I am today without you. I can't thank you enough for putting up with all my childish ways in my childhood, teaching me right and wrong, tough love, lessons in life and how to be the best I can be.

           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
